Friends of the Eastgate logo

Catriona Lyon, Chair of Friends of the Eastgate, introduces the new #eastgateathome campaign with a short welcome message. Created to keep the Eastgate Theatre very much in people’s thoughts during its temporary closure, the campaign features a variety of creative and visual arts, spoken word, music and humour produced by the vast array of creative talent found locally – all of whom have close ties with the theatre.

Do have a listen to Catriona’s message below and look out for the weekly postings. Catriona’s message, and the many clips that follow, are held on the FRIENDS’ YOUTUBE CHANNEL, so be sure to keep checking back as the bank of films grows and grows.
