Our Patron - Trevor Herbert
We are really grateful to our Patron, Trevor Herbert, for taking on this role. It is a pleasure to work with Trevor and we would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his continuing support.
Trevor is well-known locally for his association with Hobbs House Bakery but also has a long-standing interest in music, particularly choral works. He is currently a member of Stroud Choral Society and performs with them regularly. Trevor and his family have supported our Society for many years and we look forward to enjoying a future of listening to great music together.

In 1947 the Downleaze Music Club was founded by a group of music enthusiasts to encourage the appreciation of music by means of illustrated talks, lectures and gramophone recitals. Over the following years the club developed and prospered so by the 1960s live concerts were introduced. Supported by local financial assistance and sponsorship, musicians of considerable talent and acclaim were engaged and the club gained a reputation for promoting music concerts of the highest quality and excellence.
In 1990 the Downleaze Music Club changed its name to Chipping Sodbury Music Society, attracting members and sponsorship from a much wider area. It also enhanced its reputation by promoting concerts given by artists of international renown and by engaging young talented musicians at the beginning of their careers.
In the 21st century the objective of the society is no different from that of those enthusiasts who met seventy years ago “... to bring together lovers of good music and musicians in a friendly and convivial atmosphere...”
Our 2022-23 Season celebrating our 75thyear with a sublime Season of a vasriety of musical styles by amazing musicians.
