Diss Cornhall show rescheduling can't take the shine off fantastic fundraising efforts
The Corn Hall has been finding reasons to remain upbeat this week, despite the latest lockdown causing another enforced rescheduling of shows.
The venue in Diss has had to close for six weeks or more, and cannot begin to reschedule its shows yet, as the length of the lockdown is not yet known.
Customers have been reassured that all tickets for rescheduled shows will remain valid when the Corn Hall reopens.
Despite the disruption and disappointment, operations manager Lee Johnson announced this week that the venue’s Big Give Christmas Challenge had raised more than £10,000.
The money will be used to support its outreach sessions, which, along with its Act Now and Time With Friends dementia cafe sessions, are now being carried out online.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge was a fundraiser in December which raised money for art initiatives aimed at supporting isolated, vulnerable or disadvantaged people.
Mr Johnson said: “We won’t be defeated by lockdowns and we will keep going and providing some much-needed entertainment as and when we can safely do so.”
