Further notice was circulated in the press on 5th February 1918:
Messrs Paterson & Sons beg to intimate that the Music Hall is to be taken over after this date by the Military Authorities under the Defence of the Realm Act.  It has been arranged that the remaining two concerts on February 16th and March 2nd will be given in the McEwan Hall.
The Management desire to make the change as easy and comfortable as possible for the Patrons of these concerts, but regret they will not be able to re-allot individual seats, owing to the complications in present-day ticket-selling regulations.  Divisions of the McEwan Hall have been set aside to correspond with the sittings in the Music Hall, and as the accommodation is most ample, it will not be necessary for Patrons to present themselves beyond perhaps a few minutes earlier than usual, so as to make their selection of seats.  Ticket holders will use the tickets already issued for the Music Hall.  The doors of the McEwan Hall will be opened at 2.30 p.m.  Concert at 3 p.m.

Ticket and/or Programme Price(s): 
Subscriptions for the series of six concerts, 28/-, 20/6, 12/-, 7/6; Single concert Tickets: 5/9, 4/9, 3/3, 2/4; Programme Price: sixpence
