A reminder of 19th May rehearsal - usual place, usual time.
Also, please remember your subs (now £25) if you've not paid, and bring a pen to sign off the new data consent forms (if you didn't manage to do this last rehearsal).
There is a new "apologies sheet" for Sept-Dec which will be with the current one. We're going to try a new approach of putting the sheet on/by the coffee counter so you can update it as you queue at the break: we'll see how that goes.
