Square poster for Best of our Lives screeningTo kick off the season, artistic director Laura Harling will be hosting Best of our Lives on Thursday 11 June, 7:30pm. An event showcasing some of the brilliant Live performers who have been streaming their own regular live events during Lockdown, including music, comedy, theatre and dance.

The second event falls the eve before what would have been London Pride weekend. On 26 June at 7:30pm we will host an LGBTQ+ cabaret celebration. Your chance to welcome some of the most dazzling stars of the UK and European cabaret scene into you home with pride.

Stepping into July, now in its fourth year Movers & Shakers is back on Thursday 16 July at 7:30pm – an evening of dance by emerging and established artists including Dancer choreographers including MCDC and McAlpine Dance.

“It wouldn’t be summer without the Open-air Shakespeare in Myatt’s Fields Park. Well, as this isn’t possible we thought we’d get the Bard online!

“Join us in ‘(Un) Scene’ on 30 July at 7:30pm when professional actors, directed by co founder of Open Bar Theatre Company, Nicky Diss, will go live having only been given their cues and lines. Not knowing who they will be performing with, perhaps what the play is – what could possibly go wrong?”

Artistic Director of Longfield Hall, Laura Harling says: “In these challenging times it is important to show support to our community and artists and stay connected.”Like all arts venues we cannot say when we will be able to reopen so until then we will produce as many online events as possible.”

All events are streaming free online with donations going to the performers as well as to charity on the ‘Love is Live’ night
