Welcome to the Hanger Farm Arts Centre virtual stage

While the coronavirus outbreak means that we can’t keep our theatre open, we will be bringing you a selection of acts and performances that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

Help us keep Hanger Farm Arts Centre running by making a donation, so that we can bring you more wonderful shows and acts when it is safe to welcome you back through our doors.

We hope you enjoy our virtual stage.

Let the music play

Throughout the summer and into autumn we will be streaming local bands performing live at Hanger Farm Arts Centre on our Facebook page – you can either watch the events lives, or catch up with them here later.

  • 13 May - The 39 Steps Radio Drama

    Black Box Theatre Company: The 39 Steps – Radio Edit

    Black Box Theatre Company performed this at Hanger Farm Arts Centre as part of their tour last year. Like so many others they have been looking for ways to continue in the current situation and have now recorded this production for you to listen to. It is free to listen to, but they are asking audiences to consider donating a small fee to help them through this period  and as strong supporters of Hanger Farm Arts Centre and Minstead Trust, Black Box have very generously offered to donate 50% of any money they receive. We are incredibly grateful for the support of Black Box Theatre who have already made a donation to Minstead Trust from their recent crowd funding campaign.

    In order to donate, listen to the Show by clicking the “watch on You Tube” button below and find details of how to donate to Black Box Theatre.

    We hope you enjoy the performance.
