MidWinter Turning

Venue

St Bride’s Community Centre, 10 Orwell Terrace, Edinburgh EH11 2DZ

Times

We’ll be rehearsing at St Bride’s from mid-day.

Doors will open to the public at 3.30pm.

The concert will be starting promptly at 4pm. Due to the nature of the performance, latecomers will be admitted at the discretion of the stewards. It would be helpful if you pass on to the people who bought tickets through you to make sure they are there before 4pm.

The performance will be in 2 halves (approx 45 minutes each).

The bar will remain open until 6.30pm

Tickets
The remaining tickets will be available on the door on Sunday from 3.30pm

What to wear

Wear black trousers/skirt/ shoes, and a single coloured top (no logos or patterns please!).  Please try to match colours as closely as you can to the colours swatches or the beautiful lanterns in the photos below, that we’ll have on the stage at the concert. Try to avoid anything that is very pale as it tends to stand out amongst the colours. Thanks!

 

Rehearsal

When we’re rehearsing/warming up before the concert Ali needs a clear head to be able to focus on her preparations for the performance. You can really help her with this by directing any questions you have on the day to Ros rather than Ali.

Food

Please bring whatever food you need with you. We won’t have access to a kitchen during the day, so you may also want to bring a flask with a hot drink. There is unlikely to be enough time to leave the building to get food.

Bar

The bar at St Bride’s will be open when the door opens for the concert at 3.30, and will stay open until 6.30pm.

SongTribe trip to Wiston Lodge

Thursday 27th – Monday 31st August 2020

Wiston lodge, Millrigg Road, Wiston, Biggar ML12 6HT

This is a residential break for choir members, with Ali leading some singing workshops. Undoubtedly it will , as usual, include many other shenanegans! It’s a great opportunity to get to know other choir members

We’ll be staying in the lodge, camping in the grounds, or sleeping in cabins within the grounds of the lodge. For anyone who would prefer to organise their own accommodation nearby, there will be an option to pay a day rate, and enjoy all of the daytime activities/meals. Wiston Lodge has a catering team, so for this trip we won’t need to do any cooking.
