CEO Statement & Site Operation Update 11/11/2020.

All at Newhampton Arts Centre have been working hard to adapt our site operation to the new national restrictions that came into force on Thursday 5 November. We are disappointed to have to reschedule the live shows planned for this month, and also that most of our courses and classes have had to temporarily cease; though we know this is necessary as part of national and local efforts to control COVID-19.

Our workspaces remain open for residents to access their businesses. WCRfm continues to broadcast community radio for Wolverhampton, and education work continues in the two recording studios as well as with a range of training providers we have at NAC.  

All our activities remain supported by robust cleaning, hygiene and social distancing procedures onsite. We hope to welcome you back to NAC very soon for our seasonal show for families, Mischief and Mystery in Moomin Valley, and for live events in 2021.

Trevelyan Wright.
