TODAY’S (Wednesday, January 13) bad weather has resulted in a severe failure to the heating system at St Mary's Centre in Chester.
So the Chester Music Society Celebrity Concert due to take place tonight with Laura Lucas (flute) and Dominic John (piano) has been cancelled.
Berkeley Ranby, chairman of the concerts section, said: “We learned of the problem the afternoon before the event and were unable to get another suitable venue in the time available. We spent the rest of the time ringing around and emailing ticket holders.
“Hopefully the problem can be sorted in time for our next concert with Emma Johnson (clarinet) and John Lenehan (piano) on February 10. But we shall have to wait and see the extent of the damage and explore alternative venues if necessary.”
