This year’s #LoveTheatreDay, which celebrates all things stage-related, is to take place on 18 November.
The Twitter event highlights the activities of theatre organisations, helps to forge new relationships, and creates a positive buzz around the art form.
This celebration of theatre comes at a time when its future is under threat, with the threat of cuts posing an uncertain future.
As well as the overall #LoveTheatreDay hashtag, there will be three more to highlight specific areas for discussion throughout the day:
- #BackStage (10am–12pm) offers audiences and other arts professionals a look behind the scenes.
- #AskATheatre (3–5pm) offers the chance to pose questions to individuals and groups working in theatre.
- #Showtime (7–10pm) will offer the chance to experience performances via Twitter.
Theatres or theatre groups which sign up for the event will receive an information pack with tips on how to prepare.
