Accommodation check-in and check-out.

Check-in is from 3pm on Friday and Saturday. The venue has been asked to put people from the same chorus in bedrooms near to each other, which will be followed where possible. Please do not request to change your room.
Southwell - Go in the entrance to Southwell and give your name to receive your room key.
Jubilee Conference Centre - Give your name to reception, same as any normal hotel stay.

Check OUT for Southwell is by 9:30am on Sunday. Given the timetable, this means you need to check out (hand your key in) after breakfast and before the first session.  (And before warmup if attending that). If possible, please put any luggage in your car, otherwise there will be luggage storage available, ask at reception for your accommodation.  There may be a charge if you forget to hand in your room key.

Check OUT for Jubilee Conference Centre is by 11:00am on Sunday. You can therefore do this during the morning coffee break if you wish, or may find it more efficient to checkout after breakfast and free yourself up for a day of uninterrupted learning.
Have you forgotten what accommodation you booked when you enrolled? Search your inbox for an email where the subject line starts "Confirmation of LABBS Harmony College Enrolment", open and scroll down to find the code of the accommodation option you chose and paid for, then look up that code on the original prices page. If you were enrolled by someone else, ask them!


Harmony College Reception

The Harmony College reception will be located in the road-side entrance to the Atrium (place where we eat) and will be staffed for collection of your event passes (please bring your LABBS lanyard) at the following times:
  • Friday 5pm-8pm
  • Saturday 9am-9:50am
  • Saturday from 11:10am for late arrivals.

There will generally be someone available at other key times of the day, in case you need help with anything. If you arrive on Saturday between 9:50am and 11:10am, please come to the plenary session in Business School South first and collect your pass in the coffee break afterwards.


The basic timetable for your stream's session timings and lunch slot will be printed on the reverse of your event pass.

Bars and social

Please note: The entire Harmony College event is for enrolled delegates only, plus named volunteers.

Friday - activities for early arrivals

On Friday after dinner, there will be an optional session to sing LABBS polecats under the direction of a selection of LABBS MDs.  This will take place between 8pm-9pm in Business School South, in the auditorium B52. Simply turn up and join in, latecomers also welcome!

Extreme Quartet delegates have also been invited to a stream gathering on Friday evening, to kick off their songs!


There is no bar available in Southwell Hall.  Instead, there are the following options on Friday and Saturday nights - please note the restriction on any singing in the Jubilee Conference Centre and abide by that request, in order to respect other non-LABBS guests.

  • Jubilee Conference Centre - "The Quiet Bar" - the place to sit and have a good chat with friends old and new, without having to shout! Southwell residents may also use this bar.  Please respect the request to NOT sing in this building.
  • The Atrium - "The Loud Bar" - this is the place to be if you don't mind noise, and want a good ole' sing song, whether that be polecats, tags, or anything else!  Drinks will be available as a "bottle bar" and will be served until midnight. The good news is that there is no early noise curfew, as it is not directly attached to the accommodation hall!  Chuck out time when the doors will be locked is 12:30am.
There are also a couple of "Quiet Room" communal spaces in Southwell Hall if you're plain people'd out.
Please respect others and do not sing anywhere in or around Southwell after 10:00pm on both Friday and Saturday, and do NOT continue singing anywhere outside after the bottle bar in the Atrium is closed - noise carries far on this campus!


Residents of the Jubilee Conference Centre will have breakfast there.

All other JCC meals, and all Southwell meals including breakfast, will be served in the Atrium, canteen style. Food will be available between the advertised times in the timetable/below. While it's a good idea to sometimes wait for the queue to die down, don't leave it too late!
Special diets:
All dietary requirements given on your enrolment form have been communicated to the venue. If you have indicated an allergy or intolerance, or you are a vegan, before joining the queue please enquire for each meal whether there is a specific meal set aside for you, to avoid waste.  Vegetarians without any additional dietary needs will be able to select from vegetarian options provided as part of standard fayre.
JCC - check hotel info on arrival for times.
Southwell (Atrium):
Saturday 8:00am - 9:15am
Sunday 7:45am - 9:00am

Your lunch time will be on the reverse of your event pass. Note that in order to minimise queueing, lunch times in the Atrium are staggered as follows:
1st lunch: Blue Chorus, Directors stream, EQ stream
2nd lunch: Red Chorus, Quartet stream, Personal Development Stream
Friday 6:30pm - 8:00pm (only for those who have pre-booked dinner as a "B" enrolment package)
Saturday 6:00pm - 7:30pm (everyone), with a cash bar available for drinks (cards also accepted).
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served in the Business School South and The Exchange Building according to the numbers present in each.  Those based in Dearing and the Amenities Building should go to the Atrium.
