FRIENDS OF THE CLUNY! LIVE MUSIC IS BACK!
We are delighted to announce that over the coming months we will be playing host to some of our favourite local artists in the safe, fully-seated, and socially distanced environment of Cluny 2.
As always, the safety of our customers, staff, and artists is extremely important to us, and as such our management team have spent the last four months working on the best possible way to use the venue space in a way that safely works for all and adheres to all current national guidelines.
The venue will be fully seated, with a reduced capacity of 60. Tickets are available to purchase in advance only (no sales on the door) in groups of up to 6 persons max. to ensure we have correct track and trace information for everyone who attends. All seats and tables are at a minimum distance of at least 2m from each other and seats/tables will be allocated in advance upon booking. The venue bar will be open with table service only, and a one way system for entry/exit and toilets will also be in operation to ensure customers remain at a safe distance from one another. These new arrangements will all be clearly signposted inside the venue, and we will have three of our fantastic staff on hand to monitor the doors, bar, and guide customers to their allocated seats and answer any questions upon arrival. All Cluny staff, as well as our engineers, will wear face protection at all times.
Lineups will feature one live act only, performing several sets over the course of a day; afternoon, matinee, and evening shows (see website for exact details). The venue will be fully cleared out and disinfected in between performances and doors will open one hour before each set begins to help ensure that audience arrival times are as evenly spread as possible.
Obviously we're aware that this is a bit of an unconventional setup compared to our usual 'pre-2020' gigs, but we're all confident that this new arrangement is going to be extremely enjoyable for audience and artists alike.
Hopefully see you all soon!
