Here For You

In March we put the lights out in our three iconic venues and in April we said goodbye to our 264 furloughed staff. It’s been an emotional time and our thoughts are with our work family and our customers, artists and friends in the cultural sector as we all navigate uncharted territory. We’ve been hard hit. We’re an arts charity, most of our income is self-generated from sales and that’s been wiped out overnight.

Through all of this we wanted to let you know we’re here for you. For April at least we’ve retained a few staff who will be keeping in touch and working hard to make sure we survive the coming weeks and months.

We’re determined to take to the stage again and fight to keep the arts at the heart of community life in the North-east. For now, we won’t have Book of Mormon at His Majesty’s Theatre and we’ll need to wait a while to see Paul Weller on stage at our beautifully refurbished Music Hall but look out for projects online and down the phone. We’ll be in touch with ticket holders about these performances very soon. We’ve also lots of ideas to keep the kids occupied - have you seen our build a theatre project online? And if you’re feeling lonely, join our telephone club and we’ll call you with a story or a poem
