Rehearsals

From September 2021, all regular rehearsals will take place on Tuesday evenings at Shirley Methodist Church, 257 Stratford Road, Shirley, B90 3AL  between 19:30 and 21:45. Please arrive in good time, and always bring your own stand – there are no stands at the venue.

Rehearsal Schedule

Concert Day, 29 January 2022 – St Philip’s Church, Dorridge, B93 8DX

Rehearsal 10:30 – 13:30, concert 15:30

PARKING – Please allow priority at the front of the church to those with mobility issues and heavy instruments.

The Chiltern Railway car park at the back of the church IS free on a Sat and Sun (the notices are not clear on this) so won’t be a problem for the concert.

The best alternative if the car park is full is for people to park on Manor Road (there are a few spaces outside the church and up the road a bit) or on Westfield Close opposite or Cawdon Grove a bit higher up – but PLEASE could people make sure they park sensibly, not across drives or on both sides of the road (Westfield and Cawdon are not that wide)
