Following a year almost devoid of music, comedy, dance, drama, family events and festivals, Portsmouth Guildhall is urging people to support their local entertainment venue this Christmas and gift their loved ones an injection of good times to look forward to in 2021!
With a huge selection of shows and events to choose from, you are sure to find something that even the most difficult to buy for will love and with the Guildhall’s ‘Book with Confidence’ guarantee, you can be safe in the knowledge that your tickets are protected if Covid gets in the way of your plans.
Opening the year with one of the best Elvis tributes in the World today is Ben Portsmouth’s aptly named ‘The King is Back’, followed by a Winter/Early Spring season that is packed with a host of socially-distanced shows including Rob Brydon, The Joe & Dianne Show, The Story of Guitar Heroes, Johnny Cash Roadshow, Scottish international comedy star; Daniel Sloss, The Simon & Garfunkel Story, Portsmouth Chamber Music season, LOL Stars Off The Telly comedy nights, Paul Young’s Tex-Mex party; Los Pacaminos, Hello Again – Neil Diamond, Dr & The Medics and a tribute to what is arguably Paul Weller’s best period as a songwriter; The Style Councillors.
Further into 2021 an absolute cornucopia of concerts and events is yours to enjoy including Jamie Cullum, Chris Ramsey, The Stranglers, Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, Robert Cray, Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals, Russell Howard, Paul Weller, Elbow, Fisherman’s Friends, John Bishop, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Belinda Carlisle, Deacon Blue, Jools Holland, Jason Donovan, Riverdance, Mo Gilligan and Portsmouth’s very own International Comic Con!
Or if you really can’t decide what your loved ones might like, why not opt for the gift of Guildhall Membership with priority booking for all future shows, access to a private Member’s Lounge and exclusive Member offers and discounts?
For as long as is needed, the venue is certified as adhering to all required Government, Public Health and industry guidelines with an extensive range of Covid Safety measures in place including reduced capacities, social distancing, temperature checks, face coverings, sanitisation stations, contactless systems and enhanced cleaning procedures including the anti-viral misting of the auditorium, having successfully achieved the Society of London Theatre & UK Theatre’s ‘See it Safely’ mark and the ‘We are Good to Go’ accreditation of Visit Britain.
The venue’s ‘Book with Confidence’ guarantee also gives the reassurance that tickets for shows in Spring 2021 will be refunded or exchanged if attendance isn’t possible for any reason due to Covid-19.
Buying tickets ahead for future shows gives Portsmouth Guildhall and the charity responsible for its operation, The Guildhall Trust, the vital support it needs until the venue can return to full operation and with the venue’s Black Friday sale continuing until midnight on Wednesday, there are some great bargains to be had!
Get ahead with your Christmas shopping online from the comfort of your armchair, support your local venue and give yourself and your loved ones something to look forward to in 2021!
