We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at the Methodist Church, High Street, Haddenham HP17 8ES between 7.30 pm and 9.30 pm with a short break for refreshments mid-evening. Click here for a map of the area. A soft (3B or 4B) pencil is essential for marking up your score.
Please remember that the time we spend at rehearsals is precious. Reading through the score during the week will help us to learn the notes and avoid making the same mistakes the following week. Also, please make sure you are in your seat, ready to begin, by 7.30 pm and try to keep the refreshment break as short as possible.
Finally, before you leave please help to stack the chairs (no more than four high), fold up and store the tables and bring down any equipment used for rehearsing in the upstairs room.
Men: at the end of split rehearsals, please help to bring downstairs the keyboard and associated equipment.

HADDENHAM The parking near Haddenham Methodist Church in the High Street is very limited. However, we have generously been allowed to use the car park at the Church of the Good Shepherd on Wednesday evenings during our rehearsals. The Church is at the corner of Crabtree Road and The Croft (see the link under Rehearsals on this page for a map. Churches are marked PW on the map).
Please use this location to park whenever possible and leave the High Street parking for those bringing bulky items to the rehearsals. If you park in the High Street, please make sure that you don't block a driveway.
THAME Parking is limited in Church Road but you can park in Priestend where there are steps up to St Mary's churchyard and footpaths to the main door of the Church. A torch is useful at night!
There are also free parking spaces along the High Street, near Cornmarket and off the Upper High Street, but check if a time limit is in force.
