Live Music at Rosslyn Court
Updates from Rosslyn Court
24th June 2020
Our live-stream with JAKL was a huge success. Great thanks to Shaun of PrickImage for some great camerawork and to Hughie Gavin (JAKL) for a stunning performance and of course to the large number of people who watched, sent comments and made donations. We have made a commitment to all musicians playing for us that we will do all we can to get them a reasonable fee as times are hard for performers and your donations are a great help in this.
Next live-stream will be popular "Men of Kent" Bob Kenward and Steve Moreham on Wednesday July 1st at 7.30. There will be a raffle, beer deliveries and who knows what else! The link for the live-stream on YouTube is here. See our Facebook page for more details
5th June 2020
Given that it looks like live music will be in lockdown for quite a time yet, we are experimenting with other formats. On Wednesday 17th we will be live-streaming a concert by JAKL. Joining details on our Facebook page. If you missed it, it is still available on YouTube.

What can I say? I hope that you are well and are staying safe.
I hope that we will be able to open again soon
and that we can all share more wonderful evenings of great live music
at Rosslyn Court again . (But not too soon, we have to keep safe.)
Until then, please check this page as everything is in flux.
Looking forward to getting back to normal.
The Government guidelines covering live performances - which are currently still not allowed - are at the moment still under development. We will implement them as soon as they are announced. Below are our current plans for when we reopen, but these may of course have to change to allow for any new regulations.
Deep cleaning between events
One way system for entry and exit
Social distancing to current regulations
Shielding of performers
Ordering via text and table service
