The OUTDOOR sessions! And what's next...
Rock The Tots is performing OUTDOORS!
What an incredible few weeks. In August we were able to do outdoor gigs in Trowbridge, Swindon, Corsham and Bristol, and all were very well attended and A LOT of fun!
Our huge thanks goes to the venues that took a punt on us and hosted us - Trowbridge Town Hall, Swindon Summer Bowl, Pound Arts and Lakota Gardens. And an even bigger thank you goes out to those of you who came to see us. Thank you for buying tickets, supporting us, and coming along with your party spirit. You are all awesome!
So what's next? Well, as you may know, we are now allowed to perform indoors in venues, provided all measures are put in place in regard to COVID safety.
To that end, we have been having a chat with a few venues about how indoor performances may work, and we are hoping to bring you at least 3 session towards the end of September. More news very soon!
It may be that, for the next few months, we are not able to run quite as many shows as we were pre-Lockdown, but we will try and aim for larger venues where it is easier to be sat in a social distanced manner.
WATCH THIS SPACE!
Earlier this month the Government allowed performers to gig outdoors, as long as social distancing is observed. So here at Rock The Tots we have not hung about!
We have collaborated with the wonderful pop up venue Swindon Summer Bowl, and our first gig with them is Thurs 20th July. Circus marquees with individual pods, this venue is a fab way to enjoy some entertainment whilst still maintaining social distancing.
You can buy your tickets through the venue, HERE.
We are hoping to bring you a few more outdoor gigs in the coming months, so do keep an eye on our website and social media.
As yet we still don't know what will be happening with our indoor gigs going into Autumn / Winter, but we are working hard to make sense of the ever changing legislation, and will let you know as soon as we can.
First Online Ticketed Gig... DONE!
Last week we had our first, proper ticketed event since Lockdown began. Seaside themed, we had a lovely audience who sent us great comments throughout and we all had a great time!
If you missed it, you can watch it back by purchasing HERE.
Going forward we will be bringing you new themes and content each month, with 2 live online gigs - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You can also watch these back any time!
Buy your online gig tickets for July HERE - the theme this month is TRANSPORT - beep beep!
Going forward, depending on social distancing rules, we are hoping we may be able to present some in person, open-air gigs in conjunction with some of our regular venues... watch this space.
Moving gigs online...
Well, what a strange few months it has been!
Since March 2020, and the Covid19 Lockdown, like many small businesses Rock The Tots has had to think creatively about how to deliver our services. We were one of the first baby groups in the Bath / Bristol area to Live Stream our content from our home, and it has proven to be a hit! Not only have we been able to give our regular audience members some consistency and entertainment with these 'Online Gigs', but we have also gained new followers - in places such as Manchester, Newcastle and even as far as Australia!
We want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all our regulars who have continued to join us on this journey online, and have donated into our virtual 'tip jar', often week on week. Your loyality and kindness has meant more than you'll ever know.
We also want to say a BIG HELLO and WELCOME to all our new audience members! We hope you have enjoyed our online gigs and will continue to join us for future events.
For now, it looks like we are going to have to stick to bringing our fun and frolicks to you in a virtual way. We are now doing scheduled gigs on a ticketed basis at £5 per houshold, and you can purchase these tickets HERE.
