South Holland council seized the opportunity presented by the pandemic to make big changes in the way the Centre was run. When we made a tentative restart in November, we found that the lounge bar which had always been our best option was now an Italian restaurant and the bar prices had gone up astronomically. Cue legitimate complaints from our audience. On the other hand the huge and soulless Function Room did at least lend itself to social distancing. Both Granny's Attic and Pete Morton turned in terrific performances, reminding us how we'd been starved of live music for the last 18 months.
