Refreshments

The school will provide hot water and milk, but you will need to bring your own cup and flavour for your hot water. 


Subscription costs:

  • Full: One annual payment of £185 OR two installments of £95, due September & February.
  • Concession: One annual payment of £50 OR two installments of £27, due September & February.

Full information about who qualifies for concessions can be found in our membership policy).

The fees cover the costs of the tuition, venue hire and musical scores. Occasionally we rent scores, for which we ask members for a fully-refundable deposit. Another cost for members is a one-off £5 purchase of a reusable black folder for our concerts.

Concerts, especially in trendy Hackney, are extortionately expensive to put on. We encourage our members to pay their subs on time and sell as many tickets as possible to support the choir (or buy them as gifts for friends and family ).
