Dear Kabir Jha,
Thank you for your email. I am delighted to hear about the cultural program you and your team have planned for this special occasion.
Regarding your request to use the hall during the lunch break for rehearsal purposes, I appreciate your initiative in seeking permission. After considering your request, I am pleased to inform you that your fellow participants may use the hall for their rehearsals.
You mentioned that they would like to practice there for a couple of days. That should be fine, as long as it does not disrupt any ongoing activities or classes. Please ensure that the rehearsals are conducted in an organized manner and that the hall is left in a tidy condition after each session.
I am glad to see your enthusiasm and dedication towards making this program a success. I wish you and your team all the best with your rehearsals and the overall event.
If you have any further questions or require any assistance, please feel free to reach out to me.
