The Venues

Lowdham Village Hall

Most concerts in Lowdham Village Hall are held on a Friday or Saturday evening, and the usual start time is 8.00 pm. We hold monthly concerts in the period from September to March plus one or two that are linked to the Lowdham Book Festival in June and an occasional ‘special’. For most events the Hall is set out in cabaret style and the capacity in this format is 180-200, slightly reduced if we use the extended stage to accommodate larger bands. Except when advised, the audience is invited to bring their own refreshments – alcoholic or otherwise. Complimentary hot drinks are available both before the concert and during the interval.

A seating plan is drawn up a day or two before each concert to enable friends to sit together, even if tickets have been purchased at different times. In principle, seating is allocated on the basis of the earlier the booking, the nearer to the front you will be. But we can – and have in the past – accommodate requests to sit nearer the back!
