The Echo Hotel Music Club (EHMC) has increased in popularity since it started last year so it is sad to see the 2020 programme being cut short, but it is definitely the right thing to do, to ensure everyone remains safe. We hope that EHMC can return bigger and better in 2021.
Press release from EHMC:
We hope everyone is well and continuing to stay safe.
After much deliberating and watching how the Coronavirus situation has developed, we have decided that it is very unlikely that gigs are going to be feasible before the end of the year at the earliest. Therefore, it is with great sadness that we are cancelling the rest of the gig programme for 2020. Foremost in our minds has been the safety of our audiences, bands and our team of volunteers.
For those who have bought tickets via Ticketsource, you will get refunded automatically. For those who bought tickets in any other way (e.g. cash) please contact us on 07810 893564 to agree how we can refund you.
We have decided to do it this way, rather than just reschedule the gigs in 2021 with existing tickets, because of the uncertainty of dates in terms of any on-going restrictions, band availability and the commitments of our audience members. We have already had discussions about rescheduling with the 2020 bands and it is hoped that we will be able to new dates with all of them.
