Confirmation of SDFS’ Plans to Sing at The “AldingBoom” Festival

Saturday 2nd July at the Aldingbourne Country Centre

We are pleased to say enough singers have volunteered for this event to go ahead, so arrangements for the SDFS to sing two sets on the “Woodland stage” at the Centre have been confirmed. Our singing times are now 1.00pm and 4.00pm – so we need to assemble there by 12.45 and 3.45pm at the latest please. Please find the song sets listed below.

Entry to the Festival is free to performers, so if you have let us know you are coming then your name will already be on a list for the gatekeepers to check you in when you arrive. (If you want to sing but haven’t let us know, you can still have your name added to a “late additions” list next week by contacting me via the SDFS email address, asap please.)

Also use the SDFS email address for any queries about the event in advance – but, if needed, use contact number: 07751 479383 on the day.

Looking forward to a good sing and a lovely day!

Further notes (copied over from the Proposed Events page):

We have been invited to sing at the “AldingBOOM” one day music festival. The festival is a charity fundraising event organised each year by The Aldingbourne Trust, “L’Arche” and the Chichester Music Academy to celebrate music, performers of all abilities, their families and the Summer! A computer search using “Aldingboom” or “the Aldingbourne Trust” will access more information about the charities, the Centre and the festival. Here are a few links:
There will be front of stage microphones set up for use if we need them, depending on conditions, and these will be managed for us by the festival staff. Emily has kindly offered to lead our singing on the day.

Dress code suggested – the blue and/or greens we usually go for but with maybe a splash of white cloud, wildflower pink or sunshine gold to reflect the summer countryside (with hopefully no grey skies evident on the day!).

The Festival is open from 11.00am until 7.00pm and the usual entry charge will be waived for performers. It sounds like it will be a lovely day in a lovely setting – and for a good cause.
