A statement from our Artistic Director
Eastleigh Unwrapped 2020
"We have been keeping a close eye on unfolding developments over the past few weeks and have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s free outdoor festival Eastleigh Unwrapped curated by The Point. We’ve been in discussion with our main funding partner, Arts Council England and Eastleigh Borough Council and who fully support this decision, and the primary focus is now to keep artists, staff and audiences safe."
"We strongly believe in a future together, moving you, and we can’t achieve this without artists and their work. As such, with the invaluable support of Arts Council England we are committed to financially supporting and engaging with all the artists and companies who we’d planned to bring to Eastleigh this summer from all over the UK."
"Whilst we are unable to present their live spectacular shows, artists are now responding to a new challenge; to create something new for us, to share with our Eastleigh Unwrapped audiences on our new website later this year."
"We will be sharing these throughout June, follow our social media channels for updates and let’s keep the celebratory outdoor festival vibe alive!"
