Blog » February Concert Diary

31 Jan  

A slightly different look to the concert round-up this month. Some will notice that the information here is presented in a very similar way to CT's own concert listings page. The plan is, from next month, to post the information there instead. I will write a blog indicating when the page has been updated. This will then become the hub for all those looking for contemporary music concerts.

 

Members are, of course, encouraged to post concert information there too. Alternatively, if you have suggestions for inclusion, do get in touch.
