The sound of music, singing, dancing, quizzes, meeting with friends, quiet contemplation; these are all things associated with Christmas and of course are found in the Chantry all year round. Extend those Christmas feelings and join one or more of our groups (47 in all), there’s something for everyone, or even start your own.

A Happy and Peaceful Christmas to everyone.  


Give a gift to the Chantry

Thank you to those of you who are already members, we really appreciate your gifts. When the Chantry was bought by the town in 1966 everyone needed to be a member of the Chantry to be able to use the bar but this rule does not apply now. We still encourage people to become members of the Chantry for the annual gift of only £4 single and £8 per family per year and by signing up to be members you will be. 

  1. Supporting the essential ongoing repair programme and updating of facilities.
  2. Receiving priority notice of all news and events through a monthly ‘News from the Chantry’ newsletter.
  3. Able to vote at the A.G.M.
