Since the closure of Cumbernauld’s Theatre venue in December 2019, the Cumbernauld Theatre team and Board have worked tirelessly to protect the interests of the company, its staff and audiences and to deliver its plans to open the new performing arts venue in Cumbernauld in Autumn 2020.
However, due to the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our communities and the announcements from the Scottish Government relating to the four-phase plan for easing the lockdown while exercising social distancing with reduced capacities for cultural venues, the Board of Cumbernauld Theatre Trust has reluctantly taken the decision to delay the opening of the new venue.
Cumbernauld’s new cultural home for theatre, cinema, music, comedy and dance will open as soon as we have finalised the work and installations required to open this state-of-the-art venue and to welcome our audiences and customers through the doors viably, safely and securely.
Karen Moore, Chair of Cumbernauld Theatre Trust said: “It’s been a very unsettling time for everyone in the arts, with so many unknowns, and the timing couldn’t have been worse for the launch of the new venue.
At the same time however, we are delighted to announce that we are developing plans for an exciting alternative Autumn season of artistic collaboration between performance artists and our community in a safe, socially distanced and locally focused participatory programme of work. We are very much looking forward to welcoming everyone into our new venue and to opening a new chapter in the history of Cumbernauld Theatre.”
We are all dealing with a fast-changing situation and paying close attention to Government updates. We will continue to follow Government advice as it is issued and will post updates on our current website homepage, our social media platforms and our e-newsletter service to communicate any news and developments.
