Music at St Peter’s regrets that it has been obliged to cancel part of its planned 2020 season of concerts, as the impact of the coronavirus makes it very unlikely that these concerts would have been able to go ahead. Some form of social distancing and prohibition on events will almost certainly be in force for several months, and St Peter’s church is now closed for an indefinite period. Even if the restrictions are relaxed, the risks of transmission of the virus will remain high and the health of our performers and audience must be our first priority. Therefore the Music at St Peter’s concerts in May, June and July have been cancelled.
We are currently still hoping it may be possible to continue with the scheduled concerts in August, September and October, but in view of the uncertainty about the course of the pandemic, ticket sales for these concerts are currently suspended.
Tickets sold for the cancelled concerts, and season tickets, are being refunded. If you purchased online, TicketSource will process the refund automatically. If you purchased by post, we will contact you by email or post to arrange a refund. If you have purchased tickets and have not heard from us, please email tickets AT musicatstpeterswallingford.org.uk (replace the AT by the at symbol) quoting your ticket number(s).
We very much hope to able to resume our normal programme in 2021, with a full season of nine chamber music concerts, and will endeavour to reschedule some of the cancelled concerts into the 2021 programme.
There are 9 concerts in our 2020 season and all take place at St Peter’s Church, Wallingford and start at 8pm.
