Cornerstone will keep creating!

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 Christmas Carol: The Haunted Service

Saturday 19 Dec 2020 to Thursday 31 Dec 2020

Tags: Special Event

This year, Goblin & Cornerstone Arts Centre were planning to present a new musical version of A Christmas Carol. Sadly, due to the pandemic, we were unable to do this as planned.  We are instead developing the show into an audio production, which will be released as a podcast just in time for Christmas!

Alongside 5 professional actor-musicians, the recording will also feature a young company from the local community.

A Christmas Carol: The Haunted Service by Charles Dickens, adapted by Matt Borgatti, Will Dollard & Mary Erskine.

Join us for a carol service with a difference. It’s midnight on Christmas Eve, a time where the Ghosts and Ghouls of Christmas come out to play. A haunted choir tell the story of Ebenezer Scrooge. We visit the past, present & future to see if three ghosts can change Scrooge’s ways.

Cast: Victoria Boyce, Matt Burns, Rob Gathercole, Mia Jerome & Miriam Wakeling

The Podcast will be released on 19th December on The Goblin Podcast
