Coronavirus update – Choir Rehearsals for Summer term 2022
Weekly choir rehearsals have returned to our usual 2 hour sessions starting at 7.30pm.
The external doors of the hall will remain open to aid ventilation and members are asked to wear masks when you arrive/leave and to keep them on until you are seated in the hall. They can then be removed if you wish. Seating will remain widely spaced for the time being.
Thinking of joining? We’d love to see you!
Here’s all the information you need:
When: The choir meets on Wednesday evenings 7.30-9.30pm, term time only.
Come along at 7.20pm for a free taster session on any Wednesday. Ask to speak to one of our friendly committee members who will show you the ropes.
Sessions start at 7.30pm prompt so please arrive in good time.
If, after that, you’d like to join the choir, we’ll ask you to bring payment the following week for the remainder of that term.

*Please note, our concessionary rate is aimed at people on very low incomes. The rate is there for people whose sole income is state benefit, or pensioners who only receive a state pension and no other income. The rate is also available for full time students and under 18’s. We rely 100% on our membership fees to cover our costs.
We do not accept one off payments for attending odd sessions throughout each term, however, we do run a drop-in card system – details are available on request.
We accept payment by cheque, cash or online banking. Please subscribe to obtain the bank details from our ‘members’ area’.
Fees example: a term of 14 weeks will cost a total of £84 and will be required to be paid in advance of that term. Concessions* run at £4 per session and using the same example above, a total of £56 will be required to be paid in advance.
Where we meet: we practice at St Werburgh’s Primary School, James Street, St Werburgh’s, Bristol, BS2 9US. Click here for location (St Werburgh’s Park Nursery and School on the map).
PLEASE NOTE: The primary school is split over two sites that are close to each other. The one we rehearse in is ON James Street and the car park entrance is across the road from the ‘Up and Over’ Garage door shop.
Come in via the entrance from the car park, go straight ahead and then through the double doors on the left into the hall. If you arrive late and the front doors are locked ring the bell on the left hand outer door and someone will come and let you in. If we are singing we may not hear the bell, but persevere!
There are bike racks outside the main door, a small car park in front of the school and plenty of free on-street parking. The hall, toilets and car parking are fully accessible. Please note that anyone using the car park does so at their own risk. Please contact us if you need further information.
