The PO Box will definitely be very useful. smile.gif

Have just had a look for LU engineering works for the first couple of recitals (inspired by the MH engineering works), people may wish to note there is no service on the Northern Line City branch on either February 9th or March 1st (ie via London Bridge). The Charing Cross branch of the Northern Line, and the Jubilee line will run as normal (so Bermondsey station will have a normal Saturday service).

Accommodation wouldn't be a problem - the west coast mainline is a whole different issue! smile.gif

The major promotional push for these recitals will begin on Monday - I'll be heavily postering the local area then, and talking to other local organisations. smile.gif

Barry - will it be possible to purchase tickets on the door?

Since the location's convenient for me there's a good chance I'll be able to make several of these, but specifying in advance which Saturday evenings are likely to be free is more of a problem.

I'm sure I will do - Feb 9th I can't though unfortunately, just arranged to go to a gig at an even more convenient location featuring a group of five jazz saxophonists - so apologies to katyjay, but I'm afraid this one just edged ahead.

Well, Barry-Clari and I made an extensive visit to the church today. It's a beautiful building, with a superb accoustic. It's going to be a lovely place to perform in, and to hear others perform.

Is it the one which used to have a beautiful vista and now some planning numpties have allowed a load of 6-floor flats to be built right outside?

Don't recall any such flats. But then I was rather focused on my A-Z to find the church to start with, rather than looking at the buildings round it.

That sounds great. (The church, not the flats.) I'm really looking forward to seeing the building, and even more to hearing katyjay's recital on the 9th February. Although that'll mean it's only three weeks until 1st March. ph34r.gif

I've sold a few tickets - but would like more forumites in particular to see if they can come along to some of the recitals, to support their forum friends: I haven't had much in the way of forumite ticket applications yet. Tickets will be available on the door. smile.gif

MrB : it's in the old part of Rotherhithe. I think I know the church you're talking about - the recital venue isn't that church. smile.gif

Ah OK - I pass it every day on my way into London Bridge and felt it was a disaster that such a gracious (?Wren) building had been allowed to be surrounded by such monstrous carbuncles !
