Three Counties Musical Society

Some old news . . .

3Cs are so happy to be performing again regularly in the newly built / refurbished Duchess Theatre in Long Eaton, whole again after the devastating fire of November 2003. With its 180-seat, fully-tiered auditorium and large stage, together with generous dressing rooms, bar and coffee bar and a welcoming foyer, this fine theatre will serve the town well and is already in regular demand from some twenty or so local amateur performing groups. See the Duchess Theatre website.

In May 2011, the Society proudly wore new ladies’ concert costumes, designed and made entirely by Winifred Meadows, our talented Wardrobe Mistress.

The Society is delighted to have been associated, for the second time, with the Multiple Sclerosis Society for Research in its fund-raising effort in Nottinghamshire in May 2012. Through the hard work and dedication of Maggie Eagle and her team, a sum exceeding £1,100 was raised for this worthwhile cause, the majority coming from 3C’s very well received concert in St. Mary’s Church, Radcliffe-on-Trent, where the audience waved their flags and joined in with a rousing and patriotic Jubilee Celebration.


Eric Brook, Founding Chairman of Three Counties Musical Society, is the proud owner of St. George, an impressive 47’ vessel, built in 1935, which he has restored and keeps moored on the River Soar at Kegworth near Loughborough. This boat was selected to take part in HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the River Thames in June 2012; in fact, Eric was invited by The Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire to represent her and the county at this prestigious event and to fly the county’s flag.

Members of the Musical Society, along with crowds of Eric’s many friends and family, gave the boat a good send-off from Willow Moorings on St. George’s Day in April on its way down to the River Trent and the sea - with much flag-waving - all witnessed by local television crews and the press.
