The National Concert Hall is welcoming back a live audience today for the first time since March

The Irish Chamber Orchestra will perform 'A Christmas Celebration' at 1pm today.

There will be 100 people in attendance at the Dublin venue which has the capacity to fill 1,200.

Public health guidelines will be fully adhered to, with temperature checks and a queuing system in place and only six people permitted to sit in each row.

The CEO of the National Concert Hall said the 45-minute show will be "the first of a test series of things" the venue plans to hold in order to resume a regular programme of events.

Simon Taylor says that the last nine months have been "a frustrating period" but he was looking forward to having a live audience in attendance.

He said: "It's a very small audience, I never thought I would be excited about seeing 100 people in our auditorium.

"But it's the first time for nine months we've had a live audience at all.

"It's very important not just for us but as a signal to the sector going forward that even if things continue with the restrictions, which they're likely to for another six months, that we can get back to some live audiences."
