Lunchtime Concert 26 March 2020 - Cancelled

Date/Time: Thursday 26 March 2020, 1310

Venue: King's Hall, Armstrong Building, Newcastle University


In light of the ongoing concerns, Newcastle University has taken the decision to cancel all non-essential events which have a public element, until the end of term (27 March).  This decision applies to the LIVE in the King’s Hall concerts that were planned for Thursday 19th March and Thursday 26th March.

While this is obviously very disappointing news, the University is committed to taking every precaution to limit the spread of the virus within our community and to protect the well-being of our students, colleagues and members of the public who visit our campus.

The situation will be reviewed with regard to the remaining events in the LIVE calendar this semester after the student Easter break (27th April onwards).  If we are in a position to reschedule, either later this academic year, or next, we will certainly try to do so.
