COVID-19 Update 28/11/2020

As the Lockdown in England comes to an end, Darlington will be placed into Tier 3 – Very High Alert restrictions from Wednesday 2nd December. Unfortunately this means that live events with an audience are not permitted to take place so while we remain in Tier 3 our live events will not be taking place. There will be a review of the tier system on 16th December and we hope that Darlington will be moved down to Tier 2 which would mean events can resume.

We hope to reschedule all the events that were due to take place and we will let you know the new dates as soon as possible, however if you would prefer a refund then we can process this after the original event date has passed.

Our Recording Studio and Rehearsal Rooms will be open for professional use only, for bands and artists whose income relies on the use of the recording studio or who are rehearsing for upcoming paid performances. Social distancing must be strictly maintained while using the facilities.

Our café/bar will remain closed at this time.

Students of the Forum Music School will be contacted by your tutor.

Staff will be on site periodically if you need to contact us you can call us on 01325 363135.

The rules and guidelines for COVID-19 restrictions can change on a day to day basis so we will do our best to keep you updated with our situation if it changes.

We are planning on hosting several Live Streamed Events from The Forum while we remain in Tier 3 restrictions, so head over to our Events Page and see what’s coming up. These will all be posted to our YouTube Channel and our Facebook Page.

Confirmed so far we have:
– Thur 3rd December – Moodbay + Analogue Blood
– Fri 4th December – Acoustic Weller

Thank You and stay safe. – Team Forum
