In just over two weeks time, the Quarry Theatre in Bedford will reopen for the first time in six months.
Bedford’s theatres and other cultural venues closed as part of the national coronavirus lockdown in March, with many still not able to welcome visitors back.
However, the Quarry Theatre team has been hard at work making the venue Covid-secure and on Friday 16 October, the theatre will host a film screening of the 1922 horror film, Nosferatu, with a live score.
Film composer, Chris Green, will be performing his score for the 98-year-old German silent film live for the grand – but socially distanced – reopening.
This will be followed by MR James’ Ghost Stories, told by Robert Lloyd Parry.
Due to social distancing restrictions the capacity has been significantly reduced so theatre director, James Pharaoh suggests booking early to avoid disappointment.
“We are all thrilled to get our theatre open next month,” said James.
“We have followed all the guidance to make everybody’s visit as safe as possible and look forward to welcoming people back to a mixture of live performances and screenings.”
