In these testing times life is challenging. For all of us.

With the Government’s decision to close schools from today Fred Theatre has cancelled the remainder of this year’s tours. We had hoped to run through till Easter as planned.

This is disappointing all round, but understandable.

The past couple of years have brought various challenges of their own, but we have enjoyed so much working with schools that throughout I have been determined to keep this work going. This latest set back won’t stop Fred Theatre.

Thank you for your understanding in this most difficult of times.

We’re all now avoiding as much social contact as possible, not stock piling, and I am very happy to report all well.

I hope you and your families and schools stay well. I know with the kind of caring you give everyday spreading through our communities we can and will get through this.

Robert Ball, Artistic Director
