Following government advice about Coronavirus, Cornerstone Arts Centre is currently closed to the public. Visit our blog post for more information on this closure: here.
Cornerstone Arts Centre is still Didcot's community hub even in this unprecedented time where we can't be physically open. We will continue to illuminate theatre, visual arts, community spirit and everything else under our umbrella in the best way we possibly can online.
For a while, our website is going to look a little different. We are creating pages with details of our new digital initiatives including virtual galleries, streaming theatre and bringing classes into your living rooms so you can enjoy us even during this period. We will continue to be a community resource and we look forward to seeing you again in person when this is all over.

A lockdown live stream of Mark Thomas' 2012 multi-award-winning play.
A chance to catch Mark Thomas’s most poignant and most personal show about his father, a self-employed builder with a passion for opera, his degenerative illness, and Mark’s attempt to put an opera on in a bungalow in Bournemouth. It is about love, death, fathers and sons, and the search for peace in an imperfect world, with a few gags thrown in for luck.
Having been first commissioned by London’s prestigious Royal Opera House in 2012, Bravo Figaro went on to sell out at that year’s Edinburgh Festival, winning Mark his first Scotsman Fringe First Award alongside a Herald Angel Award and countless five and four star reviews. It was also broadcast on Radio 4 in 2013 and this spring Mark toured it in both Australia and New Zealand.
After the show, there'll also be a virtual Q&A session.
Please note, there will be a 10-minute break between 7.55 and 8.05 to clap for carers.
