Due to the recently updated government guidance and the country’s move into lockdown, Guildhall School’s teaching has moved online until at least 22 February, and some changes have been made to its planned Spring Season of events.

The four live-streamed Drama productions – Anne Washburn’s Mr. Burns, a post-electric play, Bola Agbaje’s Gone Too Far!, Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information and Maxim Gorky’s Barbarians – have been postponed until the Summer 2021 season.

However, Guildhall School is delighted that Acting and Production Arts students will present a series of self-led solo performances and a contemporary play project filmed in lockdown, which will be shared for free via the School’s website. More information about these projects and other production activity this term will be released soon.

Unfortunately no public broadcasts of Guildhall School musical events can take place until late-February at the earliest. Music students will continue their learning remotely, and Opera and Production Arts students will proceed with work on Jonathan Dove’s opera The Little Green Swallow, with updates to follow in due course.

The School looks forward to resuming its public broadcast series as soon as possible, and until then it aims to share lots of exciting content from the Guildhall community to enjoy online. The Research Works seminars and Real Talk conversation series will continue online as planned.

A selection of highlights from the Autumn Season of events are now available to watch again on Guildhall School’s YouTube channel, with more videos being added over the coming weeks.

Guildhall School appreciates your support and understanding in these difficult times, and looks forward to welcoming staff, students and audiences back to the School as soon as it is safe to do so.
