Accommodation

Negotiations for accommodation in Exeter in August 2019 have now been completed.

We will be staying at The Printworks, Western Way, Exeter EX1 2ZT.

This accommodation is 5 years old. It has a number of communal areas with soft drink and snack vending machines as well as a pool table. There is also an on site gym which will be available to us and also a laundry room.

The accommodation is a 12 minute walk from the Cathedral precincts - providing you don't stop to shop!

The cost for up to 8 nights in a single en-suiute room will be £225 to include provisions for continental breakfast, tea and coffee.

If possible and practicable I would recommend travelling to Exeter by train. This is because this being a city centre location there is no car parking. There are two public car parks near the accommodation at a cost of £10 per day. These can be paid for by phone for consecutive days, meaning you could pay for the whole week in one go rather than having to bother to pay each day.

General info

Our dumb day (the one day in the week when we do not sing) is likely to be Friday. We will confirm in due course.

All music will be provided on the day. You will be expected to have learnt music made available in advance of the visit. No time in the rehearsal will be given to note-bashing this music. We will spend more time looking at music introduced on the day. We regret that copyright does not always allow us to make all music available beforehand.

Cassocks and surplices will be provided on the day (if you are new, please send your approx height and build to Elizabeth at secretary@harsnettchoir.org).

Please wear quiet black shoes and black socks/tights as these might show under your cassock.

We do not limit the number of attendees for residential weeks.
