The annual payment for membership in the 2018-19 season is £165. This comprises a subscription of £148 and a tuition fee of £17. (The tuition fee does not qualify for Gift Aid.) Payment may be made electronically by bank transfer, or by cheque made payable to Harpenden Choral Society.

Members who are under 30, full-time students, or in receipt of income-related benefits, may make a reduced annual payment of £50.

Where members wish to spread the cost of the full payment of £165, there is the option to pay in instalments:

·      by cheque (3 instalments)

·      by Standing Order (9 instalments).


Please note that the option to pay electronically by bank transfer in 3 instalments is no longer available. This is to facilitate control over payments and reduce the need for the Treasurer to issue reminders.

To set up a Bill Payment from your bank account you will need the following information:

It is important to include all the zeros in the Account Number. Please include your surname in the payment reference, so that the Treasurer can see who has made the payment.
