Although the shops are starting to open this week, details have yet to emerge of when theatre, concert and gallery goers will be able to start booking tickets. However for lovers of creative arts there are exciting opportunities in abundance with The Holroyd Community Theatre near Oswestry, programme of virtual events. Developed in collaboration with local arts organisations, the programme has been curated to  provide audiences far and wide with a weekly programme of virtual creativity and archived productions to enjoy from the safety and comfort of home during lockdown.

Launching the ‘Holroyd Community Together’ project, British theatre and television actor Ian Bartholomew, best known for his role as Geoff in Coronation Street introduced the ‘Leave a Light On’ concept which underpins the programme. Explaining the theatrical tradition of a light always being left on, Ian’s message was that despite the challenge that lockdown is posing to arts organisations across the country with theatres in darkness for the foreseeable future, plans have been made to ensure The Holroyd Community Theatre remains at the heart of its North Shropshire and Welsh Borders community. 

To watch the weekly performances please visit www.hctogether.co.uk. If you would like to get involved in the initiative please contact kelly@theholroyd.com
