Our 2021 11th Haal Festival is now scheduled to be run on the weekend of 1/2/3 October 2021, when we hope folk will be able to gather again in safety. Most guests previously scheduled for the 2020 event have signed up again for the Oct event.
The meeting will open 30 mins early for a little testing just for those who want to perform.
Keep background noise to a minimum. Zoom will pick up background voices, TV/radio noises, computer fans etc. and amplify them. Headsets are good.
During any performance everyone will be Muted except the performer. Use the Chat window to communicate with text and also use the Reactions. When the performance ends unmute yourselves to cheer and applaud
If all goes well we will also live stream the meeting to our YouTube Channel. You’ll be able to watch from there if you prefer.
