Friends of Chapel Sessions, Royal Victoria Country Park Netley Southampton

Chapel Sessions is a community led notforprofit profit occasional music series in the acoustically acclaimed Chapel at Royal Victoria Country Park Netley Southampton on the shores of Southampton Water. Hosts John and Sonja Davison aim to showcase a mix of internationally renowned musicians of wide ranging genres supported by local artists.

So far we have welcomed from New York Nell Bryden and Jenn Bostic from Nashville who played to full houses. We feel it’s important to involve local people and we have a long list of ideas and contacts for future Chapel Sessions. We have various volunteering opportunities for differing concerts including poster & Flier design, social networking about the events, web page design, ticket sales, flier delivering in Hamble and Netley, bar volunteers, raffle ticket sellers, second hand CD sales to raise funds for Chapel Sessions, hospitality, recycling at end of the evening ……..and the list is endless as we have differing challenges for each concert.
If you would like to get involved in any way whilst encouraging as many people to come and support Chapel Sessions as possible, we would be very grateful and can be contacted via twitter @chapel_sessions
