In order to maintain a corporate image with our parent organisation
Egham & District Choral Society (registered charity number 277586)
and our sister choir Egham Choral certain guidelines are to be observed in all printed matter such as programmes, posters, tickets, websites etc and in our communications with the media
The outer cover should be of card, with internal sheets of paper, the whole stapled. Whilst colour is optional, it is desirable. Good design is the object. The cover must include: 1) The choir logo (plus name of choir if necessary.)

3) Title, or main ingredient, of the concert. If appropriate, composer’s name.
4) Date (including year, and preferably the day)
5) Location (but not postcode, as programmes are not sold in advance)
