The impact of COVID-19 in our community means that Loop has temporarily closed as part of the containment strategy.
While we wholeheartedly support the need to ‘flatten the curve’, we are acutely aware, and devastated by, what this means not just for our business, staff, and suppliers, but also our artists, musicians, and our audiences.
We will be doing everything in our power to ensure we open in the near future….. when it is safe to do so.
In the meantime, as an artist-led and artist centred organisation, we are currently working on a streaming concept to ensure that we can keep both our music and arts program ticking over. To build morale, lift spirits, and keep people safe and connected- as well as supporting the artists and communities that are our lifeblood at Loop.
We want to extend a kind of life support to artists during these uncertain and challenging times – we can never underestimate the power of art and music.
More on the streaming concept to come soon…..
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
20/03/2020 – LOOP COMMUNITY STATEMENT
As a member of Loop’s community, we wanted to keep you updated about how we’re responding to the COVID-19 situation.
The health and safety of our community is of paramount importance to us at Loop and we have taken precautionary measures over the past several weeks and continue to strictly adhere to all new Government and medical advice. We welcome the government’s new measures as a necessary step to flatten the curve and will be limiting patron numbers accordingly. We take very seriously our moral responsibility to stem the effects of COVID-19 while also looking after local artists and hospitality workers, who are uniquely economically threatened by these changes. With that in mind, Loop will be limiting its open hours to ensure all events can be run to a high standard of safety and will also be phasing out cash transactions. Please check our socials for an updated events calendar.
