Amber take steps to mitigate Covid risk at Annual Concert

While The Amber Trust is excited to be hosting its first LIVE event since the loosening of social distancing restrictions, many people may still be wary of attending the event in person due to Covid-19. 

The safety of all performers and visitors to the Annual Concert at St Paul’s School on September 26, remains a priority for all. We ask those due to attend to please stay at home if you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19. 

The Trust has taken steps to mitigate the risks at The Wathen Hall and, as such, we encourage that face masks be worn and will be readily available if necessary for visitors. Hand sanitiser will be available and all communal areas well ventilated. 

Performers, volunteers and Amber staff will undergo lateral flow testing prior to arrival, while all shared instruments and surfaces will be sanitised between use. 

For those unable to join us and host Amber patron Derek Paravicini, the concert will be broadcast live over the internet – in association with sponsors Caterlyst – via the Trust’s YouTube channel and available here 2021 Amber Trust Annual Concert. 

It is hoped viewers will show their support by donating the cost of a concessionary ticket (£10) via Amber’s text donation service. 

Those attending the concert in person should be aware that, as the event is being filmed, they may appear online and via social media and therefore, may like to sit in the rows at the back of the hall.  

Tickets for the show, which starts at 3:30pm, cost £20 (concessions £10), with all proceeds going to the Trust to help continue its work in supporting visually impaired children and young adults – and those with additional disabilities – to reach their musical potential.
