We normally have three or four concerts each season: in November, a Christmas concert in December, March/April and June.
In November 2015 our Centenary concert was held in St. George’s Church, Jesmond. This November we returned to the Kings’ Hall on Saturday 26 November. The Christmas concert took place in Jesmond United Reform Church on 15 December.
In recent years we have performed our March/April concert in Sage Gateshead and in 2017 this took place on Saturday 18 March.
The summer concert is often in another venue by arrangement and next summer it will take place in Hexham Abbey on Saturday 10 June.
If you are unable to attend a pre-concert rehearsal please let the concert manager know so that a space can be saved for you.
This will be advised and confirmed before each concert, but normally:
Ladies: long black dress, or black top with long black skirt or trousers, black tights, black shoes. Dress or top should preferably have long sleeves, but at least elbow-length.
Men: black open-necked shirt, black trousers, black socks, black shoes.
Black folders must be used to hold music during performances. A plain black paper cover is acceptable (no glossy paper or shiny plastic).
In every case please ensure that black is not charcoal grey.
Please do not bring water into the concert – fine at the rehearsal.
No scent/perfume etc.
Tickets sales are our main source of income, and it is important that members sell as many tickets as they can. These are available from the line reps and from the Tickets page of this site (except for performances in Sage Gateshead when Sage will deal with the non line rep enquiries).
