NMPAT Daventry Centre

While Centres are not able to meet in person, we have a brand new initiative: NMPATVC our new virtual Centre.

 Just like the regular centres you don’t need any experience to join in, and there is something for everyone who enjoys Music and the Performing Arts to participate in.
Register your attendance here or email for more information.
Sessions will be held on Saturday mornings from 9.30-12.30 via Zoom. There will be a timetable of activities including:
  • A welcome and warm-up session
  • Instrumental ensembles for all standards
  • Musical theatre
  • Adult community choir
  • Weekly workshops including GM, Jazz, Folk and Drama

​NMPAT Daventry Centre meets at DSLV every Saturday morning in term time. We pride ourselves in offering activities that are relevant and of current interests to the young people in the town and surrounding area.

A timetable of face-to-face activities will be made available once we have confirmation around resuming meetings at the Centre.

A recent addition to our timetable is a Ukulele class which has proved extremely popular for all age groups. Another new venture is Rock School, for those wanting to specialise in Rock, Pop and contemporary music.

These are in addition to our usual popular classes which include:

  • junior and senior orchestras
  • jazz, wind bands
  • choirs, brass group
  • 3 x string orchestras
  • drama, dance
  • chamber music
  • percussion groups
  • music technology
  • guitar ensembles
  • keyboards
  • recorders
  • mini-strings
  • music-making – something for everyone, (all abilities) from age 4 upwards

We hold our concerts at Christmas and at the end of the summer term; our senior groups perform regularly at charity and community events and we support and enter local and national music festivals. Our priority is to give everyone an opportunity to perform in a friendly and supportive environment.

The Rock School has several other performances throughout the year, with many of its members starting their own rock bands at school.
