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.

If travelling by train book to Haymarket which is within 15 minutes walk of Bainfield. The station appears on train booking websites just as Haymarket - not Edinburgh Haymarket! I think it is the Aberdeen trains that progress to Haymarket from Waverley.
If you are flying to Edinburgh then on exiting the Terminal building look for Bus Stand F. Take the Skylink 300 service and alight at Fountainbridge. Bainfield accommodation is across the road!
