Live Music at Rosslyn Court
You can either watch us for free on YouTube (donations very welcome-every penny goes to the performer) or join us in person in our Covid-secure studio (tickets from wegottickets or from Morag - email me or phone 07902 140248). We are surviving despite the pandemic - thanks to our faithful crew, Thanet Council, the Music Venue Trust and Arts Council England for their generous support - we couldn't do it without you! Restrictions are currently coming and going at short notice, but we will carry on staging and broadcasting live acoustic music in a safe environment and so supporting our hard-pressed musicians as best we can. We have a great programme set up for 2021 and hope you will join us either in-person or on-line!
