A message from Peter Millican OBE, Executive Chair, Kings Place
Warm greetings to our audience and the whole Kings Place community,
After many months of closure, during which time we were forced to suspend the programme and lose valued members of our team, we are pleased to announce a partial reopening from mid-September. We cannot wait to welcome artists and audiences back to our halls again.
Firstly, and most importantly, a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in this difficult time and helped to get us to this point. We have been profoundly touched and inspired by your generosity and kind messages. We have received more than £35k in ticket donations, which we have shared with our artists and speakers, and more than £50k in individual donations, matched by a generous donor, as a result of our #SaveKingsPlace campaign.
Secondly, I want to reassure you that meticulous preparations have gone into making Kings Place a covid-secure venue: we have all the cleaning, social-distancing and audience management processes in place to ensure your safety. Read our safety information for more detail. For those who don’t yet feel ready to come in, an exciting virtual Kings Place is emerging: we have been developing a bespoke new streaming platform, KPlayer, so that our audience can experience in-hall events streamed live at home.
This crisis is far from over. Social distancing means we have lost 70% capacity of our halls, which cannot be sustained for long. As a self-funded venue, we remain in a fragile position, and will continue to need more support to plan a future.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Kings Place,
Wishing you all good health
