OUR VENUE & CONCERT

We will be based in the magnificent and resonant St Andrew's church, Surbiton, which has recently been tastefully restored and modernised. It is within easy walking distance of the many local cafes and interesting shops.

This is the fifth Hidden Gems trip, and we've created some lovely pieces over the years. So, as well as some new songs, we are taking this opportunity to revive and reimagine some of our old favourites in a concert using visuals, lighting and soloists.

WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED

Travel to Surbiton  - easily accessible by road or train. If you arrive by train you will be passing through one of the most remarkable examples of Art Deco architecture in the country. We may even have a song about it!

Accommodation - the area is well served with places to stay and we have some suggestions to help you find somewhere suitable.

Meals - our singing venue is centrally located within easy reach of many cafes and restaurants.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

There will be six rousing singing sessions spread over the weekend, to learn the arrangements and help establish good vocal habits and singing technique. Refreshments will be provided during the breaks.

There will be two online teaching sessions in advance of the weekend, to introduce the material afresh.

And as well as an exciting concert with professional soloists on Sunday evening, there will also be a unique Hidden Gems walking tour taking in Surbiton, Kingston and the river; and lots of time to explore the area.  We hope you will come to see leafy suburbia in a whole new light!
