SORRY FOLKS! I SAID I WOULD LET YOU KNOW AS SOON AS I DID WHAT WAS HAPPENING.....THEN PRESUMED YOU WOULD REALISE THAT TIER 4 MEANT NO CONCERTS YET.
But, to quote the Terminator, we'll be back.
A very Happy New Year to you all...we have every hope of the situation improving once we get through the next few months....so keep on smiling and looking forward to the music!!!
I am not going to change the list of concerts, trusting you to realise that we can't have Jez Lowe, Pete Morton, or any other of the listed artists at the advertised time. When we can have concerts again we will start with the first artist we haven't had to miss ....and I will be wanting to tell you the dates when you will be able to see the artists we have missed.

A VERY SPECIAL THANK-YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO THROUGH THEIR TIME AND EFFORT FREELY GIVEN, MAKE LIVE MUSIC HAPPEN, particularly Brian Burkitt and the Nettleham Village Hall committee.
I am keeping the notices about current Covid regulations in place....until we know anything different. See Covid Secure below.
CONCERT VENUE NETTLEHAM VILLAGE HALL
Doors open 6.30pm. We are currently finishing before 10.00pm. Concert starts at 7.00pm
For your Sat Nav: the address is
Nettleham Village Hall Brookfield Avenue Nettleham LN2 2SS
PLEASE, PLEASE READ THIS...IT DOES AFFECT YOU
now for the exciting bit for you to read through!!...yes, really. Unfortunately you can't just roll up as you usually do. Things are a bit different and initially as you come into the hall, it will look a bit different to you too, a bit empty for a start....all that and we can't sing (replacing that with humming behind our masks)....but it's still great to sit and hear and enjoy live music with other people.
'Virtual' just isn't the same!!! Well, that is what our last audience thought.
There is no raffle either (but we are working on that one!). 📦📦📦📦📦
COVID SECURE or keeping you safe......
Working with Nettleham Village Hall committee and the national governing body for village halls ACRE and to comply with current government regulations:
1. The body count (!) is a maximum of forty-eight (counting us, the sound man, the artist(s)......so audience size can obviously slightly vary as a result.)
2. TICKET price is £12. Please have correct cash/cheque (payable to Lincoln Festival) ready in a sealed envelope to hand in before the concert to Marianne/Andy at the door.
3. A steward will be waiting outside the hall to direct you to an entrance.
4. There will be four exits.
5. SOCIAL DISTANCING will be maintained
by showing you to your designated seat.
You will sit in spaced rows, socially distanced, either singly or with one other person in your household or in your bubble.
Andy says this socially distanced seating makes the hall look like an examination hall, so initially that is a little bit off putting.....particularly because paired seating is at a TABLE.
6. There is NO BAR. Please bring your own refreshments.🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷. Paired seating has tables.
7. MASKS must be worn while entering the hall and when moving around in the hall AND when you are seated during the performance, and you will be reminded to use hand gel as you enter the building.
.....and because we are all wearing masks as you come in we can't greet you with a smile...but it's in our eyes and we are right pleased to see you!
BUYING TICKETS 🎴🎴🎴🎴🎴🎴
Obviously with a maximum of forty people allowed, don't hang around....although we do keep a waiting list and we inevitably get a few last minute cancellations, which with this sized audience we are particularly anxious to fill, so we will take pains to contact you if you do end up on the waiting list.
Likewise if you find you can't come after ordering a ticket please let us know asap.
ALL tickets must be booked in advance by phoning Andy Watkins on 01522 535770 or emailing on firstname.lastname@example.org.
WE HAVE NO CARD FACILITIES. You give us the exact ticket money (or a cheque made out to 'Lincoln Festival') in an envelope on the concert night.
We will need your telephone number/email for track and trace, BEFORE the concert, so we will ask you for this information when you contact Andy to book a ticket.
We continue to have to respond to the current situation by negotiating with artists re concert dates. All are most anxious to continue with our performance schedule. We will update any date changes as they occur.
WHAT IS COMING NEXT?
💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚 Some fantastic acts...yet again. Old ones you love, and new ones we think you will love.
Remember we never book artists unless we have seen them perform.
But please if you see an act you enjoy, let us know. We aim to please and we want to sell our concerts.
and we can't get everywhere.
What was your favourite Nettlehamlive act this year? Who would you like to see come back? LET US KNOW.
And your favourite act from anywhere this year?
YES, WE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT.
So scroll down to the next section to see what we have in store for you......PHIL BEER, CHRIS & KELLIE WHILE, CHRIS SHERBURN.....
