We are focusing our 2021 season on chamber performances in light and airy venues which are already well-practiced in Covid safety measures.
We are planning two separate performances on each date (with a break in between for venue cleaning) of a slightly shortened, no-interval programme, in order that as many people as possible have the chance to experience the wonderful artists we have in store. Should limits be eased in the intervening months, we will review arrangements and hope to open ticket sales up to larger numbers.
Details of all Covid safety measures will be issued to ticket-holders shortly before each concert date.
