Can I sit with my friend?

9 January 2014

Maybe, although it would only be possible if your friend sings the same part as you. The safest thing is to book together. Alternatively, write to PO Box 4211, Bath BA1 0HJ (email members@trbc.co.uk) asking to be seated together. Please be sure the other person has booked, and tell us who made their booking – these requests sometimes cause us much head scratching. We need to know the surnames and postcodes of the people who actually made the booking(s). However, there is one situation in which we will not be able to comply with your request to sit you with a friend. That occurs with female voices when the first booking has arrived early enough to be seated in the Stalls, and the subsequent request arrives after the Stalls are full. We do not consider it fair to push someone out of the Stalls in order to join your later booking with your friend’s early one. We may offer you the option of moving your friend(s) out of the Stalls so they can sit with you. Surprisingly, this option is not often taken up!
