PROGRAM FOR 2020/2021 (cancelled)

Below you can see the groups we had planned for the 2020/21 season. Unfortunately, with rising case numbers and tighter restrictions, we first decided to cancel all 2020 performances and then the shows we had planned for the early part of 2021. We are keeping in touch with the artists whose performances have been cancelled and we hope to be able to re-book them to come to Creston, as soon as circumstances permit. We included links to their websites and you may visit these.
