Food and Accommodation

Food

All meals are provided during the weekend and are inclusive with the accommodation, if you book a residential package. They are served in the college dining hall which has cafeteria style service and caters for all dietary requirements. Light refreshments; tea, coffee etc are also provided during breaks in between rehearsals. To allow for arrivals during the evening on Friday, a buffet will be provided in the bar area along with a complimentary drink.

ACCOMMODATION

Accommodation is all of an excellent standard, in modern boarding houses located close to the main school. Both single and twin rooms are available and are en-suite with shower, basin and toilet. Each house has a comfortable seating area and tea and coffee making facilities.

The facilities at Ellesmere College are second to none. Rehearsals take place in the fabulous grand hall known as ‘Big School’. This stunning wood-panelled hall with hammer beam ceiling is home of a magnificent Schulze Organ, one of only six in the country. There are class rooms located conveniently near by, which are available for individual and ensemble work and there is a break out area with seating for refreshments during the day and a fully stocked bar in the evening.

Leisure facilities are also excellent. The 25 metre indoor pool is the perfect place for a leisurely swim and there is also a fitness centre and weights room, indoor and outdoor tennis courts and a nine hole golf course.

This is an example schedule, a confirmed timetable will be provided prior to arrival at the event
