Earthbeat is a theatre company consisting of 84 adults, each of whom has a learning disability. We provide a service that offers a range of activities designed to develop confidence, raise self-esteem and to give a sense of purpose.
Earthbeat - corona response
Following the recent Government advice that ‘Everyone should avoid gatherings and crowded places, such as pubs, clubs and theatres’ we have decided to close Earthbeat for the time being.
This advice is particularly relevant as the Government has also said that ‘Adults with learning disabilities and other adults who would normally be advised to have the flu vaccine’ should also be shielded from exposure to the virus. Many of our performers have underlying respiratory, cardiac or other health problems so we are obviously in the ‘at risk’ category.
We will, of course, keep you informed but we anticipate this closure will last between 12 and 16 weeks. This will obviously have a profound effect on both our performers and their parents and carers. We apologise for this but find ourselves in position that leaves us no other choice.
We will contact you when we are given the green light to return but in the meantime we will post information on our Facebook page and on our website
Please look after yourselves and we look forward to a return to normality in the summer
