After nearly a year of closure, we are greatly encouraged by the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday of a roadmap to the staged relaxing of lockdown restrictions. We will be working through its implications over the coming days, and will make announcements, as soon as we can, about when we hope to be able re-open Northampton Filmhouse and our theatre auditoriums.
While we support the gradual approach, it is still a long and complicated road ahead before we can safely return to full auditoriums. It is going to be vital that the regional theatre sector continues to be supported by government over the coming months as we work towards doing so.
We are missing our audiences, artists, staff, young people and communities more than ever. We would like to thank everyone for their patience, donations, messages of support and generosity over the last year, and ask you all to bear with us a little longer now that a return to public performances is within sight. We can’t wait to welcome you back.
