Leicester's Curve Theatre to Remain Closed Until October 2020
Leicester's Curve Theatre has announced via their website, that they will remain closed for performances until Saturday 31st October 2020.
"Following government advice around the COVID-19 pandemic, Curve will remain closed for performances until Saturday 31st October 2020. Although we know this is disappointing, we are working hard to ensure our programme of work and community offer is as strong as ever for when we are able to re-open the theatre. In the meantime, we are contacting all customers and we ask everyone to be patient at this time and to not contact the Box Office - we promise a member of the team will be in touch.
Whilst we miss the spirit, connection and feeling of being together in your theatre, we are pleased to have connected with many of you online over the past few months and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Alongside performances and workshops, we have recently commissioned a number of local artists to create bespoke online content, which we look forward to sharing over the coming weeks. Although nothing can ever replace the thrill and pure joy of live theatre, we hope these online initiatives will help keep theatre alive for you and remind you of happy times at Curve.
Our sincere thanks to everyone who has been so understanding over these last months; we are incredibly grateful to our audiences and community groups for all of your support. We are also indebted to Arts Council England and Leicester City Council, who we continue to work closely with during these difficult times.
We remain committed to ensuring Curve's long term survival and if you can help us, there are a number of ways you can support us to safeguard the theatre's future:
