Unity in Lockdown - Unity Theatre

Since Mid-March we have been unable to operate our building as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. In the time that has past we have consulted with artists and audiences to try and best understand how to help you through this period.

The result of these chat’s has seen us launch initiatives like our Resource Centre, Building a Future Support Programme, What’s On(line) Calendar and Artist Hub. You can read all about this here.

This section of our website sign-posts you to all our work throughout this time.
