SELBY Town Hall is cancelling all public ticketed events from today initially until the end of April.
The decision has been taken “in light of the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday and the UK government’s instructions regarding social distancing”.
A statement from Selby Town Council arts officer Chris Jones said: “This is a fast-changing situation, and we will be monitoring advice from the Government and Public Health England on a day-by-day basis to inform our course of action from May onwards.
“Rest assured that the health of our customers, performers, volunteers and staff is our highest priority.”
Selby Town Hall will be contacting all ticket holders “as soon as we can”. “It may be possible to rearrange some performances either for later in the year or early 2021, while others will sadly be cancelled altogether,” said Chris.
“To all our customers, you are fantastic. We are incredibly grateful for the support you have given, and continue to give, to the venue. We ask for your patience while our small team deal with what is an unprecedented situation.
“It will take us a few days to establish new dates for shows or confirm full cancellations. The most important message for the moment is not to travel to shows here in the near future, to stay safe, and to look after one another. We will be in touch with you all individually in due course.”
