Preston and Lytham ONLY: Membership of Magic Voices is £27.50 per month throughout the year (12 months x £27.50). Please note, subscriptions will still be taken even on days that there are no rehearsals (half terms etc) as this is an installment plan based on 36 sessions per year.
General note. The cost of membership of Magic Voices is calculated on an annual basis (although membership requires only a 13 week commitment). For this reason, subscriptions continue regardless of the 2 week breaks (Preston and Lytham work differently as above)
6. All subscriptions (weekly/quarterly) are for a minimum of 13 weeks.
7. If a weekly subscription is cancelled before the required 13 weeks minimum, the member will be invoiced for the remainder.
8. If a subscription is stopped, then restarted, the 13 weeks begins when the new subscription takes effect regardless of any previous subscription
9. Subscriptions continue until cancelled and are for a minimum of 13 weeks. Weekly subscriptions continue during the two week breaks (remember, this is just an easy way to pay by instalments, they are not 'per session'; that's what tokens are for). Members however can attend at least 52 sessions per year including concerts and other choirs if desired. Four weeks notice must be given for cancellation. Subscriptions may not be restarted until 12 weeks have elapsed since cancellation.
10. If a quarterlysubscription is cancelled at any point during the 13 weeks, members can continue to attend for the rest of the 'term'. No refund will be given on subscriptions
11. If a member cancels an automatic subscription, any remaining balance may be converted to tokens rounded down to the nearest £11.50 (or current price of tokens) at Magic Voices' discretion. If the balance is not converted, then membership will continue until 13 weeks after the final payment has been made.
11 a) Magic Voices breaks for 2 weeks at Christmas and 2 weeks at Easter (usually). However, members can still attend 52 (or more) sessions per year as they include all concerts and membership of all other choirs.
12. Tokens are not transferable and membership may be terminated (without refund) of any member receiving or transfering tokens from another member.
13. Tokens are required for all events (except concerts) for members who are not enrolled by subscription.
14. Tokens are NOT refundable. However, they are valid for 5 calendar months.
14 a) LOST TOKEN CARDS. If a token card is lost, then membership will end after 13 weeks from the date the tokens were purchased.
