We are very happy to coming back inside to Ashcombe School as the nights draw in. We will learn some lovely autumnal and wintery songs and end the term with a Christmas party. The room has good acoustics so we can really enjoy hearing our beautiful harmonies together again. Doors and windows will remain open for ventilation so do bring warm clothing!

We will be following current Covid guidelines for singing indoors so please have a look at our Inclusivity Agreement before booking (it has changed a bit since last year)
