A planned Family Music Day in Inverness has been postponed, High Life Highland (HLH) has said.

Due to take place on September 11 in Bellfield Park, a decision was taken following careful monitoring of the evolving Covid-19 situation across the Highlands.

HLH music development officer Norman Bolton said: “Even with strict Covid protocols in place, we have made this decision to ensure the safety and health of those visiting and taking part.

“We want the event to be the very best it can be and with an increase in Covid numbers, we felt it was right not to proceed at this time.

“We appreciate this will be disappointing, but we want to allow the people of the Highlands to concentrate on dealing with local needs, and ensure our staff continue to safely deliver music tuition across Highland schools.”
