Over 100 musicians and singers are selected from the Sitz members, with the orchestra and singers rehearsing separately throughout the day, before coming together in the evening to run the show from start to finish. The event takes place with no audience present in the beautiful surroundings of our Grade II* listed Great Hall.
Sitzes are strictly private events, and you must be 18 or over to attend. To take part, you need to become a member, but it's completely free to sign up.

How we’re keeping you safe
Because we would like to keep the staff and each other safe, we expect and recommend face coverings to be worn the public areas that can become crowded. These are the corridors, toilet areas and the queues at the bar. There will also be an event-specific QR code that guests will be asked to scan on arrival.
To gain entry to our larger events, we require you to take a free NHS lateral flow test the night before/morning of the event and log the result on the NHS website or NHS app. You can find tests on the NHS website. Please make sure you have your NHS confirmation email/app showing a negative result to hand as you will be asked to show proof of your test while at the event. Please do not bring your test sample pad – we need the NHS confirmation email or SMS. Read our frequently asked questions.
If you test positive for Covid-19 or are asked to isolate and are not able to attend your class or pre-booked event, please contact the Bishopsgate Box Office for further information (email@example.com). Please do not come to the Institute in person if you have symptoms or have tested positive.
In addition to these measures, Bishopsgate Institute has strict cleaning protocols in place and ventilation throughout the building. There are also numerous hand-sanitising stations available and touch-free drinking fountains. Find out more about how we’re keeping you safe.
