Louise Boyce, Venue Manager at The Alley Theatre commented ‘ The Alley Theatre is really delighted to be part of the ‘Reconnect Summer Programme’ This is a fantastic initiative to reconnect our Adults with Learning Disabilities and carers in a fun, safe and interactive environment.  I have no doubt events such as these will have a major impact on improving health, physical and social wellbeing.  This will be the first live event The Alley Theatre will hold since reopening again after Covid 19 ease of restrictions and our team really can’t wait to see audiences reconnect and have fun beside Ambrose in the Alley Courtyard.  As per Government Guidelines we will have safety measures in place and numbers are restricted due to social distancing. This is a free event but booking is essential. Please see our website www.alley-theatre or call us on 028 71 384444 to find out more about how we are keeping our customers and staff safe’.
