Bhan Tre is a band which can only be classified as unique and exciting.

Bhan Tre perform as an acoustic trio with a repertoire of traditional Irish tunes and a selection of original material with a strong Celtic flavour.

Corona Virus Arrangements

Victoria is again in lockdown. Our next dance and our next concert were to have been live events in their halls. Alas, this is no longer possible.

Please monitor this web site for details of forthcoming events as the situation may change rapidly. We will post any changes as soon as we possibly can.

If you have purchased a ticket for any VFMC event which has to be changed, canceled or postponed, VFMC will offer flexible refund or transfer arrangements.

Obviously we intend that regular VFMC Sessions, and Concerts, and Dances will be maintained as normally as possible as the virus continues its course. All seem to agree that making music in the company of each other is preferable to soloing alone at home, and the Committee is keen to get back to meeting at the halls when we feel it is entirely safe to do so.

The VFMC Committee are well advanced in preparing CovidSafe plans which are published on this web site. We have tested the technology for online Zoom access at the halls so people can continue participating in VFMC Sessions and Concerts remotely, from home or wherever you happen to be in the world on any Tuesday night.
