Caron.. it's a different Church this year. Try St. John's Waterloo via something like Google and see if they have disabled access. I am sorry I am not involved this year...
Is the coach from Horsham going to be disabled-friendly this year, too.. I hope so.
Please let me know how this pans out, in case I get involved again in the future.

I've emailed the CHA Office, to see if they can advise with answers to the questions raised. Having said that though, Wendy's on her own at the moment so the answer may not be immediate.

I don't think there's going to be a coach from Horsham this year..... will keep you posted.

Re. the time / date, this isn't the choice of the governors. The arrangements are made by the CHA, taking into account the availability of suitable venues. However, an effort is made to ensure that the date coincides with a London meeting of the Court of Governors, to enable those who wish to attend the concert to do so easily.

They are a rather integral part of the CH community, after all.

Waterloo - super. For those of you who are scared of coming South of the River - it's actually very convenient to get to. It's right behind the National Theatre with loads of nice restaurants et c nearby for dinner afterwards.

Can I dare to recommend the Kings Arms http://www.pubs.com/pub_details.cfm?ID=201 as a jolly nice convenient pub... I think I even saw Chris Cullen there once (although I could be mistaken)

I've managed to swing the day off this year - where do I sign up to sing?

Oops - I might be being too optimistic about singing in the carol concert as now looks like we'll be moving house that week ... maybe.... I daren't speak too soon - we've been trying to move for *months*.

I have posted an event up on Facebook for the concert now and currently, 212 Old Blues have been invited so hopefully that will help numbers etc...

FYI, tickets will also be available on the door, so it's not too late to come along and encourage your friends/family etc. to come along too.
