FRMS - WHO ARE WE?

The Federation of Recorded Music Societies (FRMS) can claim to have played its part in developing greater enthusiasm and understanding of recorded classical music over a substantial portion of the past century.

As the "National Federation of Gramophone Societies", the Federation was launched in 1936. Although the title has been changed to reflect more recent developments, the aims of the movement have remained basically unaltered and the attraction is still present in the 21st century as over 200 societies continue to ply their trade.

ADVANTAGES OF AFFILIATION TO THE FRMS

Our main function is to manage licensing arrangements with Performing Right Society Ltd (PRS) and Phonographic Performance Ltd (PPL) for the licences necessary for performing recorded music in public, on terms favourable to our members. The fees are greatly reduced from those normally applied by these organisations for individual licences. A particular benefit of this arrangement is that it is the society itself that is licensed and not the premises. This means that the society is covered for PRS and PPL wherever it chooses to meet.

Music breaks in the Cotswolds

Farncombe Estate is situated in the North of the Cotswolds just outside the picturesque village of Broadway. Set within 300-acres of privately owned parkland, we offer weekend leisure breaks, day courses and other events all year round. Our course programme includes a very broad range of subjects - almost anything from Art to Zen, (but if you can't find what you're looking for, please do contact us).
