Event description

Description


London's Favourite Night of Renaissance Motets & Booze!™ has finally packed away its shorts & sandals and is ready for another season of old skool pub-singing!

The first booking period goes live at 5pm on Friday September 14th, with more spaces released at 9am on Saturday September 15th, so everyone should be in with a chance of getting a space.

Please read the FAQs below before registering.

FAQs


Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Over 18s only, please. Not because it's rude (although to be fair some of our madrigals can be a bit racy) but because it's in a pub.


Do I need to be able to read music to take part?

You do need to be a reasonably confident sight singer to get the most out of the evening. However, anyone who just wants to come along to listen and socialise is also very welcome to book one of the non-singing spaces.

Do you provide print-outs of the scores?

No, only the links to the scores, which will be e-mailed to you 48 hours before the event; you need to print out the pages yourself or better yet, save them to a tablet and do the planet a favour.


My voice section appears to be sold out; why is that and can I just book in under another section?

Some voices appear to be extremely attracted to the idea of drinking while singing (yes, altos, we are indeed looking at you), which means that they get booked up first. However, it's really important that we keep the right balance of voices on the night so please do not book another voice part or a non-singing space if your voice section is not available.

Instead, join the waiting list; we'll do our best to find you a space nearer the time.

How does the waiting list work?

If your voice part is sold out, you can register on the waiting list but you must state whether you want a soprano, alto, tenor, bass or non-singing spot after your surname; if you don't you won't be able to take a space if/when it becomes available. The waiting list is limited to 10 names; once it's full it will show as 'sold out' and no more names can be added.

Please note: joining the waiting list does not guarantee you a place at the session.

Is the venue wheelchair accessible?

The private room at the Horse and Stables is on the first floor with no lift and so regrettably the event is not suitable for people who are unable to use stairs. Please also note that the lighting in the venue is quite dim so please bring a pen-torch if you are concerned.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Tube, rail, bus, bicycle, on foot - see polyphonydownthepub.com or tfl.gov.uk for details.

Where can I find out more?

See https://polyphonydownthepub.com/about/ for all the answers you could ever wish for.
