Refund policy

Places are limited in many of our venues and we are sorry to say we are therefore unable to offer a refund if you are no longer able to attend a session that you have booked in advance.

Food and drink

We will provide free tea, coffee and biscuits through the day.

Please note that we don't provide lunch. There are often places to have lunch near our venues, or you can bring a picnic lunch. (Please note some venues may not allow food or drink in the performance space).

Personal belongings

Please look after your personal belongings and keep your personal possessions with you. Do not leave any valuable items unattended. We have absolutely no reason to suspect any problems, but we are aware, based on past experience, that bag thieves do sadly operate in popular venues.

Are children welcome?

We love to welcome children to Singing Saturdays. Children need to be able to concentrate fully and listen and repeat and enjoy it. This usually means that it's suitable for 11-12 years plus as a rough guideline, but it depends on the child and you know them best. We are keen that they participate fully and have as much fun as the grown-ups do. Children under the age of 18 should be accompagnied by a legal guardian.
