Belgrade Theatre and Underground Lights participants showcase their lockdown creativity

With lockdown rules restricting indoor gatherings throughout the spring and summer, this year theatres have had to think outside the box to find ways of staying connected to their communities.

Moving activity online is a solution for some people, but not everyone can easily access things like Zoom or social media, and as a result, lockdown has been much more isolating for some people than for others.

Luckily, theatres are full of creative people, and not least the brilliant community participants and volunteers they work with. As such, it wasn’t long before Underground Lights Community Theatre member Hayley Harman had the brilliant idea of putting together “Creative Packs” that could be posted out to people, enabling them to join in with group activities, even if they were unable to get online.
