Regrettably while the Central Theatre in Chatham did open after the first lockdown, due to its age, structure and financial constraints the building was unable to comply completely with government policy for event venues. They had a restriction of 10 on stage – not quite sufficient for a Symphony Orchestra to perform!
We’re delighted to have found a COVID-safe venue for rehearsals. We had been planning to resume rehearsals on 9th November, until the second national lock-down was announced. We then hoped to rehearse again from Monday 7th December, but Tier 3 then Tier 4 and the third lockdown stopped us.
Until we can rehearse and perform together again, we are enjoying the creation of group recordings.
