Accessibility of venues:
All of our venues are wheelchair or level accessible with accessible toilets. If you have any queries or accessibility accommodations please email firstname.lastname@example.org before the event.
To submit songs for the composium please email email@example.com before the 15th of October. We may not be able to sing every song depending on the number submitted, but we will hopefully manage one per composer especially those present at the singing.
Bring & Share Lunch, Saturday:
If you are able, please bring a pot luck style dish to share for our dinner on the grounds on Saturday, complete with serving utensils if possible.
As with last year we will be asking everyone to take a lateral flow test before they attend each singing and demonstrate evidence of the negative test (e.g. a photograph taken at the time suggested by the test manufacturer) before entering the building. In order to protect other singers please do not attend the singing if you have symptoms of any respiratory illness, or have been in contact with someone who has had Covid in the previous 10 days. Masks are not required, but singers who wish to use one, or sit away from the group or near a source of ventilation are welcome to do so. If you test positive for Covid in the days after the singing please contact our email address so that we can anonymously let others who have attended know so that they can mitigate further risk if needed.
