website for details of how you can become involved.
Open evening for new members
If you are new to NMPAT, and would like to have a look around the Kettering Road Music and Arts Centre, there will be an opportunity to do that on Friday 2nd September from 4.30pm - 6.30pm. NMPAT will be opening its doors to new county group members to come and look around, see where their rehearsal will be, meet some of our staff and existing students and find out what it’s going to be like before they start.
NMPAT has a staff/student committee called ‘Student Voice’ which helps steer the organisation in the direction the students want it to go. If you have any ideas or suggestions you would like to put forward to that committee you can do that by using the suggestion box in the Common Room or by emailing
