We rehearse on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm in the Village Hall at Rowhedge.

If you would like to come along or if you need further directions to those below, please contact us.

NB. Rehearsals do not take place between Christmas and New Year or during August.

Directions A12 (North) to Rowhedge

Take the first turn-off for Colchester (sign posted A120 for Harwich). First turning on the roundabout (I think) past the BMW garage on the left. Follow this road past more garages, traffic lights and then straight over at the roundabout (this is Ipswich Road). Watch out for a speed camera and a few padestrian crossings. At the double roundabout at the end you need to go straight ahead of you which I think means left on the first roundabout and second exit on the second. They are really close together but you are heading absolutely straight across (i.e. not Clacton). At the end (not far) yet another mini roundabout, turn right. Go over the river and then at the next mini roundabout turn left (Brook Street). Go up the hill and straight over at the traffic lights (Wimpole Road).

Then for Rowhedge….
At the next traffic lights turn left. This road will then head back out of town towards Rowhedge. After quite a while (down hill and up again) there is a zebra crossing followed by a mini roundabout again, go straight over. Then straight over again at the next mini roundabout. About 500 yards up on the left (straight after pub) there is a turning towards Rowhedge Wharf (I think), there is a turning anyway. Take this (If you miss it it doesn't matter you can carry on and then turn left a couple of miles on). Go down this road for about a mile. You will come back into a 30 limit. Follow the road round the left hand bend and then take the first turning on the right. Follow this up the hill a bit and the village hall is signposted on the left.

Directions A12 (South) to Rowhedge

The easiest way is not necessarily the shortest but this will be easier for you to follow.

Take the turning from the A12 sign-posted for Stanway and the Zoo. At the roundabout at the top of this sliproad, turn right on to dual carriageway. At the end, go straight across the roundabout heading for the town centre. Stay on this road (beware of the speed camera). Go straight across any mini roundabouts and then again at a set of traffic lights. There is then a traffic island/roundabout at which you need to turn right towards the town centre, this is Lexden Road (stick with the residential looking area on the right side of the Crown pub). Around a mile later, go straight across the roundabout and take the middle lane. Then stay in this lane (dual carriage way – becomes the left-hand lane). You will pass two sets of traffic lights and then approach another roundabout. Again, from the middle lane go straight across and then follow the arrows on the road for Fingringhoe (filtering right), this is Military Road. Follow this road to a crossroads with traffic lights. Go straight ahead.

Then for Rowhedge….
This road will then head back out of town towards Rowhedge. After quite a while (down hill and up again) there is a zebra crossing followed by a mini roundabout again, go straight over. Then straight over again at the next mini roundabout. About 500 yards up on the left (straight after pub) there is a turning towards Rowhedge Wharf. Take this (If you miss it it doesn't matter you can carry on and then turn left a couple of miles on). Go down this road for about a mile. You will come back into a 30 mph speed limit. Follow the road round the left hand bend and then a sharp bend to the right. Follow on up the hill a bit and the village hall is signposted on the left after the school.
