The Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny will regretfully close its doors to the public from 6pm this evening (Thursday), 12th March following government guidelines to prevent the further spreading of COVID-19.
An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar TD announced this morning, in relation to cultural institutions, that indoor gatherings of more than 100 people will not be permitted and a maximum outdoor gathering of 500 people will be allowed. The restrictions will stay in place until Sunday, 29th March.
The RCC will remain closed up to and including Saturday, 28th March, resulting in the postponement or cancellation of the following events and concerts: School Senior Cycle French Film Screening: A Colony (Une colonie); Malojian and Martin Harley.
Nashville-based trio, The Orphan Brigade, who were due to co-headline a concert at the RCC alongside The Henry Girls, on Friday, 3rd April, this week also made the decision to postpone their upcoming tour of The Netherlands and on the island of Ireland.
Patrons who purchased tickets for any of these events will be entitled to a full refund through An Grianán Theatre Box Office.
An Grianán Theatre’s building will also be closed to the public until at least Sunday, 29th March, and therefore enquiries can only be made with the box office by telephone on Tel +353 (0) 7491 20777 during the theatre’s official working hours (times may be subject to change).
