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.

Record-breaking beatboxer SK Shlomo is launching a huge project to help kids and raise money for NHS Charities Together.
Homeskool Beatbox Adventures is a weekly livestreamed interactive show empowering kids and their families to find their true voices and create their own music.
For 30 minutes every Thursday, families around the world will learn new vocal skills from SK Shlomo. Inspired by the success of his critically acclaimed tour show, Shlomo’s Beatbox Adventures For Kids, he wants to teach families in quarantine how to become Superstar Beatboxers and has set up a JustGiving campaign to try to raise £2500 for NHS Charities Together in the process.
Each week SK Shlomo will set families creative challenges to raise money by sharing performance videos of their new skills using the hashtag #beatboxadventures. Over the course of the 6 weeks, the Homeskool Beatbox Adventures community will create an anthem of their own, with its own music video featuring hundreds of families worldwide singing, beatboxing and performing together to celebrate music and to support the frontline workers on whom we all rely so much during this difficult time.
“It’s a show about believing in yourself.” says Shlomo “Finding confidence in your own voice is extremely empowering. That’s even more important when so many of us are feeling disconnected - we don’t know how we can help the world. This project can bring people together, connect the world up and raise funds for the heroes on the frontline who we appreciate so much.”
