Looking to a shared future
As we move into Summer, we stay in close contact with the arts and culture sector and The Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) for all the latest advice and guidance. It might be that our programme of events looks a bit different for a little while as we move into the future in a creative and safe way!
When we do reopen our doors, we’ll make sure that the safety of our participants and audience is our first consideration and that we are closely following Government guidelines.
We know how important connecting with one another is. From our audiences to our Youth Theatre members through to our incredible volunteer usher team, artists, theatre companies and staff, we've all shared some incredible experiences at The Berry Theatre.
Can you help?
We’re appealing to all storytellers to create a work that will bring a smile to the face of residents who are being hit hardest by the coronavirus lockdown.
Through our Tell Us A Story Connection Point project, we’re asking aspiring authors of all ages to come up with a short story that brings some hope, humour and happiness into the lives of people who are feeling most alone during this difficult time.
