We were saddened by the news last month of the sudden death of our member Donna Young. Some of you will remember seeing the beautiful girls Emily & Gracie performing at 50 Dundas. We send our heartfelt condolences to Richard and the family.
As Covid-19 tightens it’s grip, the Committee has been working hard to make sure that we can operate safely to allow us to continue to enjoy excellent live music in Dunedin. A full set of our new protocols have been posted on all of our outlets. Our Club nights recently have been well attended and the Open Mic has been attracting good numbers and quite a few new people which keeps it fresh.
Sadly, the Whare Flat Festival committee made the decision to cancel this year’s event due to Covid restrictions and financial risk. A full statement from festival director Stephen has been posted on the website and Facebook pages.
We continue to make small improvements around the Opoho venue and the stage area is looking fantastic. We plan to meet with the Bowling Club committee early January to discuss bigger agenda items such as upgrades to the kitchen and installation of hot water.
We had a recent communication from the organisers of the Thieves Alley Market Day in February. We have application forms on our noticeboard for any performers who want to apply for a spot on the day.
We have just a couple more great concerts coming up before our final night of the year on December 12th. This will be a party night – free entry, bring a plate and drinks. Your Committee will be organising a great night of musical entertainment for you.
