Rehearsals are held in the Fairford United Church, Milton Street, Fairford GL7 4BW on Wednesdays from 7.30pm until 9.30 p.m. with a short break during the evening. There may be an extra rehearsal during the term, on a Sunday afternoon in St Mary’s Church. There will also be an additional rehearsal on the day of the concert.

Because of the relatively restricted practice time we encourage a high level of attendance at practices. Sympathetic consideration will be given to those members who are unable to meet the target of 80% attendance but who are able to demonstrate satisfactory knowledge of the music to be performed.

Performances normally take place around Easter and in the Autumn and there are between 10 and 12 weeks of rehearsal for each.
