Following the success of The Brunton’s online pantomime Rapunzel, The Brunton Theatre Trust is keen to continue offering you a chance to enjoy cultural experiences from home, whilst the venue remains unable to open. A spokesperson for the Theatre Trust said:
“Arts and culture experiences play an important role in our wellbeing. Sadly The Brunton is currently unable to welcome people in to the building, so we very much want to provide these classical concerts as a way to digitally connect with people during this lockdown. We hope these concerts will provide an oasis of calm and escape in the middle of the day.”
As The Brunton currently remains closed, the Trust are continuing to appeal for donors to help support them to survive, thrive and continue to bring a programme of arts and entertainment to East Lothian and beyond. Donations can be made via The Brunton’s website www.thebrunton.co.uk .
