Contact is closed, but our plans, events and projects carry on.

Like other theatres and arts venues across the UK, we remain closed during the current pandemic. However, we still have plenty going on during this time, so we’ve put together this round-up page with all the details.

Live Shows

While we had to cancel the last of our Spring 2020 Contact in the City Performances, we have been collaborating with various other organisations to bring live performances to your homes and screens.

Young Identity: One Mic Stand – Online

In April, we hosted the first ever One Mic Stand as an entirely online event, featuring special guests, slam competitors and an interactive audience.

Fuel + Love Letters Straight From Your Heart

This 5* show celebrating the music, dedications and declarations of love ‘tours’ virtually to Contact on Wednesday 27 May.
