Coronavirus Update

(Updated 17 March- 11am)

Following yesterday’s announcement from the government we have made the difficult decision to cancel all our shows and workshops this week. We will be contacting all audience members, participants and artists as soon as we can.

  • You can choose to swap your ticket to a future Strike A Light event- we can credit your customer account and you can then book using this credit in future.
  • You can choose to donate your ticket to Strike A Light we will contribute your donation to our ticket campaign so that in future a child in Gloucester can see a show for free.
  • If you do not want to do any of the options above then we can offer a refund for your ticket.

    To arrange this please contact info@strikealightfestival.org.uk with the name your tickets were booked under, the event name, the number of tickets and what you’d like to do.

Behind the scenes we’re working together with artists, companies & tutors and keeping up to date on the latest guidance. We’ll post updates on our social media.

Thank you for your support in these unprecedented times.

We believe that with the combined creativity of the Strike A Light family we can find some ingenious ways to keep you entertained over the following months.

Keep in touch & stay safe!

Lots of love from the Strike A Light team 🔥

Audio Coronavirus update: 17 March

(Updated 16 March- 3pm)

To our brilliant Strike A Light audiences,

We’re looking forward to seeing you at our events this week and wanted to check in and let you know that we’re still going ahead as planned. We’re keeping a very close eye on government updates regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) and will share updates about future events via our social media channels and direct to ticket bookers via email.

We understand that everyone’s experiences and responses to something like this are different and so if you don’t feel you want to attend or are self isolating then we can offer the following options:

  • You can choose to swap your ticket to a future Strike A Light event- we can credit your customer account and you can then book using this credit in future
  • You can choose to donate your ticket to Strike A Light we will contribute your donation to our ticket campaign so that in future a child in Gloucester can see a show for free.
  • If you are ill or self-isolating and do not want to do any of the options above then we can offer a refund for your ticket.To arrange this please contact info@strikealightfestival.org.uk with the name your tickets were booked under, the event name, the number of tickets and what you’d like to do.

We have been working to ensure that extra hygiene measures are in place for our events. In uncertain and anxious times, theatre can provide a much-needed boost and escape. We would like to thank our audiences for supporting us in this unpredictable time and for taking personal responsibility for their health and heeding hygiene advice.

We want to share again this useful government advice:

  • If you develop a fever or a new persistent cough you should stay home and self-isolate for seven days and visit 111.nhs.uk for further advice.
  • If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.

We look forward to welcoming you to a Strike A Light event soon!

Jess and the Strike A Light team
