Following a period of closely monitoring the current COVID situation and in conjunction with
Government health requirements and updates we sadly have no option but to cancel all events
booked for R10 Venue for 2021. This includes the Spirit of the South and We Believe Saint John –
The Concert events. The current health situation is too unstable to consider going ahead with
anything where the safety of all music fans is not guaranteed.
We would like to acknowledge the support and encouragement of everyone who has supported us in
this strange year and we can assure you that we are as disappointed as anyone could be that this
situation has arisen. However, we are comfortable in the knowledge that nothing we do will impact
negatively on anybody’s health and welfare and that has to be the benchmark that we set ourselves
Ticket refunds will be automatically returned to the card they were booked with. We expect this
process to begin immediately and to be complete within 2 weeks.
We were excited at the introduction of our new Club Rio initiative and hoped to kick this off in
September but the problems causing the relaxing of a return to some semblance of normality mean
that we cannot guarantee a date that we can set in stone so we have decided to close the entire
2021 season down completely.
We hope to be able to return next year with an equally good if not better line up of shows and we
pray that this health situation will be alleviated by that time. Until then please stay safe and well and
be aware of all safety protocols and we look forward to meeting you all in the music soon enough in
Thank you all,
Artistic Director R10 Venue
