We are now in Lockdown – therefore – the Philharmonic Hall is closed.
Whilst in Tier 2 – the Philharmonic Orchestra (plus guests) continued to perform a series of concerts throughout the season – but had to follow a different programme to that published in the 2020-2021 brochure.
The concerts last for approximately 1 hour – instead of the usual 2.45 – 3 hours. There is no interval. The seats are incredibly well spaced and there are 3 entries and exits to the building depending where you are seated – so social distancing is rigorously adhered to. To browse the new January to March Philharmonic programme – please click link – but please note – all concerts through to 28 February and two concerts by Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir in early March are now cancelled.
If you are unable to attend the live concerts – you can enjoy performances in the comfort of your own home by clicking on the following link – Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra On Demand
Note: The following arrangements will probably still apply when u3a visits to the Phil are resumed. Further information will be added when all restrictions are lifted.
Bookings are taken at the Horizons meetings for this season’s RLPO concerts – the table closes at 11.00am. Each concert booked should be paid for with a separate cheque. Please note: The Philharmonic now requires booking confirmation 4 weeks in advance. So to ensure your seat, please book early. Cancellations will only be accepted up to then. After that, if you cannot pass your ticket to a friend, we will try to resell it at Horizons. If we are unable to do so, there will be no refunds. Anyone finding it difficult to get to Horizons – please contact the Group Leader – Ann Robinson – and arrangements can be made to book by post.
