What is MUMS?

Manchester University Music Society (MUMS) is a society whose aim is to bring together those who are as passionate about music as we are and provide them with the opportunities to hear and perform it on a regular basis. We are one of the largest, most active and most ambitious music societies in the country and are completely student run. 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.

We are largely based in the Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama, holding almost all of our rehearsals within the building, as well as most of our concerts. However, we have other gigs and bandnights in pubs around Manchester and we also have a few events in Club Academy.
