An arts venue in St Leonard’s Road said it will continue to ‘work together with everyone in the community’ to overcome the pandemic as the country enters a second national lockdown.
All activities at the Old Court alongside the Screen cinema are now off sale and the venue will be contacting residents with pre-booked tickets.
Martin Denny, director of the Old Court, said: “We are not going to reschedule for December yet, and will see where we are later in the month as to whether that looks to be a good idea, rather than rescheduling and postponing again.”
Last month the venue received a £83,000 grant in the Government’s Cultural Recovery Fund.
Martin added: “We remain keen to work together with everyone in the community we serve to do our best to overcome the impact of Covid-19, and we hope that this period of lockdown will allow for a brighter future.”
The Old Court will publish a forthcoming programme which will be available for sale when it is clear it can reopen.
