The choir provides cassocks (black), surplices and whites. If you have yours at home, please be sure to bring them with you. If you haven’t done so already and this is your first time with Harsnett, please let Elizabeth Jack know your approximate height and build (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org <email@example.com>).
Please wear black shoes and dark trousers, as these may show under your cassock. Academical hoods and RSCM medals may be worn at Evensong services.
Should you be held up or need to contact us on the day, we are available on the numbers given below.

Holiday Inn Express are currently offering a Rate of £66 per room per night for single or double occupancy. All room rates are inclusive of VAT, and based on 1 or 2 people per room. Express Start breakfast is included in the rate, which consists of a continental buffet breakfast with hot options of scrambled egg, baked beans, pork Cumberland sausages and bacon. Free WiFi is also offered throughout the hotel.
Limited parking is available for regular vehicles on a first come first serve basis, and this is charged at £7.50 per vehicle per night, to be paid on arrival.
I suspect that this rate will rise as rooms are booked up but as I have been quoted a group rate of £80 per night I recommend that you book quickly!
The Hotel is approximately 15 minutes walk from the Abbey but Uber works well in Bath!
Exeter - Advanced Accommodation information
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 locationt 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.
There will not be service to the rooms but that is what we usually experience.
