Join MPS At Freshers’ 2018!

Joining the University of Sheffield in September 2018? Want to play music in a band?

Then why not join the Music Players’ Society (MPS)! We offer the opportunity to play in up to 8 different bands, which are all non-auditioned, for just £5 for the year.

As well as weekly rehearsals and regular socials, we offer unrivalled performance opportunities all over Sheffield. Last year we played over 60 gigs, with everything from sit-down concerts, to care-homes, to society balls, to weddings, to jazz nights, to the stages of Plug and Leadmill! This Summer, we even took 6 of our bands on tour to Amsterdam.

New members are always welcome to join MPS and we do not ask people to pay membership until they’ve been to more than 2 rehearsals, so everyone has a chance to try before they buy. Feel free to contact MPS via Facebook or email if you have any questions.

Give It A Go Events

This September, we will be putting on a series of free “Give It A Go” events aimed at giving people a chance to try out as many of our bands as they’d like. No sign up is required, just bring your instrument (or sticks!) and wait outside Sheffield Students’ Union just before the rehearsal start times mentioned below. One of our members will then lead you to our rehearsal venue.
