Start of concert: line up in the Barbour Room

To access the Sage Building from 08:50, please use the public East or West Doors onto the main concourse (not the stage door at the back).
The Barbour Room will not be locked during the rehearsal or performance. You are therefore asked to leave your coats in the cloakroom downstairs near the Welcome Desk at the West Door, thus freeing the Barbour Room of clutter.
The cloakroom will be open from 8:50 till 10:00 and again from 13:00 onwards. It will close at 18:00, so please collect your coats etc. straight after the performance and take them up to the Barbour Room for the post-
The Barbour Room will be opened at the interval for those wishing to get water, use the toilets etc. I suggest, therefore, that you leave your water bottles in the Barbour Room … and there should be the chilled-
We will have the use of the small Artists’ Dining Room, near the Barbour Room, as a locked room for valuables. I will arrange for this to be open before the concert (time to be confirmed) so that people can leave smaller items and valuables that they would not wish to leave in the Barbour Room (ie. handbags, purses, wallets, phones, briefcases etc., not coats). Once this is locked, it will not be opened again until after the concert (ie. not at the interval). Valuables may also be left in the cloakroom downstairs, which will be attended when open ... and will be open during the interval.
It would be appreciated if you could avoid, if possible, taking anything other than your music into the hall for the concert.
Please note that all items, wherever they may be placed, are at your own risk.
The usual £4 standard all-
The usual 10% discount tickets for use in the cafe and bars will be available in the Barbour Room.
Please make sure these are in silent mode or switched off for both rehearsal and concert.
It would be greatly appreciated if you would not use your phone during the rehearsal.
Hopefully these arrangements will make things easy and hassle-
Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation.
