Amazing experiences during lockdown

Normally, we do stuff live, in-person, in unusual, exciting venues across Gloucester. Obviously, we can’t do that at the moment. But we think it’s more important than ever to keep sharing experiences in this time of isolation.

So here’s a line-up of fantastic creative events and experiences you can get involved in even while we’re in lockdown. And you can also see some of the live, in-person events we’ll hopefully be able to bring back later in the year (depending on government guidance, of course).

We’d also love to hear from you about the sorts of things you want to see happen when lockdown starts to lift.

Sean Mahoney, ‘Boxedin’ – live online

Sean was supposed to be coming to Gloucester to perform live – but obviously lockdown meant that couldn’t happen. So instead, we’re bringing him to you live online! Tune in to watch the full performance.

Collected poems – from Halima Malek

Halima is a Gloucester-based poet and long-time friend of Strike A Light. She’s working with her local community, encouraging people to write and record their experiences of lockdown. We’ll be sharing them on our site soon! Sneak peeks
