'Pompey Pluckers Covid-19 Announcement.

Due to the current government advice regarding Covid-19 we have decided to cancel all gigs and practices until further notice. Given the demographic of our community, the cosy environments that we practice in, and the communities we support we feel this is a sensible decision. We will update you as soon as there any changes. Please stay safe and well and keep plucking!

For enquiries please email with details of who, when, where you'd like us to play, we normally charge a fee and put our charity collecting tin round during our performance - thanks: info@pompeypluckers.org

(We reserve the right to cancel gigs due to Covid-19 situtaion)
