Updated: 4 days ago
[Updated Monday 30 March]
First and most importantly, we hope you and your loved ones are well during this unprecedented and unsettling time.
Due to government advice issued on Monday 16 March in response to the COVID-19 epidemic, we are postponing public performances at Gosforth Civic Theatre until at least 1 May 2020. We will then be looking at events beyond that as we get more information and guidance from the government. Some events beyond April have already been rescheduled by artists and promoters due to larger tours being affected by this situation.
Unfortunately this means that the below list of performances, at the time of writing, have been postponed so far:
19 March - Abbie Finn Trio - rescheduled to Thursday 10 September 2020.
20 March - The Magpies
28 March - Great Northern Piano Session IV
29 March - New Jam
2 April - Liberdade presents Engage
3 April - Jeffery Foucault & Ry Cavanaugh
6 April - Relentless by Mortal Fools
8 April - Andy and the Odd Socks
17 April - Lullaboogaloo's Easter Extravaganza
17 April - Live in the Lounge presents Janice Burns and Jon Doran & Memphis Gerald
18 April - On Red Kites by Eliot Smith Dance
23 April - Zoe Gilby 'Aurora' Quartet
2 May - Martha Tilson
9 May - Chatham County Line
10 May - Unsung
22 May - Joan Shelley
These regular activities that take place in the venue have also been put on hold with immediate effect at the time of writing:
Babies and Toddler's Freeplay
GCT Gaming Social
Inclusive beginners Dance
Where rescheduled dates have yet to be confirmed, we are working hard to reschedule the performance with the artist, we will be in touch with ticket buyers directly via and our website and social media should there be any updates.
If you have a ticket for any of the affected events your ticket will be valid for any new date for the performance agreed with the artist.
While you are fully entitled to a full refund if the event is cancelled, or you are unable to or would rather not make the new date, please consider donating the cost of your ticket.
COVID-19 will have a significant impact on Gosforth Civic Theatre and Liberdade, and on the many artists, promoters, bands and organisations who we work with each year. Without you visiting our cafe, buying tickets, or supporting the work Liberdade do with people with learning disabilities, our income is severely impacted and the future of the venue and charity put in to doubt. Liberdade is a registered charity, but 70% of our annual income is earned, like ticket sales. Donating your ticket will help support us and the artists you were due to come and see.
We will also be sharing ways you can support the various companies, independents, promoters, artists and other venues in the region via our social media pages in the coming weeks.
If you would like to claim your refund, please request one directly through Eventbrite if you bought your ticket online, or if you bought in person or over the phone please call 0191 284 3700 with your card to hand and we can process your refund remotely. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
