Welcome to the British Flute Society

The British Flute Society is Europe's oldest flute organisation and has a lot to offer its members. Pan, the Society's journal, is recognised world-wide as a highly informative and entertaining flute journal. Every quarter Pan brings you articles on all aspects of the flute and flute playing. It is the authoritative guide to the latest flute news, listings of concerts, courses and reviews of new music, books and recordings.

Welcome from BFS Chair Malcolm Pollock

As the newly elected Chair of the British Flute Society it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the British Flute Society’s website. I do hope that you enjoy exploring the site and that you will find it a valuable resource. If you are a current member of the Society you will find information about how to log in to the members' area of the site to view recent issues of the BFS journal.

If you are not currently a member of the Society we hope that you would consider joining us, becoming part of a wide network of flute players based both in the UK and overseas. Members receive a range of benefits including the well-respected quarterly journal, Pan. We also run regular events for our members including the prestigious BFS-RAM Premier Flautist Series, our annual competitions for flute players under the age of 25 years, and the biennial BFS International Convention, as well as supporting regional events.

Whether or not you are a member you can contact us for further information about the society’s work, or to make comments and suggestions regarding the website. I look forward to meeting many of you during my time as Chair. 

Malcolm Pollock
Chair, British Flute Society
