Past and Present Members Social Event

Following the popularity of our 50th Anniversary Concert, we have decided to arrange a social event at the Magnet Pub in Castleford on Friday 2nd September 2016 so past members can have a proper catch-up! Tickets are priced at £5, but due to the capacity of the function room, will be offered on a strict 'first-come, first-served basis' and only to past and present members of our organisation.

To book your place at the event, please complete this form, or give us a call on (01977) 511971.

50th Anniversary Concert

Our 50th Anniversary Concert takes place on Friday 20th May and with just a handful of tickets remaining, it's looking like it's going to be a full house. We can't wait to celebrate our anniversary with past and present members, and of course our family, friends and supporters!

CYM are currently looking for someone to come along and help our Choir Director. Hopefully this would eventually lead to taking over the directorship of the choir. This is a voluntary position and rehearsals are held on Friday evenings 7pm-9pm (term time only). This would be a great opportunity for anyone who enjoys choral work with a membership of young people aged between 8 and 25 years. For any further information or interest, please contact our secretary on (01977) 511971.
