Rehearsal: Thursday 30 November

Manor Church of England Academy
Millfield Ln, Nether Poppleton, York YO26 6PA

If you’re coming out of town up the A59, turn right onto the A1327 (Northern ring road)
At the next junction (where the Wetherby Whaler is), take the 3rd exit onto Millfield Lane
If you’re coming from the A19 side, take the 2nd exit onto Millfield Lane

Swing to the left and go over the level crossing
Manor school is on the right, it’s well signposted
There’s plenty of parking in front, and more round to the right
If necessary you can park over the road in Saville’s carpark

Rehearsals: Access to the Gym building

The Mount School have decided that they can no longer let us know the code for the main red door into the Gym.

They suggest that the first person to arrive should go round to the left of the corner of the gym building, in through the door at the top of the steps, then come past the pool and open the main door from the inside. The main door then needs to be closed once everyone has arrived.

If you are one of the “usual early birds”, please can you get in touch with anyone on the committee for the code for the side door.

The code for the tennis courts remains the same.

The school does apologise for the inconvenience.

Bank Holiday Rehearsals

The rehearsals on the Bank Holiday Mondays (1 May, 29 May) are both in the DRAMA HALL at Millthorpe school.

Access is via Scarcroft Rd/ Nunthorpe Ave (I don’t know if the back entrance via Philadelphia Terr will be open).  Parking is somewhat limited; please car-share if you can.
