Since March, we’ve been finding different ways to keep connecting with audiences at home – we might not be coming Right on your Doorstep for the moment, but we can definitely beam a bit of BTO Right on your Sofa.
Three months since lockdown, and we’ve now hosted 25 events online, all streamed live through our Facebook page. We’ve introduced a regular Monday night bedtime story for families to gather round and watch, a Friday evening gig – music and singers across all genres, poetry, and most recently, a Circus on your Sofa – and artist takeover days from Studio McGuire (our digital partners), The Herd (our associate theatre company), Lydia Caprani (the artist on our Bilton Grange Mural Project and illustrator of our beautiful new children’s activity book for lockdown) and Lost in Translation (one of our circus partners).
On 16 March, our Facebook page was liked by 3373 people. This now stands at 4830 – a huge increase of 1457 purely through digital output – and we’ve had a whopping 81,443 views on all our digital events during lockdown.
Everyone’s welcome to the BTO party, so hop onto our Facebook page and see if you find something you like.
