New season of Friday night shows features cabaret, dance and performance
Apphia Campbell in Woke
Following 7 months of closure, Watermans has confirmed plans to reopen its theatre on Friday 2 October with the first in a new series of Friday Nights Live.
This eclectic programme brings together all kinds of performance from sultry cabaret to acrobatic dance.
The theatre says it will be Covid-secure with socially distanced seating, enhanced cleaning and face coverings.
Watermans says customers have already commented on how well it has managed its socially distanced cinema, and quotes comments on its social media like: ‘They’ve definitely got the Covid safety measures nailed at Waterman’s and the staff are all so helpful and friendly’.
Watermans’ Director Jan Lennox said, ‘I urge you to support these artists if you can and come and give them a huge round of applause - in person. There really is nothing like sharing the experience with others and I know our whole team is looking forward to that.’
The Guru Tandoori Kitchen at Watermans is open too.
