I hereby declare the online Box Office for our Autumn Concert OPEN!  You can view the poster here on our website.

Now’s the time to start getting the date in the diaries of your nearest and dearest and buy tickets.  We will of course be selling them at choir from 5th September, but if you can sort your tickets out earlier it would be better.   Seats will be available on a first come, first served basis (i.e. not numbered) as per last year.  If you’d like to buy tickets just follow the link which is all over our website and also here for your convenience:

Book now

Choir rehearsals for this concert, picking up from where we left off in July, will start on Wednesday 5th September.  The running order will be based on our Summer Tour programme – TBC.

In terms of publicity, the concert is now an Event on our Facebook page (please share it to all your Facebook Friends) and posters will be out shortly.  Please contact Jeannie if you can help with poster distribution in and around Petworth – we really need your help!

Dress code for our Autumn Concert is just as on Tour, i.e. slightly more relaxed, but the general rule of looking smart and professional obviously still applies!


  • Black dress or skirt no shorter than knee-length OR Black trousers
  • Black top with shoulders covered (short sleeves are OK)
  • Black shoes (tights optional)
  • Discreet jewellery


  • Black shirt
  • Black trousers

We will have some Concert Notes available over the next few weeks.
