Here For You

Here For You

In March 2020 we put the lights out in our three iconic venues and in April and placed 95% of our staff on furlough. 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. We have 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 are working with our contacts to try and reschedule as many as possible so keep an eye on our show updates page and we’ll be in touch with ticket holders about these performances as soon as possible. We’ve also lots of ideas to keep the kids occupied such as build your own HMT or design an album cover and if you’re feeling lonely, join our telephone club and we’ll call you with a story or a poem.
