For the festival or event’s Without Walls programme, please check the What’s On page.
Our partners have been responding to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic in a variety of unique and creative ways, and you can explore a range of exciting programmes and events using the links below.
From increasing digital offerings and streaming online performances, to transporting high-quality art and theatre into your own homes through DIY creative packs and online dance classes, there are many ways you can still engage with the Without Walls network.
We are proud to be partnered with so many strong and resourceful partners that are adapting to the situation and ensuring that arts & culture can still be enjoyed by our audiences.
