Tomorrow’s Premier’s Concert to be virtual only

The Premier’s Concert tomorrow was cancelled tonight - but it will go ahead on a virtual basis.

The move came after tougher health and safety regulations were introduced in the wake of a jump in coronavirus cases.

It had been planned to have close to 50 people at the concert, plus a virtual element.

But the Department of Culture said that the spike forced a decision to move to a virtual event.

A department spokeswoman said: “The Premier's Concert will air online in a virtual format in the near future.”

She said the department regretted the change, but that “the health and safety protocols are a paramount priority”.

The concert was scheduled for last year but was postponed because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event was introduced in 1985 to showcase the island’s artists.
