As many have said, and rightly so, these are strange times for everyone. We are now closed pending government advice on re-opening, but during this closure, there have been many familiar faces popping up online, including the ever-popular National Theatre Live!
NT Live productions have always been a favourite with our audiences, and now you can see one of their excellent productions each week, on Thursdays at 7pm, for free on their YouTube channel. The show will then be available to watch for 7 days at any time, until the next production becomes available.
Elsewhere, our friends at Lincolnshire One Venues are posting a new creative challenge for all the family to enjoy each day on their Facebook page! Perfect to keep children engaged over the Easter holidays.
There are plenty of films to watch online too, on various platforms such as BFI Player, Curzon Home Cinema and MUBI, as well as the usual suspects like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Sky. Many independent films have gone ahead with their scheduled release dates and are now available to watch online. Titles such as The Truth, Portrait of a Lady on Fire and Cunningham, are all available to stream now.
We were very sad to cancel our poetry festival Verse too, but a small silver lining has appeared, as headliner Luke Wright is now streaming live poetry sets on their Twitter page every day at 8pm! Don’t miss them.
We’d like to say thank you to all our audiences for their kind words of support during this time, let’s keep the arts alive and enjoy them at home in the meantime. Keep an eye on our social media pages for more at-home-arts, and we can't wait to see you all again when we re-open.
