If you are a current St Stephen’s Choir member and have a set of robes, please bring them with you. If you don’t currently have a green St Stephen’s cassock, let me know your height and I’ll endeavour to sort one out for you.

I will bring all the music with me, so you don’t need to worry about that!

For those of us travelling from Canterbury, it would make sense to take as few cars as possible, so please meet at St Stephen’s in time to leave at 11am.

For those who asked for accommodation to be booked, we are staying at the Hatfield Travelodge. Whist 15 minutes out of St Albans, it was cheaper than staying in the city and has free overnight parking. The cost for the Saturday night is £102.00 per room which I have now paid upfront.
