The Show Must Go On, as Local Venues Launch “Lockdown Live”

Two local theatres are keeping us entertained, even while the doors are closed.

King George’s Hall and Darwen Library Theatre are launching a new initiative to keep us entertained until singers, bands and performers can return to the stage. Blackburn & Darwen Lockdown Live launches this Sunday.

If you have honed a new or existing talent during lockdown which you would be willing to share online then read on! This is your opportunity to join in and perform in the Blackburn & Darwen Lockdown Live.

We want to see everything creative you have been doing during lockdown, so whatever your talent, you can star in a Lockdown Live gig. Singers, performers, bands, dancers, comedians, choirs, impressionists…in fact, anything from circus skills to poetry & storytelling.

The first “Lockdown Live” gig will take place this Sunday on Facebook at 8pm with a range of local bands who are sharing their lockdown performances. The first event features performances by The Boutiques, Teri Birtwistle, QueenEsque, Tiny Echoes & Paul Tierney.

How to Take Part in Lockdown Live

Record your video content (landscape please) and send it by email to lockdownlive@whatsonblackburn.com. You can also send existing online content by emailing the links. Content should be between 1 minute and 5 minutes long and should include a whole performance. Make sure you keep in clean too…no content with bad language!

By emailing content you are agreeing that it can be used in a Lockdown Live gig, so please make sure you have permission to send any of the content too. Not all content will be used.

Star with a Star

We’re talking to artists with connections to our venues, so you could even find yourself sharing our virtual stage with your idols too.

It’s time to get creative, have some fun and become a Lockdown Live Star!

he shows are between 20 and 30 minutes and can be found on Facebook:
