When the church is hired for a concert or event, a reasonable time is allowed for setting up and rehearsals, sound checks etc. There is small staging available, made up of 16 units, each 750 millimetres square. These can be arranged according to need. A grand piano is available, also a pipe organ. The cost of tuning prior to a concert is the responsibility of the hirer. Details of our contracted tuner will be given.

Tea, coffee and soft drinks with biscuits and cake, or a licenced bar serving wine, bottled beer and soft drinks can be arranged. There is no additional charge to the hirer for this service – the church will retain the profits.

The church is a PRS licenced venue. Promoters should, if registered, make their own royalty returns to the PRS, otherwise a member of the music committee can undertake this.

The cost of hire for concerts etc. is £130.00


Funeral £108.00; Interment of ashes £161.00; Memorial tablet £42.00; Heating if required £75.00; Organist £80.00; Choir £100.00.

Hay Madrigals are seeking new members to join our chamber choir, especially sopranos, altos and tenors. Our singers range from people with not much choral experience and/or who can’t read music, to those who can read and/or have lots of experience. Everyone is welcome.
The rehearsals are informal and fun, and the music is made approachable for all abilities.
If you are at all interested in joining us we’d love to hear from you.
We rehearse on Saturday mornings for the last three Saturdays of the month and Sunday afternoon for the first weekend of the month, at St Mary’s Church, Hay. (However the day after tomorrow we will be at my house, in Hay….)
More info is on, and there are lots of vids on Hay Madrigals. Our next concert is on December 10th.
If you’re interested please either message me or email me on for further info. We would love to hear from you.
