The Future: Proposed Sheffield concerts for autumn 2020

 

A note from our Executive Director, Jo Towler

The government’s announcement of £1.57bn to support the arts was hugely welcome news. At the moment we are waiting to hear more about who is eligible and how to apply, but I hope we will be able to access it to support our concerts and activity in Sheffield and around the country.

We are also hoping that the guidelines currently being worked on by the DCMS (pending a number of pilot events) for live indoor music performances will mean we can host an autumn series of concerts in Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

Following discussions with Sheffield Theatres, we are sadly unable to return to our Crucible Studio home until 2021.

However, we are working with Upper Chapel, where we are hoping to present a series of shorter concerts this autumn. In anticipation, we’re currently working with the Chapel to ensure it is COVID-secure, following Public Health England guidance.

Concerts will be repeated at lunchtime and in the evening, with limited audiences, social distancing and staggered arrival times, plus hand sanitiser and face masks available. Please see below for our proposed dates – all tbc as and when the guidance permits. We are also hoping to present concerts elsewhere in South Yorkshire. Please watch this space.

All being well, details of how to book for the autumn season will be shared soon, and we look forward to seeing you for some live music!
