Please note that parking for the Sub Rooms is in town centre car parks (these are free on Sundays except Five Valleys). You will need to arrive in your concert dress (smart, all black unless your group leader tells you otherwise!) Your group leader will confirm what you need to bring but please bring yourself, some snacks and your instrument(s) if applicable. For parents, the Sub Rooms is close to many town centre shops / cafés and there is a café in the Sub Rooms.


Looking forward to a wonderful day of music-making!
