Social Programme

We’ve cancelled or postponed all the events. If you’ve booked any tickets which you can’t now use, you should contact Steve for a refund. However, there are still things you can do, and a number of Theatres are offering free streaming of their productions.

The National Theatre is streaming different shows every week starting with the feel-good hit One Man, Two Guvnors, featuring James Corden’s hilarious Tony Award-winning performance as the goodhearted, chronically hungry servant Francis Henshall. Go to National Theatre nationaltheatre.org.uk for more information.

The Royal Shakespeare Company has announced Culture in Quarantine with the BBC broadcasting some of its best shows of the last few years including

Macbeth (2018), directed by Polly Findlay with Christopher Eccleston and Niamh Cusack

Hamlet (2016), directed by Simon Godwin with Paapa Essiedu

Romeo and Juliet (2018), directed by our Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman

Much Ado About Nothing (2014), directed by Christopher Luscombe

Othello (2015), directed by Iqbal Khan with Hugh Quarshie and Lucian Msamati

The Merchant of Venice (2015), directed by Polly Findlay

 

And for Children..

There are a huge number of online resources to keep your children busy at home. Here are a few we recommend:

The Dyson Foundation

A series of challenge cards, that are fun and testing.

BBC Bitesize

An incredible amount of Key Stage focussed content for all subject areas. A fave is a really challenging maths game called Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica. Amazing to see how quickly the kids can add and subtract four-digit numbers if there’s a new shield at the end of it.

Pobble365

This ‘picture a day’ website has been great for creative writing each day offering different challenges from diary entries to sentence challenges. The kids also love sneaking a look at the next day’s picture.

Nat Geo Kids

A mix of games, quizzes, videos and free downloadable resources which is perfect for keeping active minds busy.

Social programme

The Winter Social Programme is now in full swing, with some events having already sold out. We do have some tickets remaining for the following events:

THEATRE: ‘MASTER HAROLD AND THE BOYS’ at the Lyttleton, National Theatre.  Monday 16th December. 7.30pm.  TICKETS: £10

In a grubby tearoom in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, in 1950, two years after the start of apartheid, this gentle, but very powerful play explores the the tensions, sadness, anger and humour of those times.

THEATRE: ‘A CHRISTMAS CAROL’ at the Old Vic Theatre. Monday 6th January. 7.00pm. TICKETS: £24

Christmas in London wouldn’t be complete without Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol. This year, Matthew Warchus' smash-hit production of the classic holiday tale returns to London's Old Vic for a limited festive run. There is no better way to get in the holiday spirit than with A Christmas Carol, Dickens’ masterful tale of redemption.

We are now planning the programme for the New Year, and we are hoping to have some reasonably priced opera and ballet tickets to announce for the Spring.
