Hanger Farm Arts Centre is back with an eclectic autumn of entertainment after an 18 month hiatus due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Household names like BBC DJ Mark Radcliffe and music legend Kiki Dee will be thrilling audiences once again under the beams of the converted 18th century barn in Totton.

The season is even more hotly anticipated than usual, coming on the back of dozens of shows being postponed or cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions over the last year and a half.

This was a hugely difficult time for the Arts Centre, which is run by local charity Minstead Trust to help people with learning disabilities learn skills for work. The building was shut during lockdowns and ran just a few socially distanced shows and events in between, resulting in significant lost income.

Now, with restrictions eased, there are dozens of affordable and accessible shows on offer this autumn, including:

• Magician Tom Brace (26 Sept)
• Broadcaster, musician and author Mark Radcliffe (6 Oct)
• Richard Digance (29 Oct)
• 1970’s comedy theatre show, ‘Abigail’s Party’ (11 Nov)
• Musicians Kiki Dee and Carmelo (26 Nov)
• Tribute act, Abba’s Angels (27 Nov).

Kyle Maxwell, Hanger Farm Arts Centre manager, said: ‘We are thrilled to be back up and running properly. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us through this tricky time. This autumn we are back with a bang, with some great shows lined up, from side-splitting comedy, to top class theatre and fun family entertainment.

‘We are following the industry-wide ‘See it Safely’ guidelines, so you can feel confident and safe knowing that Hanger Farm Arts Centre is following all necessary Covid procedures. We hope you will find plenty to entertain you as the nights out also help change lives. We look forward to seeing you soon.’

Hanger Farm Arts Centre is a popular local venue that is accessible to all, affordable and boasts a café bar, free parking and art gallery.
