IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT BOOKING TICKETS

We are currently experiencing problems with our new booking system, which means you are only able to book one concert/course/workshop at a time. We had hoped to get this issue resolved quickly but it is taking longer than we originally thought it would, so please do bear with us.

Hopefully in a few days time you will be able to purchase multiple events in one transaction. We’ll keep you posted and many thanks for your patience.
