COVID 19 – SEPTEMBER AND NOVEMBER 2020 CONCERTS CANCELLATION.
Regrettably, having consulted all the Government and Church requirements, it has proved impossible in our hall, to meet the distances required between performers on stage, performers to audience, and space out the audience at tables,
As such, we have had to conclude that we are unable to put on these planned events and thus are cancelling our bookings.
Decisions on whether we can proceed in January, February and March 2021 will be considered in late November.
Tickets for the re-arranged Boogie Bill performance on 27th February 2021 are still valid. Keep them safe!
