Entry Arrangements: Please note that nobody is available to deal with booking requests for this concert, and that booking is not possible. Unlike previous concerts in this series, tickets will be allocated on a "first-come, first-served" basis on the night, from when the doors open at 7pm. You will find me inside the church at the table on your right. Look for a sign saying "Ticket Collection for Guests of Gordon Beal's". Please try to arrive in good time, but note that you will not be allowed inside the church until 7pm. Seats are not allocated, so the earlier you take your seats, the better choice you will have. Since we are fortunate to be offered complimentary seats, the organisers would be most grateful if you could buy a programme (cost 3 pounds), perhaps to share with someone.
Refreshments: Complimentary wine (kindly sponsored by Jeroboams - http://www.jeroboams.co.uk ), orange juice and water will be available from 7pm, and also, with the addition of coffee, during the interval, and any donations will be warmly welcomed. Please note that you are not allowed to take drinks from the area where they are served, at the back of the church, into the main part of the church (so you cannot take drinks to your seats).SUMMARY OF FUTURE EVENTS (more details nearer the time, unless they have been sent already):* Thurs 27 April: complimentary tickets to hear the Halcyon Quartet at St. Peter's, Eaton Square (details above);* Thurs 4 May: complimentary tickets to hear pianist Leslie Howard at St. Peter's, Eaton Square, starting at 7.30pm (around 45 tickets will be available to "Gordon's friends", on a first-come, first-served basis from when the doors open at 7pm - arrangements as for concert on Thurs 27 April, details above);* Fri 12 May, 7.15pm/7.25pm: Ravenscourt Park tube to go to Polish Jazz Cafe POSK, basement, 238 - 246 King Street, W6 0RF, for Janet's Jazz Night (special admission price of 4 pounds for "Gordon's friends" on door, with no booking required).* Newly added events are marked with an asterisk (*)Reminder: To view previously posted events, go to the website ( http://www.gordonbeal.com ), locate the message you want and click on it.
