Despite our best efforts over the last few weeks to avoid any disruptions to services we’ve had to take the difficult decision to temporarily close Cornerstone Arts Centre and the Nourish café as we need to carry out urgent maintenance work that affects the heating of the building.
January and February are traditionally quiet times for the centre, and we’re hoping to find alternative venues or dates for the events coming up, to keep disruption to a minimum.
We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience and any disappointment following this news, but given the cold weather we’re having, it’s very important to us to make sure we’re looking after the health and well-being of our visitors and staff.
UPCOMING RELAXED PERFORMANCES:
The Adventures of Pinocchio on Tuesday 17th December at 10am.
Cornerstone Arts Centre are proud to program relaxed performances every season. Relaxed performances are created to be a more relaxed presentation of a show, with adapted sound and lighting and minor script adjustments, plus increased wheelchair capacity. Patrons with a learning or physical disability, autistic spectrum condition, or sensory or communication disorder are especially welcome. At every relaxed performance at Cornerstone, we create a 'chill out' area just outside of the theatre which audience members are encouraged to use to relax in this space if they need some time out from the theatre.
Cornerstone is a modern, purpose built space with excellent access for all customers. Click here to find out all you need to know about accessibility and our changing places toilet. This page contains up to date information about upcoming relaxed performances so please check in from time to time if you are interested in relaxed performances.
