IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT OUR 2020 – 2021 SEASON
It is with great regret that we have taken the decision to cancel the whole of the 2020 – 2021 season. Membership will also be suspended for the coming year.
As you will be aware, the impact of Covid-19 has been unprecedented in many areas of life, not least in the effect on live performances of music and theatre. At the moment there does not appear to be a solution, within the foreseeable future, to enable large groups of people to meet together safely to enjoy watching and listening to artists perform in person. We feel unable to offer our concerts again until such time as a vaccine or treatment proven to combat the virus is forthcoming. Our priority has to be the safety and well-being of our members, concert-goers and our artists.
All the artists due to give concerts in the coming season have been rebooked for the 2021 – 2022 season. These arrangements are subject to Outwood Academy, Foxhills confirming the dates, which have been provisionally agreed, and any government restrictions on the use of school buildings.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and if public gatherings are possible before September 2021, we hope to organise some ad hoc concerts, with people just paying for each concert they attend.
We trust you will understand this has not been an easy decision and look forward to seeing you all again when we are able to resume bringing live classical music back to Scunthorpe. Until then, keep safe and well.
