Arts Anywhere and for everyone with Point’s packed summer schedule

The Point Eastleigh has more on offer than ever for the (hopefully) warmer months of 2022 with the welcome return of outdoor summer events in addition to a full programme of classes, workshops and community performances inside the building.  

The Unwrapped weekend of free live pop-up surprises – Saturday 11 June at Leigh Road Recreation Ground in Eastleigh and on Sunday 12 June at Greta Park in Hedge End - features another exciting line-up of outdoor theatre, music and dance, as well as a feast of market stalls and festival fun. Audience favourite the Summer Social brings local live music to the Garden Stage every Friday and Saturday in July.

Activities for children and families include After School Club, MegaMake! Cardboard City, half-term workshops, StoryTribe!, Too Good Tuesdays, Performance Picnics and Wonder Gigs. Take Your Turn and join in with Board Games But Bigger, outdoor Saturday yoga, the Watercolour Wellbeing workshop, and inclusive cinema screenings.  

Laughs aplenty are ensured with Jonny and the Baptists, Comedy Network triple bills and stand-up from Mark Watson and Chris McCausland. And you’ll be wowed by the next generation of dance talent from Hampshire Youth Dance Company and Rambert School

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be celebrated with The Queens' Garden Party, featuring drag queens, music and a touch of LGBTQ+ magic in collaboration with Eastleigh Pride, and The Black Kat Boppers will bring the swing with their 1950s Right Royal Rock-a-bout!

Community performances showcasing local talent include: Eastleigh Operatic Musical Society’s Kipps - The New Half a Sixpence Musical; Spot On Productions’ The Sound of Music; Musical Theatre Southampton’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame; Roynon Dance Woolston’s 10; Florian School of Dance’s Over the Rainbow; and Centrestage Productions Youth Theatre’s Little Shop of Horrors.

Live at the Park takes creative events out across the Borough to Itchen Valley Country Park for outdoor theatre family shows Awful Auntie, The Princess and the Pea, War of the Worlds, The Wind in the Willows and King Arthur. Older audiences will enjoy the super silliness of Much Ado About Murder.

The Point Eastleigh is owned and operated by Eastleigh Borough Council.

Charlotte Hall, Creative Director at The Point, said: “We are so excited to celebrate summer, creativity and Eastleigh Borough over the coming months, and our teams have pulled together an abundance of activities for our communities to enjoy with friends and family.

“With so much of our work taking place across the Borough this year, we are delighted to launch Anywhere, a new programme of work encompassing all the creative things that happen beyond the walls of the theatres. We’re working together with Eastleigh Borough Council and Arts Council England to create an Eastleigh for Everyone, making sure that no one misses out on creative experiences.”
