Libraries Hiring music sets from the Henry Watson Music Library

Requesting music sets

We have a large selection of both Orchestral sets and Vocal score sets, which are available to hire for choirs, orchestras and music groups.

Who can borrow?

Any musical society can register for this service but you must be able to collect directly from us, as we do not post sets out.

How do I register?

Group membership is free.

If you wish your group to become a member we will need a group representative who will take personal responsibility for sets borrowed to the group. We will need their details and they will also be required to sign our terms and conditions of hire on the first visit. The representative will also be required to provide proof of where your organisation rehearses and performs (majority of times) as different charges apply to Manchester and non Manchester groups.

If you change your group representative you must advise us, so your membership can be updated - a new terms and conditions of hire will also need to be signed on your next visit.
