Islington Assembly Hall: keeping culture inclusive
Islington Assembly Hall (IAH) is reopening this month and will be able to host shows to a socially distanced audience of 150 customers.
In addition to the live shows, IAH is offering 50 people the chance to win a free live stream to shows including Black Country, New Road, Pop Will Eat Itself (both sold out!) and The Loveless.
Customers who are eligible to win a free stream are people who receive certain benefits, like Personal Independence Payments or Universal Credit, young people aged under 16, those who are clinically extremely vulnerable, or ticket holders that develop Covid symptoms prior to the event.
This is all possible thanks to a grant as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund.
IAH released a statement about the grant saying it was “dedicated to making sure that no one should miss out on these cultural experiences in these difficult times” with the free streams helping to “keep culture inclusive.”
Customers interested in signing up to get one of the 50 free streams can apply by completing this form and specifying which show they want to go to. Three days before the show, IAH will pick 50 customers and send them an email with instructions explaining how to redeem their free stream. The free streams can be redeemed through IAH’s ticketing partner Dice.
