“All upcoming events have been scheduled under the provision and expectation that they will be able to run safely in accordance with the latest Covid-19 government guidance rules. This includes the eventual relaxation of local restrictions regarding live events. While we expect these events to be able to run as close to 'normal' as possible, we would like to assure ticket holders and potential customers at this point - as well as staff, performers and all other attendees - that we are wholly committed to working with the relevant authorities to implement appropriate Covid-19 measures and procedures where applicable in order to ensure that these events can take place safely, comfortably and securely. If we deem there to be any risk to public safety, we will reschedule our events and a full ticket refund will be available to those who purchased."
