Can you help?
We are carrying out a survey to help us understand how our digital audiences are engaging with arts and culture online.
If you can spare five minutes, your help will enable us to evaluate the impact of our digital work and to understand how Covid-19 has changed the way people are looking at arts and culture content online.
We'd like to extend a huge and heartfelt thank you to our audiences and friends for the kind emails, social media posts expressing your best wishes, your thanks for our Connection Point programme and for the incredibly generosity you've shown the theatres through your donations, credit requests and for those of you keeping your tickets for events that we are scheduling to new dates in 2021.
