The Society of London Theatre (SOLT) is an organisation that works with and on behalf of their Members to champion theatre and the performing arts.
Jon Gilchrist, incoming Joint President of UK Theatre (from 2022 AGM) and Executive Director of HOME, Manchester, is appearing on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row tonight to discuss the current state of affairs in regional theatre as we head towards Christmas
We have seen some brilliant press coverage of the Performance by Rankin exhibition over the past few days, with pieces in The Guardian, The Stage, Reuters, Stylist and many more – and coverage from Sunday Times Culture TV and BBC World Service to be expected soon.
Performance by Rankin – Exhibition now open
Our exhibition with the renowned photographer Rankin is now open at the FUJIFILM House of Photography (8 – 9 Long Acre, Covent Garden) and will run until 31 January. It is free to attend, and we will be accepting donations for the Theatre Artists Fund and the Mayor’s Youth Homeless Charities.
This ambitious project by Rankin is a celebration of the enormous talent and resilience of London’s theatreland and has been created in partnership with FUJIFILM House of Photography, with funding from the Mayor of London as part of the Let’s Do London campaign. From star actors, dancers, writers, directors and producers to stage managers, dressers, designers, technicians, pit musicians, puppeteers, front of house staff, stage door keepers and countless more, Rankin captures a once-in-a-lifetime portrait of a West End reborn, featuring 150 subjects from nearly 60 of London’s top productions and venues.
Thanks again to all of the shows and venues who took part.
