What is MUMS?

Manchester University Music Society (MUMS) is a society whose aim is to bring together those across the University who are as passionate about music as we are! With over 400 members, we are one of the largest, most active and most ambitious student run music societies in the country. Our dedicated committee works tirelessly to provide our members with a huge range of concerts, chances to perform, socials and other opportunities both on and off campus, as well as working with other societies such as the University Chorus to provide even more exciting ways to get involved with music.

MUMS is open to everyone. The only prerequisite for joining the society is a love of music. If that's how you feel then MUMS is the place for you. Whether to play or to hear, typically around 500 people join MUMS every year. The mission of the society is to bring together people who are passionate about music in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and provide them with opportunities to hear and make music on a regular basis to a high standard. This is done through an established range of around 50 concerts through the year, a number of ensembles and social events.
