Fresh chaos over Barbican closuremain
The British prime minister is due to make a statement on Monday, outlining the country’s emergence from lockdown.
The Barbican has jumped the gun by telling patrons it will stay shut through the summer.
Here’s the message customers are getting:
Because of the ongoing uncertainty caused by the pandemic, we’ve decided to cancel all the concerts you’ve booked for that were due to take place between 25 March and 11 July 2021.
To request a refund, to ask for the credit to be added to your account (valid for 12 months), or to donate the value of your ticket, head to https://tickets.barbican.org.
If you don’t set a preference before Thursday 4 March 2021 we’ll automatically refund you.
There has been no official announcement by the Barbican on its extended closure. It’s mayhem down there.
UPDATE: Ten minutes after this post appeared, the Barbican issued the following statement:
The Barbican today announced that its Live from the Barbican concert series will continue after Easter, including rescheduled dates from the postponed Live from the Barbican spring series. This will replace any previously announced concerts between April and July 2021. Full details for Live from the Barbican this summer will be announced in due course.
