Get Involved

While we continue to follow government guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic, in the interests of the wellbeing of our employees, artists, partners and the public, we are taking precautionary measures and have postponed all our public programme until further notice. During this time we are also adopting an optional remote working policy for staff.

We are confident that we can continue to do much of our work outside the usual office environment and are also exploring all the ways in which some of our programmes can temporarily be adapted to take place in a digital or remote space.

Please be assured we are working closely with partners to get a clearer position on longer-term programme and activities and we will stay in regular touch as events unfold.

In the meantime, we fully support the position ACE has taken to best support the sector during these challenging and unprecedented times, which can be found here:

We are reviewing the situation on a daily basis and will post any updates here on our website.

Thank you for your understanding.
