Speak Cornish Week 2020

This week is Speak Cornish Week! Take a look at the official Facebook page where you can learn a bit of Cornish yourself or join in with one of the many classes and activities on offer. Perhaps you can let us know what your favourite stage show is, in Cornish of course!

For the Love of Arts 

A fantastic collection of moving and inspiring monologues from stars of stage and screen in support of colleagues during lockdown, in aid of the Equity Benevolent Fund. Each monologue is only a few minutes long, make sure you check out these entertaining clips by some well known faces.

Eugenius! The Musical

Nominated for 8 major awards including BEST MUSICAL 2018 at the Off West End Awards, Eugenius! is the most exciting new musical in years.. 

The creators of Eugenious! kindly gave unlimited free access to a recording of their show, performed at The Other Palace for us all to enjoy at home during the pandemic. It has been free to watch but donations to the Acting for Others charity were requested. After thousands of views and over £15,000 raised the time has come for the video to be taken down - so you have until June 28th if you haven't caught it yet. Don't miss out!

Cirque de Soleil

Something for the whole family to enjoy. You can watch several exclusive behind the scenes videos and recorded performances from Cirque de Soleil right here for free on their Youtube channel. 

Quick Watch: Cats in Quarantine

The latest Youtube offering from stars of the stage in their homes during Lockdown. A wonderful compilation of Cats alumni from all over the world performing Gillian Lynne's iconic choreography. Grab a cuppa and watch!

Theatre Streaming Services: Support the Arts Industry during Lockdown

The Independant shares a list of paid theatre streaming services.

Actors including Phoebe Waller-Bridge have written an open letter to the government asking it do more to save the struggling industry. Without being able to go, here's how you can help – and enjoy a show at the same time.

Dance Centred - Physical Postcards

Dance Centred are creating and posting a series of postcards, each hand crafted with fun, curious, beautiful images and fabulous dance and music suggestions. We first shared this project back in week one of our blog and we thought we would share again as we just love the latest post about giving yourself a hug... 

Who needs a hug? I think we all could do with a little squeeze... however during these unusual times and especially when we have to social distance.. why not try giving YOURSELF a hug!

The title of this weeks #PhysicalPostcard is Reach and it's all about reaching out with your body and mind to all the people and things we hold dear... whilst staying safe in your living room!

HFC Youth - Life in Lockdown

Our weekly blog from our HFC Youth participants. This week we hear from Aimee whose school prom has been cancelled due to the pandemic.

Desert Island Discs

The first Desert Island Discs was recorded in the BBC’s bomb-damaged Maida Vale studio on 27th January 1942. It was introduced to the listening public as "a programme in which a well-known person is asked the question, if you were to be cast away alone on a desert island, which eight gramophone records would you choose to have with you, assuming of course, that you had a gramophone and an inexhaustible supply of needles".

Looking for something new to listen to whilst working from home? There are hundreds of old episodes here to make your way through, from lockdown legend Joe Wicks to Broadway legend Lin Manuel Miranda, everyone is in here.
