So, after over four months of lockdown, we are over the moon to announce that The Sunset Lounge is BACK!
Now, before you all lose your shit, we want to be very clear on how we intend to bring it back slowly and safely.
As live music is still prohibited inside pubs and venues, we have made the decision to run The SSL, acoustically, so no PA, in the sheltered outdoor area of The Cannon – Newport Pagnell, which has enough safely spaced seating for up to 40 people. Because of this limit, the punters for our night will be on a first come first served basis, so please make sure you are there in plenty of time to get a seat. The numbers will also be closely monitored by the staff at The Cannon, so if people leave at any point in the evening, then there will, of course, be space for others.
With regards to acts, for now, we ask that all acts that want to play, please message us via our page, to book a slot. Please don’t just turn up on the night without booking. Our timings, because of noise, have also changed from 9-11 to 8-10. With this in mind and with the pre-booking system we have in place, we are putting a limit on ten acts per night. So again, get in touch as soon as you can to secure your slot.
We appreciate that this is far from the norm of what The SSL is and we have all missed it dearly, but for now, we feel that this is the best and safest way to start bringing it back and to start giving local musicians a place to come and perform live again.
We hope you are all looking forward to this as much as we are and we hope to see as many of you beautiful people there as possible next Thursday!
Much love, stay safe and spread the word x
