Oh Yeah Music Centre Update on Covid-19 Concerns

With the ongoing developments and concerns about Covid-19 we wanted to let you know about the additional cleaniness measures that we have implemented. The health and welfare of Oh Yeah’s staff, tenants, visitors, (we should add- participants, audiences, volunteers, facilitators and other centre users is our top priority. 

Here are the measures that Oh Yeah staff are undertaking to help prevent the spread of the virus and help protect users of the centre.

·       The frequency of our normal cleaning schedules have been increased, and additional measures are being taken in our rehearsal rooms.

·       “High-touch” surfaces such as door handles, lift buttons etc are now being treated with additional disinfectant throughout the day. 

·       Our public bathrooms are fully stocked with soap and signs have been placed throughout to instruct on safe hand washing techniques

·       We have implemented a non hand shake policy in the centre

·       Visitors are being asked to wash their hands upon entry to the centre

·       We would encourage customers to please pay by contactless debit or credit card where possible

We are taking instruction from Government and the Public Health Agency and as such we remain open as normal at present. We recognise that due to conflicting information and the fluidity of the situation this may change and as such we will update in due course.

Getting To Know… Kathryn Joseph

The Oh Yeah Music Centre is proud to welcome acclaimed Scottish singer / songwriter Kathryn Joseph to Belfast as part of our regular series ‘Getting To Know…’ – a deep dive into the writing and recording processes of a given act and an open forum for audience exchange. Expect discourse, performance and surprise.

Kathryn made her Belfast debut at Out to Lunch Festival in January 2019 and we are delighted to welcome her back for a deep dive into her process, her plans for the future and her interesting past which has so far included winning Scottish Album of the Year, releasing records on ‘Rock Action’ records famously owned by Scottish post rock gods Mogwai, supporting The Cure and Neko Case. She is a true artist, an innovator and explorer and on the night she will be joined by BBC Presenter and music devotee Joe Lindsay who will offer up the questions and help uncover the roots of her practise.

Tickets are FREE but strictly limited – first come first served. This is a fully seated event.
