If you are not currently a member of the Society we hope that you will consider joining us to become part of our wide network of flute players based both in the UK and overseas. Members come from all walks of life and include amateur and professional players, teachers, students, the flute trade, and people who simply love the flute.

BFS Celebratory Picnic in the Park
Bring a picnic and join members of the BFS for an informal 30th anniversary celebration in Regent's Park following Trevor Wye's recital on Sunday 23 June (weather permitting).
The recital will conclude at approximately 5.30 pm and we propose that members of the audience should walk together to the York Gate entrance to Regent's Park, turn left just after York Bridge, and meet on Holme Green (by the lake and bandstand). Please click here to view a map of Regent's Park.
Please note that the parks are home to a rich variety of wildlife and visitors are asked to follow simple guidelines when picnicking in the Royal Parks. Please read these guidelines carefully and remember to take home all litter.
