SeaGreen Singers

Womens International Festival

Tuesday, 8th March
in the Oxford Town Hall on Women's Day, Tuesday March 8th.

We have revised the programme to incorporate student art performances so sgs has a 20 minute slot around 6:45-7:05pm.
The event will be in the Main Hall of the Town Hall. The room will be laid out in ten tables & there will be refreshments available.

We'll encourage the audience to be seated during performances but expect a certain amount of milling around esp. as some people will be arriving from work for the main panel event which directly follows your singing. You'll have the option of using a higher or a lower stage - or none if you prefer - and a PA system.

Audience participation is very welcome - particularly warming everyone up before the discussion starts!

Town hall - Don't forget to bring your waistcoat! We will meet in the Town Hall at 5.45pm.
