Information for members

Rehearsals

Rehearsals take place every Monday from September to July except during Christmas, Easter and half-term breaks. Holiday dates are announced at the start of each term. Members are expected to attend at least 7 rehearsals for each concert, and should consult the membership secretary or musical director if they find that impossible. Rehearsals run from 7.30 to 9.30 pm with a 15 minute break half way through.

Rehearsals take place at All Saints Church, Lovelace Road, West Dulwich, SE21 8JY. The church is about 5-8 minutes’ walk from West Dulwich and Tulse Hill stations and also from bus routes 2, 3, 68, 196, 201, 315, 322, 432, 468 and P13.
