If you are thinking about attending the Lockdown Mastered concerts, here’s what you need to know:

How do I get tickets and how much do they cost?

Lockdown Mastered is split into afternoon family friendly events and evening concerts.

Afternoon tickets will be £5 for adults (over 17s) and £2 for children.

Tickets for evening shows will be £10 for adults and £5 for children (over 7s only).

To get your hands on tickets, you must book in advance and this can be done through Wedgewood Rooms via their website – click here for a link.

What safety measures will be in place?

Access to Lockdown Mastered will be strictly by pre-booked tickets only and the team at the gates will be recording each audience member's contact details, in line with Test and Trace guidelines.

Ticket-holders will be allocated a numbered bubble area on the grass in advance.

The well-spaced bubbles will have plenty of room to allow up to six people to sit within them comfortably to enjoy the show.

Public toilets will be available but there won't be any food stalls or bar areas inside the site in order to limit queues and opportunities for people to gather.

Everyone who attends will be asked to comply with all current social-distancing guidelines and advice.

What have the council said?

Cllr Steve Pitt, the council's Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Economic Development and Deputy Leader, said: ‘We wanted to try and bring live entertainment back to the seafront before the end of the summer.

‘We're really pleased to unveil Lockdown Mastered and its brilliant line-up for the whole family. We're taking steps to ensure everyone can enjoy themselves safely - we're creating socially-distanced bubbles across the field that are booked in advance and inviting people to bring along picnics or takeaways from local cafes and restaurants, rather than selling food on site.

‘We'll also have a Test and Trace system in place at the gates.’
