Rehearsals

PROGRAMME FOR 2018
Most rehearsals take place in various halls in the Kings School, Ely. You can find directions by clicking here.

There is no parking for rehearsals or workshops at the Kings School Recital Hall or Hayward Theatre, except for those needing disabled access or with heavy instruments (percussion, double basses). The best place to park is the car park in Barton Road, also known as the “cathedral car park” (although it is some distance away), which is free.  This is signposted off the main Cambridge Road if you are heading north towards the centre of Ely.  Click here for a map.
