We will be using the Novello edition – in English. Either the New Novello or older Novello editions will be fine, but NOT the old blue copies with German words! If you have your own copy, please check carefully that you have the correct edition; otherwise you can hire a copy from us for just £3.00. You are strongly advised to order a hire copy in advance if you need one as we cannot guarantee that copies will be available on the day if not pre-ordered. It is essential that everyone has the same edition otherwise valuable time will be wasted on the day.

Toilet facilities are available at the church.

Tickets are £20.00 for singers; £5.00 for Audience members; and £5.00 for Students or those in full-time education (singing or audience).

Book online (preferred) by clicking on “Order Tickets Now”, or telephone The Bach Choir Ticket Office on 020 7127 9114. Please note that the Paypal guest checkout option may not be available when using a mobile or tablet.

Teas, coffees, bottled water and biscuits will be available for purchase on the day. For lunches, there are plenty of local cafes nearby, serving a wide range of food and drink; alternatively singers are welcome to bring packed lunches and eat them in the church.
