Please wear warm clothes with white  cream,  gold or silver as your top layer! If you don’t have white for your bottom half then please wear black or grey. We have some tabards and extras for those that don’t have any white.   You may want to wear a white or cream bobble hat too.  though we do have some white fey head bands to lend.
On the performance days there will be a marquee on site where you can put your belongings though this will still be at your own risk so please avoid bringing valuables with you. There will be hot drinks available in the marquee and a snack between the two performances. 
Before those dates we also have some rehearsals that we would love you to attend if possible. The choir is acting as the angels in heaven so you are integral to the whole performance and the more you know in advance the better it will be for you and for us. The times for everything are below and we’ve attached some location maps.   It is not essential to attend any rehearsals but would be useful
