Watch, from anywhere in the world, in online groups if you want, in the safety of self isolation. Audience can request favourite songs, and comment in real time. (You can also watch on catch up, but you won’t be able to put in requests). All we ask is that you make a donation (suggested amount: £5, but whatever you can afford). It won’t be behind a paywall.
