Updated on Saturday 11th December 2020,
Dear Haslemere Hall Friends and Members,
We are so glad to be open and with a great fully packed programme planned for you for this Christmas and well into the New Year.
Downstairs in the auditorium we will have 120 stalled seating. These consist of 10 rows, each with 12 seats in. Each row consists of a block of 3 seats followed by 3 pairs of seats and then another block of 3 seats on the far side. There are also 35 seats available in the balcony.
We are able to open our bar and serve sweets and ice creams from there. We are no longer able to serve coffees and teas until further notice. We open 30 minutes prior to the start of each performance to allow everyone to come in and order their drinks for the interval and pay by card and then all drinks are consumed sitting in the seats rather than in the Annexe. We have restricted numbers in the Annexe to ensure everyone is social distanced and at the end of each performance, customers are guided row by row to ensure a safe and uncrowded exit.
Do not forget that you will be required by law to wear a mask when you arrive for an event and keep wearing throughout the duration of the performance. We have sanitiser for use and also a very well controlled one way system.
We are also the home of The Haslemere Community Store every Wednesday, which has been set up to help people who have been thrown into financial difficulty due to coronavirus. This initiative has been set up and operated entirely by volunteers and recognises social distancing. If you, or you know anyone who needs any help with supplying groceries at this time please do not hesitate to contact the Haslemere Community Store on 07873 383954 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
What happens going forward? – Well firstly we would like to say thank you for all your supportive emails, telephone calls and also your very kind financial donations towards the Hall. After last years generous donations towards our Spend A Penny appeal to improve the toilets, we felt that we couldn’t ask for anything further from our generous Members, so it has been really special to receive these kind gestures. Thank you all so much.
Please keep an eye on our website or call us in the Box Office from Monday to Friday from 9 to 1. We are currently closed on Saturday mornings
Our lovely friends at Kids’ Symphonic Sundays have new dates for the autumn. If you cant wait until then please follow them on their YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCD4uTaGMu7z7OrP0eTyNTYA
We love what we do here and look forward to seeing you loving what we have done very soon. If you have any questions regarding anything then please do let us know by email to email@example.com and we will do our very best to get back to you as soon as we can.
Take care, stay safe and thank you all for your support and see you when we can. If anyone needs anything then please let us know and we will see if we can help you.
Howard and us all at Haslemere Hall
