We hope that you are all safe, well and are taking the required precautions in light of recent developments with the COVID-19 outbreak.
An update on our events for March and April; due to the effects of Coronavirus and amidst a series of requests to postpone shows until later this year, we are currently in discussions with all of our venue partners, agents and artists about potential new dates. More on which, soon.
The postponement of these shows, the economic precarity of the times and our own moral obligation to keep the most vulnerable amongst us safe has left us with no option than to close our doors for the foreseeable, thus throwing our long term future as a music venue into question.
On behalf of the promoters and artists that we work with we would like to kindly request that those who have already purchased tickets to our now postponed events, to take the option to transfer these tickets over to the newly established dates as they become public knowledge. This would require no effort on your part only to confirm that you're happy for us to proceed with the transfer of your tickets that will remain valid for the new dates, should you still wish to attend.
Although we would greatly appreciate the option of transferring tickets over to new dates being taken, it is, as ever our wont to offer full refunds at the point of purchase and we are happy to honour requests to do so on a case by case basis.
Meanwhile we will continue to keep everyone updated with utmost transparency regarding more show postponements and rescheduled dates via our socials, mailing list and website.
Finally and it goes without saying that this is the most challenging of times for everybody and with that we would like to extend a message of solidarity to everybody in our beloved community of music and art lovers, our local musicians and artists, our sound engineers, our bar staff, our local cafes and restaurants, fellow small music venues and small businesses, those who are working in the hospitality and health and social care sectors, the most vulnerable in our society who are most at risk, the new Mutual Aid groups that have mobilised in the face of frightening times that we are so far witness to. You are not alone in this and together we must unite to overcome the challenges of this uncertain landscape.
Let's stay safe and look after each other.
