Guilsborough Music and Performing Arts Centre

We’re back at Guilsborough Centre this academic year! 

Welcome to all of our new members, and welcome back to those returning – it’s great to have you with us and we look forward to what will hopefully be a full year of uninterrupted Centre activities. 

It’s not too late to join us – you can register at any time using this online link:  

If you have already attended Centre this academic year you do not need to register again.  Please make payment for the current term via the ParentPay Shop.

Once you’ve completed the online form, Rachel Cliffe, Centre Head, will be in touch with some more information ahead of your first evening with us. Some classes are already over-subscribed and waiting lists are in operation where this is the case.  This mainly applies to Little Stars (early years) where we also offer weekday classes in Northampton – please click here for more information. 

Students receiving small group or individual tuition with an NMPAT teacher, or students taking a “First Access follow on” project at their school are eligible to receive a fully subsidised first term of activities. 

Families in financial need are encouraged to apply for remission of fees – please ask your Centre Head if you would like to apply. 

Membership subscription of £55 per term is due at the start of each term. (A new term begins in September, January and April) 

Our team of staff are excited to be back delivering ensembles and activities that have been designed around our existing membership, ensuring everyone has something of interest to get involved with!  

Our Centres’ areas of expertise include:  

  • Guitar  
  • Percussion 
  • Rock and Pop   
  • Ukulele  
  • Keyboard 
  • Singing 
  • Groups for students with no prior experience

When you register at will be given an opportunity to say which Centre you’d like to attend, as well as a little bit about what activities you might like to try. Once we know what your preferences are, your Centre Head will be in touch with you again ahead of your first Centre session so that we can be sure we have classes that will suit you.  

We look forward to seeing you soon! 

Following your free taster session, payment of £55 per term applies.  Please make payment via the ParentPay Shop.  Families in financial need are encouraged to apply for remission of fees – please ask your Centre Head if you would like to apply.
