“I apologise for the silence over the last few weeks but we have been thinking and planning the future of Concerts in the West.
As we work in small venues it makes it difficult for us to have a large audience and with the current restrictions it would be very small indeed and financially unviable. As you know these regulations affect performances of all sorts all over the country in big and small venues.
We are very glad to hear that the Government is going to financially support the arts, without which the world would be a grey and dismal place. We hope that this help will reach small arts centres and venues throughout the UK as they are so important to local communities and give performance opportunities for young artists of all genres.
Concert tours will hopefully start again from April 2021 and work has started on dates from there, hoping plans won’t need to be cancelled again.
It is wonderful to be able to start thinking ahead and we can’t wait to welcome the musicians and our audiences back again.”
