Event: Away day 2015 (Our annual Away day)
Saturday 18th July 2015 at 9:00am, Winchester and Portsmouth
Our annual Away days are important and very popular events in our calendar. They provide us with the opportunity for an enjoyable, informal and relaxed day out together and to perform concerts in less familiar surroundings and to audiences who don't know us. Destinations for recent Away days have included Southwold, Whitstable, Bury St Edmunds,Wilton, Bath and numerous other interesting places.
Typically, we depart from Harrow at about 9.00am in a luxury coach, stopping for morning coffee along the way. We usually organise some sort of optional sight-seeing or other activity before partaking of a leisurely 3-course lunch together and then continuing the journey to our chosen concert destination. Upon arrival, and after settling in, we usually hold a rehearsal which is followed by a brief period of free time before we prepare for and perform the evening concert. After the concert, if time permits, we may well adjourn to a local pub before re-boarding the coach and returning to Harrow.
For the 2014/2015 season our Away day will be to Portsmouth where we will perform in the famous Cathedal. On the way, the opportunity will be available to visit Jane Austen's house in Chawton, or to undertake a guided tour of Winchester Cathedral. Our lunch will be in the beautfiful setting of the Royal Winchester Golf Club. Please click here for for more details, itinerary and timings.
The concert programme will be the same as for our Summer Concert - ie Gloria by Vivaldi and In Windsor Forest by Vaughan Williams. For more details of the concert itself, please follow this link.
