Live music returns to Upper Lansdowne
The Upper Lansdowne Hall committee have worked out that they will be able to hold their planned 19-Twenty concert outside the hall in the surrounding grounds and still comply with the government regulations as they stand on Saturday, August 29.
There are signs that the government may relax the lockdown regulation in the coming months and if that happens and the concert can be safely held in the hall, that is what they will do. Otherwise the concert will be held outside on the grass where it can safely go ahead under the stricter regulations.
If held outside there will be an afternoon start around 2.30pm as it gets very chilly in the evenings of August.
If you book for the 7pm inside show and it changes to 2.30pm time and you cannot or do not want to make it, refunds will be made. Vice versa also applies.
For bookings phone Rita on 02 5591 6017.
