Want to know how you can help the theatre industry in 2021?
The theatre industry has faced an incredibly challenging year, with venues closed for the majority of last year.
Given a glimmer of hope towards the end of 2020, West End shows relaunched with a smattering of performances for those lucky enough to swipe-up a ticket to see a socially distanced production.
Now emerging into the new year, hurrah, the end of the pandemic is in sight – if a little way off.
The vaccines give us some much-needed hope that our lives will be largely back to normal by Easter. By which time, 30 million of those most at risk should be vaccinated. Who knows what might happen next but, based on current assumptions, you should once again be able to see your favourite shows and must-see productions with confidence.
Thus, now is the time to play your part and support the theatre industry at a time when it needs your support the most.
Our friends at Official London Theatre, operated by Society of London Theatre (SOLT), have been overwhelmed by the number of people asking how they can help to support theatres, shows and theatre professionals. If you too are wondering how you can help, here are five ways you can show your support from the comfort of your home.
