Wiltshire Creative announce temporary closure

FEB TBC
04 January 2021

Following the Government’s decision to move Wiltshire into Tier 3, with a heavy heart we have to announce that we are obliged to cancel our forthcoming February season at Salisbury Playhouse and to close temporarily Salisbury Arts Centre

The future continues to be challenging, but we are determined to continue offering cultural activity to  the City and county as and when we can. Behind the scenes, our artistic team continues to schedule exciting socially distanced seasons ready to perform at the Playhouse as soon as is feasible. In addition, the Arts Centre will continue to offer a safe and spacious café space, stunning visual art exhibitions and a hub for our community and educational activity as soon as circumstances allow. Whilst Salisbury International Arts Festival will not be able to go ahead in its conventional format, plans are already in place to ensure that music, performance and culture brings the City streets and spaces alive in the summer months for the whole community.

Throughout this extraordinary time, our priority has been to deliver a strong artistic programme, recognising how much culture can act as a necessary balm in difficult times. The enormous generosity of our loyal audiences in donating over £70,000 in ticket donations and charitable gifts has played an invaluable part in helping us to achieve this. Thank you.

We will be reviewing our closure regularly and will reopen as soon as is feasible. Please follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @wiltscreative or check our website www.wiltshirecreative.co.uk for the latest information.

Thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
