Our third weekly session for Sheffield in the Spring season will take place on a different date to usual. There will be no session on Thursday 19th January – instead, this session will take place on Monday 23rd January. The session will still be at our usual venue, Sheffield Springs Academy.
Apologies for this change of date. It is to accommodate our appearance in the filming of a forthcoming episode of the BBC’s “Songs of Praise”.
We’re using a different venue for this week’s session in Sheffield, as the Springs Academy isn’t available. We’ll be at Westfield Sports Centre, Eckington Rd, Sothall, Sheffield S20 1HQ. This is just down the road from the Crystal Peaks shopping centre.
When you arrive at the school, the entrance from the road takes you into the Upper car park. Drive through this and follow the signs for the Lower car park. You can park in the Lower car park. The entrance we’ll be using is in the far corner of the Lower car park – marked as an entrance for the Leisure Centre. Once you’re inside the building, the staff at reception will guide you towards the Hall, where we’ll run the session. It is on the 1st floor, but there is a lift available for people with mobility issues.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Our usual venue of Sheffield Springs Academy isn’t available on 24th September, so we’ll be relocating for this one session. Our alternative venue this time will be the Memorial Hall at Sheffield City Hall – a great venue, and we’re thrilled to be able to have it for this session.
Access to the Memorial Hall is at the back of the City Hall. The main entrance, with the big pillars and steps, overlooking the fountain, will be used for that evening’s concert in the Irwin Mitchell Hall, so please don’t use the main entrance. There is an entrance at the side (on the right as you’re looking at City Hall from the front), which is for the Ballroom – we’re not using this entrance either! Right at the back of the building, on the curved wall, there is the entrance for the Memorial Hall – also often used for the Comedy Club, which takes place in the Memorial Hall. This will be our entrance. It is a street-level entrance, with no steps, and will be manned throughout the night by a City Hall steward. You can see this curved wall clearly on the map here.
There is limited car parking in the Holly Street car park (£1.50/hour) directly opposite the City Hall stage door, and further parking in the Carver Lane car park next to Holly Street. There are several other car parks nearby, most of which are reasonably priced – see http://en.parkopedia.co.uk/parking/sheffield_city_hall/ for more options.
If anyone has any questions or concerns about this venue change, please get in touch using the details on the Contact page of the main BeVox website.
Our sessions in Lincoln on 1st and 8th July will be in the Gym at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School, rather than the Main Hall.
We have a slight venue change for Lincoln this week (29th April). We’re still at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School, but we’re in the gym rather than the school hall. Apologies for the late notice – we’ve only been informed by the school today.
We’ll make sure that we signpost the gym so you can find it easily, but if you have any concerns, please get in touch using the contact details on our main website at www.bevox.co.uk/contact.
Just a quick note to remind people that we’re not at our usual venues in Nottingham and Sheffield this week.
We’ll be at St Mary’s Church
, Wollaton Park, Wollaton Hall Drive, Nottingham NG8 1AF. There is a reasonable amount of parking space in the church car park, and plenty of on-street parking directly outside (on Wollaton Hall Drive).
We’re at Newfield Secondary School
, Lees Hall Road, Sheffield S8 9JP. We’ll be back at the Springs for our final session on 2nd April (as well as for the BeVox Rocks rehearsal with the band on 28th March).
Hi – just a quick note to say that, although we have some snow, it’s manageable, and we WILL be running the Lincoln session tonight. If we have to cancel any sessions due to bad weather, we’ll post here, on the front page of the website, on Facebook, we’ll send an email to everyone affected, and call anyone who isn’t online. If you’re in any doubt about whether a session is going ahead, check here first – if you’re still not sure, give us a call.
After yesterday’s temporary problems with BeVox OnLine, I’m pleased to say it’s working again now. Sorry for any problems caused by its unavailability.
Hi everyone – we’re having some problems with BeVox OnLine at the moment. Although you can log in, you may find you get error messages when trying to do anything, such as signing up for the season or requesting sheet music/CDs. We’ve logged an urgent support call with the web developers, and we’re hoping it will be fixed soon – we’ll post again here when we have an estimate for when it will be back up.
In the meantime, please bear with us, and hopefully we’ll be back to full service shortly.
After being told we may need to move this week’s session due to the industrial action at Sheffield Springs Academy, we’ve now got an update – the site staff aren’t striking, so we can use the venue as normal. See you there!
