Coronavirus and the Corn Hall
As you know, national Lockdown rules currently apply in England. Individuals are required to stay at home, only leaving if necessary.
Performing arts venues and cinemas like the Corn Hall are required to close to the public. To date we have received no indication from the government as to how long the current restrictions will be in place and as such the Corn Hall must sadly remain closed until further notice.
Community activities continuing
We are doing what we can to alleviate isolation, provide young people with learning and development opportunities and to give support during this difficult time.
- Our TIME WITH FRIENDS dementia cafe is continuing but will now be on ZOOM on the 2nd and 4th Mondays every month. If you are interested in joining or finding out more about these enjoyable free support sessions, please email: [email protected]
- Our free weekly ACTNOW! sessions for local 16-24 year olds have also moved onto ZOOM. The sessions are a chance to build confidence, learn new skills, gain useful work experience and have fun. Click here for more information or email: [email protected]
- We also hope shortly to restart Arts Award also using digital technology. For more information about Arts Award click here or email [email protected].
- The Corn Hall Cafe is offering assistance to those in our community who may need assistance with things like collecting shopping or picking up prescriptions. If you, or someone you know needs help, message our Facebook page here.
Screenings and performances due to happen during Lockdown are unable to proceed. Where possible we will reschedule events. In many cases we are waiting for a guide on when reopening will be possible before fixing new dates.
If you have tickets for a forthcoming show and we have your contact email we will be in touch to keep you informed about the event you have booked for. If you do not hear from us, or you have a query, please feel free to contact our remote BOX OFFICE by emailing us at: [email protected] and we will get back to you.
You may also phone the Box office and leave a message on: 01379 652241. Please state your name and telephone number clearly.
Please Note: this number is not manned daily during the current restrictions and our response may take some time.
We very much hope that it won’t be too long before we can welcome you back into the Corn Hall but until that time we wish you all to keep safe until better times return.
