The Rehearsal Orchestra is a musical charity that runs weekend and full-week orchestral courses for future professionals and serious amateurs. See www.rehearsal-orchestra.org for more details.
There is a course on Sunday 24 February which concludes with an informal play through of Janáček's Sinfonietta and Dvořák's Carnival Overture in the Henry Wood Hall. The performance is conducted by Chris Adey and will start at 6pm. The Administrator of the Orchestra has contacted TNRA and invited local residents to attend free of charge.
Those wishing to attend should arrive by 5.50pm.The play through is expected to finish at 7pm. Although there is no charge on the door, the Orchestra would be grateful for donations made on the way out afterwards.
Calling all children! Come and toss pancakes in Merrick Square! (Races for adults too)
Come to the back of Merrick Square as soon as you can after 4pm with your parent/carer, a pan and a pancake. Be prepared to race right round the square on the pavement, tossing your pancake at every lamp post as you go.
Just turn up - no tickets are required and everything is free of charge. However, so we have an idea of numbers, it would be helpful if parents/carers could let us know in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org how many children they will be bringing.
