Coffee Concerts are back LIVE! at the Holywell Music Room

We’re excited to announce the return of live weekly Coffee Concerts to the Holywell after an absence of some 16 months. To ensure Covid safety is maximised in these early days of lockdown relaxation, please note that for the time being the Holywell will be restricted to half its usual capacity to allow social distancing (preferably at least one metre between individuals who are not in the same household or bubble) and facemark wearing inside the hall will be mandatory. Since ticket numbers are so limited, please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Please note also that we will need your contact details at the time tickets are purchased.
