Leicester Sing for Water 2023 will take place on Sunday June 4th at 2pm in Bede Park, Leicester.
Rehearsal will be in the DMU Queen’s Building.
The organisers are going to meet at the stage which is at the junction of Western Boulevard and Mill Lane at 9.45am so that the stage manager can go over the stage directions with us. ALL SINGERS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US THERE. We will then walk 200 metres to the DMU Queens Building which is on Mill Lane. Western Boulevard will be closed to traffic for the festival. The rehearsal room is on the ground floor – in the foyer of the building, so it will be easy to find. We will have refreshments available on arrival and start the warm up and rehearsal at 10.50. If you can, please bring your own travel mug.
