Does a ‘3 hour booking’ mean 3 hours of continous playing, or could you take an hour break in the middle?

A 3-hour booking does mean 3 hours of continous playing (apart from during the ceremony, where we may not play continously but wouldn’t be able to take a break). If you would like to spread music throughout your day, with a long break (of half an hour or more) between periods of playing, this is not charged as playing time, but at a nominal fee of £10 per player per hour of ‘waiting’ between periods of playing. So for example, you could book the quartet to play for 3 hours spread across 4 hours of time and this would be charged at an additional £40 for the waiting time.
