This morning, the National Theatre announced that it will be screening its acclaimed award-winning production of War Horse to theatres and cinemas throughout the UK.
Bedford’s Quarry Theatre at St Luke’s is among venues showing the ground-breaking production on 11, 12 and 14 November.
Tickets go on sale today (Thursday) at 2pm on the Quarry Theatre’s website. Numbers are limited due to government guidelines on social distancing.
Theatre manager, James Pharaoh, said, “Ever since registering as an NT Live exhibitor we’ve always hoped to be able to screen this sensational production.
“We have booked in three screenings but I suspect we may need more. It is such an incredible production and one of the most famous of the National Theatre’s repertoire so it should bring in the socially distanced audiences.”
As a result of the global coronavirus pandemic, Bedford’s cultural venues have been closed since the end of March, with theatres, music venues and museums tentatively reopening with social distancing measures in place.
Esquires will reopen with a series of shows throughout November and December, with the first announcements selling out in just a few hours.
