Through our Virtual Programme we continue to connect creatives and audiences within current restrictions. Engaging communities and building relationships has always been key to what we do, perhaps this is more important now than ever.
Our Virtual Programme is a series of events, videos, podcasts and online workshops. You can watch new writing theatre performed by high-profile actors, take part in question and answer sessions, hear interviews with writers, see premieres of new works, listen to community podcasts, and take part in online playwriting, song writing and dance workshops.
We have a varied and growing programme, so make sure you come back to see what's new. In the meantime take a look at some of the highlights below.
