Lewes Carols 5th December - final (nearly!) arrangements

We currently have 7 singers who have expressed interest.  The hope / aim is for at least 10 - 12 so to allow for last minute sickness / cancellation, more are very welcome.  The TIC needs to know fairly soon so please note the confirmation deadline is midnight on Sunday 24th November (see below for contact details).

DATE: Thursday 5th December

TIME(S): 6:30pm and / or 7:30pm (flexible and at our discretion, to be confirmed once definite singers and their availability known)

VENUE: At / in / near Lewes Tourist Information Centre, top of Station Street, on the NE corner of the crossroads (Fisher Street / High Street).  The TIC stocks our CD so this is a good opportunity to promote it and also to drum up interest in future events and possibly recruit some new Lewes singers.

1. On Sussex Hills (Hilaire Belloc) 
2. Shepherd of the Downs (Traditional) 
3. Thousands Or More (Copper Family) 
4. Sussex Mummers Carol (When Righteous Joseph Wedded Was)

4-6  from our carols repertoire, lyrics are on the carols song sheet and sheet music can be sent to you if requested. 
7-8  for the public to join in. 

RUNTHROUGH: There will be a runthrough the previous day, Wednesday 4 December, at the Worthing local session at the Beechwood Hall Hotel, Wykeham Road, Worthing, West Sussex BN11 4JD at 7:30 - 9:45pm.  If necessary there may be a runthrough elsewhere, possibly in Brighton, the previous week.    

CONFIRMATION:  please confirm you'll be there by e-mailing / texting Tina Cox at tcox@ntlworld.com (07795 335646).  Cut-off date / time is midnight on Sunday 24th November.  Please let me have definite confirmation even if you have already spoken to me recently.  Could you also say whether you know or are willing to sing the harmonies and if so for which songs? 

I look forward to hearing from you!

Tina
