From 5pm this evening, Wednesday 18th March, Dunoon Burgh Hall will close to the public in line with UK and Scottish Government advice to avoid contributing to the spread of Coronavirus – Covid 19. The health and wellbeing of our customers, staff, volunteers and community is our main priority.
With regards to our scheduled shows and events over the next couple of months, we hope to be able to reschedule as many as we can for later in the year. We will be contacting those who have purchased tickets in the next seven to ten days and would thank you for your patience while we work on this. There will be options available for you including:
• Keeping your tickets for any rescheduled dates
• Receiving a credit for future events in the Hall
• Transferring your purchase to a donation for the Hall.
While our office will not be open, our phone messages and email will continue to be monitored, although it may take us a couple of days to get back to you. This is not because we don’t want to talk to you! It will just allow us to ensure we contact all of the people, groups and companies we need to in the coming days.
As you can imagine, the Board and staff of DBH are devastated at having to take the decision to close the building, however we are determined that we shall be able to welcome the local community back into the Hall as soon as it is safe to do so. We are working on a plan to best use the Hall and our team to support the Community through the difficult times that we all face over the coming weeks.
By closing our doors, we lose the vast majority of our income. As you may be aware, Dunoon Burgh Hall Trust is a registered charity. If you are able to make a donation at this time (and every penny counts!) this would help us while we try to negotiate this crisis while maintaining our magnificent building and retaining our team of staff. You can donate through our fundraising page at wonderful.org: Donate to Dunoon Burgh Hall
As soon as we can bring you any more information regarding our plans, we’ll post the information on our website and Facebook page.
Take care of yourselves and your families and, if you can, take a little extra time to look out for your friends and neighbours. At times like this, we can find strength in coming together as a community.
