BARRINGTON’S WHITE HOUSE CULTURAL EVENTS POSTPONED THROUGH MAY 15
In an effort to limit community transmission of the Coronavirus and in accordance with guidance given yesterday by Illinois Governor Pritzker to limit larger gatherings (and especially those that involve elderly populations), the Village is postponing all Barrington’s White House cultural events through May 15, effective immediately.
While we are disappointed, we are taking this step in order to ensure the safety and well-being of our guests, our performers and artists, our staff, and our community.
We will be working diligently with our performers and artists to find mutually agreeable dates to reschedule these events this summer. Please hold on to your tickets and they will be honored at a future date. Of course, should you wish to receive a refund, you may request one.
In the coming weeks we will be monitoring the Coronavirus situation and assessing its potential impact on future events this spring. Please stay tuned for more information.
Obviously this is an evolving situation. We will continue to keep you posted as events warrant. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
If you have questions, please contact Barrington’s White House at 224.512.4066 or clibit@barringtonswhitehouse.
