VERDICT RESPONSE TO COVID-19 OUTBREAK
Dear valued customers,
In light of the recent Covid-19 outbreak, and after much careful consideration the promoters at The Verdict have decided to close and postpone our gigs until further notice.
While we felt there could be measures and practices upheld that might offer protection to ourstaff, performing artists and patrons; we have reached the conclusion that following suit to our European counterparts is the only option that truly prevents small gatherings at the venue being a potential risk to all parties concerned.
We sensitively request that any tickets currently purchased be used as a credit note for future gigs when we gratefully return to business. The government has at this time offered no assurance to those working in the arts and entertainment sector, despite the already very damaging effect it has had to most artists whom are self employed and the hospitality teams that support them; as a small independent venue we seek to minimise the impact this has on our future ability to host events and the knock on effect it will have on our acts.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and support.
In the words of Pepper Adams "I'm all in favor of getting grants for musicians. Or any other goodbrand of Scotch"
