HINCKLEY tribute band, 4th Avenue, are holding an outdoor ‘open air’ concert at the Ashby Road Sports Club on Sunday 30 August in just three weeks’ time.
The open air concert makes up for the band’s scrapped ‘Music in the Mead’ that was originally scheduled to take place on 15 August.
Their Council-backed ‘Music in the Mead’ event was cancelled by event organisers with all of their other events this month, following ‘continued advice’ from the Government.
The band have confirmed that the new show at the Ashby Road Sports Club will ‘fit the current climate’ with safety measures and precautions in place.
Today, a spokesperson for 4th Avenue, said: “Wrist bands are flying out the door for our show at Ashby Road on 30th August!”
4th Avenue will perform two sets, with the first set running from 2.30pm to 3.15pm.
Tickets can be purchased by getting in touch with the Ashby Road Sports Club online.
The tickets will be available in units of six. Attendees will be allocated their own area on the field, also referred to as their own ‘boxes’.
There are two options up for grabs for the tickets. £24 for an ‘empty box’, to bring your own tables and chairs, or £36 for a box with a picnic bench.
Tickets will only be up for grabs until 28 August online, so paying at the door on the day won’t be an option.
Safety and rules
All attendees must wear wristbands as these will have information on where they will be seated outside.
There will not be any dance floors, so concert-goers must dance in their own social distancing ‘boxes’.
Hand sanitiser will be available on both the entrance and exit to the venue.
The Club toilets will be open for attendees to use where a one-way system is in place.
Two visitor bars are open where card-only payments will only be accepted, and drinks from the bar will be served in plastic cups.
No inside covering is available, so concert-goers are being asked by the venue to come prepared in case of any bad weather on the day.
If attendees fail to follow the rules in place, they’ll be removed from the venue without a refund.
Refunds will only be available if the event is completely cancelled and won’t be issued in case of bad weather if the concert does go ahead.
