Please note: when you book, let us know who in your party is in your 'bubble' and who is not, if relevant. We have to set up the audience seating to reflect these bubbles and you will therefore have allocated seats on arrival. If there are any changes to your booking / group / bubble, please let us know in advance of the concert so we can try and accommodate this. It's a rather drawn-out process but for everyone's comfort and safety, it has to be done this way. Please bear with us!
You will need to wear a face covering on arrival and departure and communal areas but CAN remove it once you are seated for the duration of the concert. There will be no interval and no refreshments available though you are welcome to bring and consume your own.
To book tickets, email us on email@example.com or tel 01381 600354. We can take payment by bank transfer (preferred method), card payment, cheque or cash. Our office is no longer open every day but someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
