The Prologue Series: A Covid Safe Season

December 2020
New Covid Safe Season Unveiled

After such a devastating year for our sector, we are thrilled to announce a new series of shows starting in spring of 2021.

The Prologue Series: A Covid Safe Season will feature a special selection of one-off evenings including cabaret, comedy, music and drama that reflect the world-class performances audiences have come to expect and love from Hull New Theatre and Hull City Hall.

These will be produced in a socially distanced manner ensuring Covid-secure compliance for our valued patrons, visiting touring companies, performers and staff.

The inaugural Prologue Series, a forerunner to the main programme, will form a wider initiative to promote world-class performance art and culture within the city.

Councillor Marjorie Brabazon, Chair of Hull Culture and Leisure’s Board said “I am thrilled that as our prestigious venues emerge from the pandemic, we are able to provide high quality cultural experiences for all to enjoy’.

Cllr David Craker, Portfolio holder for culture leisure and tourism at Hull City Council, said:

“I am delighted that we will soon have events returning to Hull New Theatre and Hull City Hall. It has been a difficult year for everybody, so it is fantastic that we can have something to look forward to in 2021.”

Janice Wincott, Theatres and Halls Manager for Hull Culture and Leisure, said: “This has been a challenging time for everyone and we appreciate the patience and understanding of all our valued patrons.  We are very much looking forward to resuming ‘business as normal’ in 2021. 

During this first Prologue Series we will be operating with a socially distanced capacity but with the introduction of this new programme and meticulous planning to ensure our venues are Covid-secure, we are very much looking forward to welcoming audiences back into our venues”

“We hope this is the start of what promises to be an exciting year for both Hull New Theatre and Hull City Hall.”

Further details of The Prologue: A Covid Safe Season programme will be announced in January.
