Great Bowden Recital Trust (GBRT)

GBRT is a registered music charity based in Market Harborough whose aim is music development, appreciation and participation for all.  GBRT runs five choirs and ensembles for young people and adults, two of which rehearse at Great Bowden Village Hall. The Trust also provides funding for instrumental and vocal lessons for local young people who struggle to finance them and organises an annual Junior X Factor talent competition, regular concerts in the local area and further afield and European concert tours. We are always happy to welcome new members to our ensembles and if we don’t have a space available immediately, we can add your name to a waiting list.
