Leicester’s Curve theatre is to remain closed for performances until Saturday 31 October 2020.

A Curve spokesman said, “although we know this is disappointing, we’re working hard to ensure our programme of work is as strong as ever for when we’re able to reopen.

“While we miss the spirit, connection and feeling of being together in your theatre, we’re pleased to have connected with many of you online over the past few months and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

“Alongside performances and workshops, we’ve commissioned a number of local artists to create bespoke online content which we look forward to sharing over the coming weeks.

“Although nothing can ever replace the thrill and pure joy of live theatre, we hope these online initiatives will help keep theatre alive for you and remind you of happy times at Curve.”
