Dear Parents and Carers,

We very much look forward to seeing you at the Cavern Club on Monday 16th December.

Please take a moment to read through these final details to ensure your day runs smoothly.

SMS Coaches:

If you are using the Solihull Music Service coaches they are departing Land Rover Social Club at 7.00am prompt.

The list of people using our coaches is here:

Cavern Coach list

Concert tickets and performer wristbands

Any uncollected concert tickets will be taken to the Cavern club and you will able to collect them ‘on the door’. We have extra tickets available for those people who need to purchase them on the day.

Performer wristbands: we aim to give the majority of these out before students arrive at the Cavern. However schools and performers who don’t get them before the day will be able to collect them on arrival.

Cavern Hoodies

All the hoodies have arrived at the Music Service (Thursday) and an email has been sent out to all the parents asking them to collect them on Saturday between 9.00am – 12.00pm. Any hoodies left over will be taken to the Cavern Club.

Arrival at the Cavern Club.

When you arrive at the Cavern club, please make yourself known to a member of staff and pupils will be directed to leave their instruments in the designated space. If you are on our coach (or arriving early) we expect you to be at the Cavern for around 10.30am. SMS staff will brief you all in the Live Lounge.

Programme of the day:

Please see below the programme of the day:

Cavern 2019- programme

Parents and pupils can plan their day in Liverpool around the various acts over the three stages.

Any pupils who are unaccompanied will need a note off their parents/Carer if they are to be allowed to leave the Cavern. No pupil will be allowed on their own offsite (min groups of 5) unless with a parent (parental consent) or with a member of staff.

  • If you do leave the cavern (even with parents) can you please sign out and when you return sign back in. This is particularly important as mobile phones tend not to have any signal when you are in the club. The Cavern Phone number is 0151 236 9091

If you are using our coaches we expect you to be in the Live Lounge for the last concert so we can depart promptly.

We hope you have a fantastic day.

SYMSA -AGM 17th October 2019



Open Invitation to get involved with Solihull Young Musicians Support Association


SYMSA is an independent charitable organisation that supports young musicians in Solihull. There are some very visible sides to this through the co-ordination of the Tuck shop at Lyndon Music Centre to fund raising and offering financial support to enhance music making within the Borough.

In the last year SYMSA has funded the purchase of new music stands, sheet music for ensembles, theatre lighting equipment and a grant to assist with the Abbey Road project which saw hundreds of young people perform at the world famous Abbey Road Studios.

We would like to invite you to come and find out a bit more about SYMSA at our AGM which is being held at Solihull Music Service on Thursday 17th October at 4.45pm.

We are looking for people who have children involved in the Music service activities to find out more and see if you can help and get involved. This could be as part of the SYMSA committee, helping out at the Tuck Shop, helping at concerts or bringing your own skills and expertise to the table. However you help you will be promoting music making by young people in Solihull.


Please come along to the AGM to find out more or contact SYMSA on


Best wishes

Lawrence Smith
