Update on concerts postponed from 2019/20

It's now just over a year since the Covid-19 pandemic led to the sudden postponement of the final two concerts in our 2019/20 season, featuring the Brodsky Quartet & Martin Roscoe and pianist Lara Melda. At that time we wrote to all ticket holders explaining our plan to reschedule these two concerts in the period April-June 2021. We then gave everyone the option to receive a refund or to retain their tickets for the new dates.

Over the past year, we have all been waiting patiently for the public health situation to improve and for government restrictions to be relaxed. But even as we take tentative steps to ease restrictions at a national level, our committee still does not feel that we are currently in a position to hold indoor events in a Covid-safe manner with the large number of audience members envisaged for our two concerts. It is therefore with much sadness that we have now decided to cancel both events.

If you hold tickets for either (or both) of these concerts, our Box Office has already attempted to contact you by email with details of our refunds policy. If you haven't heard from us (don't forget to check your spam!), please contact us as soon as possible on skiptonmusic@gmail.com so that we can re-send you the message.

As regards our plans for a return to a normal concert season in Autumn 2021, our committee will continue to monitor the situation carefully alongside the managers of our venue, Skipton Town Hall. As a small music society run by a group of volunteers, we still feel that there is a lot to consider before we will be in a position to hold live concerts again safely. However, we are working hard to explore the various options available to us and you can rest assured that we will be in touch just as soon as we have more information.

In the meantime, don't forget to keep an eye on the local press, our website or follow us on social media. Even if you don't have your own social media accounts, why not just click on the Twitter/Facebook/Instagram links on this page and take a look anyway?

With kind regards and we hope to see you again soon.
