There are currently no statutory requirements with regard to Covid and we are being a little more relaxed about numbers. However, Music on the Levels has an informal booking system to help provide a comfortable and enjoyable experience for everyone and give an indication of how many cakes to bake! However, if you have not booked by the time of the concert, there may still be room for you.
