HOLY Trinity Church in Bradford on Avon is to take one of three of the concerts moved because of a structural issue at the nearby Wiltshire Music Centre, the others have been relocated to St Margaret's Hall and the Corn Exchange in Devizes.

The church will host the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra concert on Friday, September 20 at 7.30pm. Another concert from Irish folk icons Dervish will be held at St Margaret's Hall on Saturday, September 21 at 7.30pm, and a Cory Band brass band concert on Sunday, September 22will be held at the Devizes Corn Exchange.

The centre hopes to re-open its auditorium by Friday, September 27 following work on a structural issue which has forced its temporary closure.

The centre was forced to close the auditorium earlier this month because of an issue relating to the fixtures for its retractable acoustic panels.

Managers have had to find alternative venues for three forthcoming concerts.

All tickets for the performances will be valid at the replacement venues, and the Wiltshire Music Centre box office is currently in the process of contacting all ticket holders to advise them about the relocation of their event.

It did not affect a jazz workshop on Saturday with Mike Daniels of the Wiltshire Youth Jazz Orchestra which took place in a rehearsal room.

Chief Executive Maud Saint-Sardos said: “Everyone at Wiltshire Music Centre is extremely grateful to our audience members, partners and artists for all the support and understanding we have received during the temporary closure of the Auditorium, and we thank everyone for their patience during this period of uncertainty.

"We are very pleased to be able to offer alternative venues for our opening weekend but apologise for any inconvenience caused.

"We look forward to opening the Autumn Winter season this weekend, reopening our wonderful Auditorium and returning to normal operations by Friday 27th September.”

In a statement, centre spokesman Scott O’Hara said: “Our first priority has been to guarantee the safety of the auditorium but we have also worked hard to ensure that disruption has been kept to a minimum in terms of the delivery of our concert programme.

“Alternative venues have been secured for our opening concerts next weekend."
