Canford places literacy at the heart of learning, Head of English, Richard Redwood, recommends inspiring reads for 16 year olds and the Canford library launches new systems to keep Canford Covid-secure.
August is traditionally a ‘dark’ month for the theatre, when the bulk of the essential maintenance of our systems and equipment is undertaken.
In the light of this, the recent government announcement that live indoor performances can recommence in England with social distancing measures in place will not apply to the Layard in the short term.
As Canford School reopens in September, we will work to minimise risk and implement ways to viably resume operations for our school and our commercial activities, whilst keeping our staff, pupils and patrons safe.
The government has stated that they “will not hesitate to put on the brakes if required, or continue to implement local measures to help control the spread of the virus”
Within this ongoing and changeable context, we are optimistic about finding ways to welcome audiences back to the Layard, and will let you know as soon as this becomes possible.
We thank you for your continuing interest in and support of the Layard, and hope that you stay safe and well until we see you again.
