    New to EMFS events? We welcome a wide range of ability and experience to our music-making days. To get the most out of the day you should be a reasonably competent music reader with some experience of singing/playing early music notated in minims. As well as “early” instruments (recorders, viols, cornetto, curtal etc), we welcome modern strings and other sympathetic instruments. If in doubt, please get in touch.

    Registration is from 10.00am for a 10.30 start and the day will finish at around 4pm. The church is 5 minutes walk from Falkirk Grahamston rail station, with parking close by. Some parking spaces are available in the church grounds for those with mobility issues or travelling with large instruments – please request via the online form.
