I will be able to give out the tickets for all those who asked for extras; please remember to bring some money (or cheques) £18 Concessions £14

We will also be thinking about the concert arrangements. Thank you to all who have signed up on the volunteer sheets especially for the staging. There is a particular need for willing helpers early in the afternoon, Friday 27th, to help bring staging up from the basement. Talk to Tim and Robert about this. Check with Mary about the Bar. We will need some staff by 6.00pm on the night since there is a pre-concert talk and the bar will be open.

3) Final rehearsal Saturday 28th November, 2pm start, St Luke’s Church, Ramsden Road SW12 – obligatory attendance. Please arrive by 1.45pm at the latest in order to be seated. We are a double choir and though every effort will be made to ensure you can sit next to friends, be prepared for the seating arrangement to be a bit different from rehearsals. We will be asking the Small Choir to sit together at the front.
