Dear Parents and Players
MYMS is organising an exciting visit to the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 22 April 2018 to see the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra play in the matinee performance at 3:00 pm of their Film Music Gala. Please see the details of the concert and the music being played at the bottom of this email.
It will be a splendid concert and we have negotiated a discounted price, which makes it tremendous value.
Tickets for the trip are:
Students [or school-age siblings] – £15 per person, including coach and concert;
Parents – £20 per person, including coach and concert.
We have provisionally booked 102 seats at the Royal Albert Hall and two 51-seater coaches. *
Students can book places to go to the concert on their own – there will be a team of MYMS supervisors to chaperone them. Family groups are also encouraged if you want to make it a family day out.
Accurate timings will be confirmed nearer to the concert date. It is likely that we shall meet in Huntsman Lane [outside Invicta GS] at 12:00 noon and return at approximately 7:30 pm.
The application form – which includes the necessary boxes for consent and health information – is attached MYMS – Royal Albert Hall Trip 22 April 2018 – Consent & Health Form. Please complete an individual form for each student. Please note, each form has two pages to complete.
On this occasion, we would like payment to be made by cheque [payable to MYMS], rather than by electronic transfer. If that poses a problem, payment can be made by cash – please hand any cash payments to me personally. Envelopes can either be handed in at MYMS or posted to my home at Richard Gretton, 16 Sycamore Crescent, Allington, Maidstone, ME16 0AG.
Tickets will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
Deadline date: the final deadline is the Friday after half term [Friday 23 February 2018]. Of course, applications can be posted to my home address during half term.
[* Note: Ideally, the whole party will travel on the two coaches but special arrangements can be made for family groups to purchase just concert tickets if they wish to travel separately to the Royal Albert Hall.]
The concert is being presented by Tommy Pearson, who used to play at MYMS. I’m sure that he will give us a mention at some stage in the concert when he knows there is a large party from MYMS in the audience…..
All best wishes
