No Sheffield session 18th October

Due to unavailability of our usual venue, we won’t be running a session in Sheffield this week (18th October). We will add an extra session at the end of the season instead, so now the final standard session of the season will be on 6th December, with our end-of-season performance on 13th December. Please accept our sincere apologies for any problems this causes. Sheffield singers would be very welcome to join us in any of our other areas this week (Nottingham tonight, Barnsley on Wednesday). If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please get in touch via the Contact Us page.

Change of venue, consultation on dress code

Tuesday’s Nottingham session (2nd October) will be at West Bridgford Methodist Church, Musters Road, NG2 7PQ. Parking is difficult at this venue – please allow plenty of time to get there and get parked up!

In response to feedback from singers and audience members alike, we have been reviewing our dress code for performances. We’ve come up with a couple of possible alternatives, and we’d like feedback from our singers and audience members on the new proposals. If you’d like to have your say, follow the link to BeVox Dress Code Consultation.

Tickets on sale

We’re using an online ticketing system to sell tickets for any of our performances that are ticketed. Most performances we do aren’t ticketed, as they’re out in the community and so are free, but for more formal concerts, such as “Voices at the Cathedral” on 13th July, or “BeVox at Buxton with Brass” on 8th December, we’ll be selling tickets. The link you need is bevox.eventbrite.com, and there you’ll find details of all concerts we’re currently planning that require tickets. PLEASE NOTE – this doesn’t include events that we’re not producing ourselves, as tickets for these will be sold by the event organisers – we’ll include information about how to buy tickets for these kind of events on the Performances page.

For “Voices at the Cathedral”, you can also buy tickets in person at the Cathedral itself – just call in to their office and they’ll be happy to help!

One last thing – a quick reminder to the Nottingham group – we’re at West Bridgford Methodist Church tonight, not the school. See you there!

Another venue change

We will be at West Bridgford Methodist Church again next week for our Nottingham session – that’s the one on Tuesday 24th January. Should be back to The Becket School the following week, 31st January. Apologies for these continued issues with the venue – we are working to prevent further problems in the future.

Change of venue

It’s been a great start to the Spring season. Our first sessions in Sheffield, Wakefield and Nottingham have been great fun, and it’s lovely to see new recruits in each area. We’re looking forward to Barnsley’s first session of 2012 tonight.

Next week, our Nottingham session will temporarily move to a different venue. The Becket School isn’t available, so instead we will be at West Bridgford Methodist Church, on the junction of Musters Road and Patrick Road – the post code there is NG2 7PQ, and there’s a map here. Parking can be a bit of a nightmare, as it’s on-street only, and it gets quite busy – you may need to park a distance away and then walk down. Please accept our apologies for this temporary change of venue.

Temporary venue change in Nottingham

We had a call from The Becket School this afternoon, letting us know that we’re not able to use the school for our session THIS TUESDAY, 4th October. We’ve secured an alternative venue, so for this coming week only, we’ll be at the West Bridgford Methodist Church on Musters Road (at the junction with Patrick Road). There’s a link to the alternative venue on Google Maps here: West Bridgford Methodist Church

Apologies for the late notice – this announcement is going out via email to all Nottingham singers, and will be on our Facebook and Twitter pages too.

Launch of BeVox Barnsley, and change of venue for Wakefield

We’re very pleased to announce the details for our newest group, based in Barnsley. Our taster session for this group is on Wednesday 27th April, from 7pm until 9pm, at Staincross Methodist Church, Blacker Road, Mapplewell, Barnsley S75 6BP. We then start our regularly weekly sessions on Wednesday 11th May (a fortnight after the taster). If you are interested in joining us in Barnsley, or in any of our other groups, please get in touch using the “Contact us” link on the right, and we’ll see you soon.

Our Wakefield group is moving. We’ve been very well looked after at St Andrew’s Church, and we hope to continue running weekend workshops there and supporting their work in the community. From the Summer season, we’ll be meeting at Sandal Methodist Church instead, which is at 253 Barnsley Road, Wakefield WF1 5NU. Please spread the word and get your friends, family and colleagues to come and join us – everyone’s welcome!
