The Chris Eldred Jazz Trio has had to cancel its concert at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis, on Thursday, March 4 for personal reasons.

A statement from the band read: "We have some rather sad news to pass on to you. Chris Eldred has had some family news, which has caused him great anguish. I fear that the trio will be unable to perform at the theatre on March 4. I understand that this is a huge problem for the theatre and can only apologise wholeheartedly."

Marine Theatre creative director Ian Stephens said: "Our sympathies go to Chris and his family, and we understand that the concert had to be cancelled. This is a real shame.

Tickets had been moving slowly, but have just started to pick up. The last 'modern' jazz event in the theatre sold well over a hundred tickets, so we were hoping for more of the same. We will be offering a full refund to all customers who had bought tickets.
