COVID-19 Statement 2nd April

We are thankful for all the messages of support that we have had in response to us postponing all our current off-site shows and learning projects. We have taken the difficult decision today to furlough some of our key staff on full pay and I thank them for their understanding and professionalism at this very difficult time. 

We will be operating with a skeleton staff over the next few months, please continue to stay in touch with us but it may take us longer to respond than usual. We are intending for our current projects with artists and freelancers to continue when the situation improves. 

The construction on site of the new Brixton House theatre stopped last week as the builders were unable to safely comply with the social distancing guidelines. We fully support this decision and are pleased that some of the construction staff have been redeployed to key NHS projects at this time for the country.  We are announcing today that we have delayed the opening of the new theatre in Brixton to at least March 2021 and we will keep this under review with our key stakeholders.   

Stay well and thank you for your continued support. 

  

Gary Johnson, 
Executive Director
