Autumn Term 2019


Rehearsals will normally be at the Stevenage Music Centre (click on link for Satellite image). For those using SatNavs to get there the post code is SG2 0HS. The address is Mobbsbury Way and is adjacent to the Timebridge Community Centre.

Please note: The point marked "ENTER HERE" is the entry to the Car park. There's lots of parking there, just leave the car and walk to reception and there will be someone there who can guide you to the auditorium where we rehearse.
See you there.......
