MIDI-evening music in Wakefield – 3rd July

The population’s Wakefield Club has got to rockwrok, rockwrok, rockwrok…

The Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) meets once again tomorrow evening, and this month Peter Richmond will be talking about creating and playing MIDI music on computers – so get ready to, er, “rock” (wrocc?) the Club’s regular venue:

The West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club,
Sandal Hall Close (off Walton Lane),
(A61) Barnsley Road,
Sandal,
Wakefield,
WF2 6ER.

The meeting takes place at 7:45pm, and there is a bar for refreshments and free parking for those who drive.

WROCC members can get in for free, but any non-members who wish to attend will have to pay a £3.00 entry fee – but they also have the option of joining, with the annual membership of £15.00 reduced to just £7.50 in the first year. As well as free entry into meetings, benefits of that membership fee include a free newsletter, delivered by email as a PDF (with versions also available to download in different layouts), and access to the Club’s online discussion forum.

Looking ahead, a general pot-pourri is planned for the August meeting, and no details have yet been announced for September and October – but for November the Club has lined up Chris Cox to give a talk. Having visited the RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) in February to hear Chris give a talk, I can thoroughly recommend putting this date in your diaries if you are able to attend – and if you aren’t a member, why not think about joining the group as well?
