Coronavirus Update May 2020

As the current coronavirus crisis continues, acta is doing all it can to respond to the changing needs of our community – staff, participants, audiences and locality. The health of all remains our top priority, and we are complying with government guidance during this period of Lockdown.

In the end, acta’s whole aim is to bring people together to make connections, make friends and make original theatre – obviously hard to do when you can’t actually bring people together into the same space. However, we will support everyone to the best of our abilities, and are thinking creatively about how to deliver a service.

Although the actacentre remains closed, we are delivering some workshops online, and ensuring that we stay connected with our participants and groups. See our Creation in Isolation project for further details.

We have also launched a participant newsletter: let us know if you know any participants who have not yet received their copy? Or join the acta mailing list to receive the monthly newsletter and follow our news on social media channels (see below).

We will continue to monitor the situation closely, and will update the website with new developments to our programme over the next few months.

Please get in touch in the meantime if you have any questions, or need to discuss anything further? We sincerely hope you all keep well and safe, and looking forward to seeing everyone again in due course.
