About Summer Series
Please note: In light of advice from the Government, we have made the difficult decision to postpone putting tickets on sale for this year’s Summer Series.
We’ve announced a brilliant line-up of acts, and we very much hope that we can bring them to our audiences this summer. We have to respond to current circumstances and believe it’s better to delay putting tickets on sale at this point. We hope to be on sale at the earliest opportunity.
