 The theatre will be locked at 6.00 p.m. and anything left behind may either be collected on Sunday 3rd August 10.00 – 11.00 a.m., or posted with the usual p&p charges.

Facilities: 
For refreshments before the concert, there are a number of hotels, cafes and pubs within walking distance of St Chad’s.  There are limited toilet facilities in St Chad’s; during the comfort break the choirs will use those within the church and the audience will be asked to use the facilities in the Church Hall.

Following the concert: 
We will ask parents to remain seated whilst their children go to the Church Hall prior to leaving.

Choir members will be free to leave in the following order –

1. Yellow Choir members and Blue and Green Choir boys will collect their remaining personal possessions from the Church Hall and leave straight away.
2.  Following their departure, Blue and Green Choir girls will then change out of their uniforms in the Church Hall and collect their remaining possessions.

As this will be a public concert, all parents will be asked to sign out their children before leaving St Chad’s.  Choir members will return to St Chad’s when they are ready to leave, and will meet their parents inside the church.  Please do not take your child without signing him/her out, as this will cause confusion and concern.
