As the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues our building will remain closed to the public until Monday 18th May. Our Programme of events here at The Playhouse during that time will now be cancelled. We will seek to reschedule as many of these events as possible in the coming months.
This is not a decision we take lightly, but the health of our audiences, service users and our staff is our upmost priority, and should remain so during such difficult times.
We will continue to monitor the situation and follow advice on the way forward for the rest of our Spring programme after Monday 18th May.
Our staff will continue to work remotely and we can still be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our box office has been in touch with patrons who have already booked for shows to offer a refund or notify them of alternative dates as soon as they become available.
We know that many of our audiences are incredibly committed to what we do as an organisation, and will want to show us support in this challenging time. There are some patrons who have decided not to take a refund, in which case this money will go directly to our work delivering arts in the community.
We thank everyone is advance for their understanding and support, and continue to ask for everyone to look after themselves and each other.
Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favourite artist. Many TV shows and feature films have showcased this extraordinary genius but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all: his art.
Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings will be the focus of Leonardo: The Works, as EXHIBITION ON SCREEN presents every single attributed painting, in Ultra HD quality, never seen before on the big screen. Key works include The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de’ Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others.
This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’s life – his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day – through the prism of his art. To be released on the 500th anniversary of his death, this is the definitive film about Leonardo: the first to truly tell the whole story.Tickets £12 (Includes £1 development contribution)
