Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings. We set up from about 19:15, tea and coffee is served at 19:30, and we start promptly at 19:45, finishing at 21:30.

We have three terms a year, in line with Merton's academic term dates (see below). We do not have official rehearsals on bank holidays, but sometimes hold social events instead. We sometimes have extra rehearsals before big events.

Our current fees are £40 per term standard rate, with a reduced rate of £20 available at the discretion of the Chair for those who would have difficulty paying the full amount, and £4 per rehearsal for guests. Fees are due at the first rehearsal of term; there is a £5 per week additional fee for members attending without paying (unless prior agreement has been obtained from the Chair). Preferred method of payment is by bank transfer, but can also be made by cheque (payable to Colliers Wood Chorus) or cash (exact change please).

Newcomers are welcome to try us out free for one week, and can then join immediately, or when we have a space if there is a waiting list.
