The Concert

Please be in your seats by 7.20pm. We will not be filing on or off as space is too tight. We then all stand as Steve comes in before the start of the concert. I know you will appreciate how difficult it is to organise the seating in St Mary’s but Mike Topp will have done his best in what is not an easy situation.

Judy is organising a paid bar in the interval.

Folders: We will be using folders even though it will be awkward with the various pieces of music but it will look much better. Please see Jean if you need one.
