The Albany’s ‘Summer in the Garden’ programme will take place in the Albany Garden and features live music, theatre, film screenings and family events.
All performances are ‘pay-what-you-decide’, meaning audiences can choose how much to contribute after attending an event.
Following months of streamed performances and projects delivered remotely, the Summer in the Garden season will see the venue welcome back in-person audiences consistently for the first time since December 2020. And as well as a bar serving refreshments and snacks, audiences can also order fresh pizzas from nearby Taproom.
Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the Albany, Gavin Barlow said: “Although we’ve found plenty of creative ways to support and connect with people remotely throughout the pandemic, we’re thrilled to be welcoming people back to the Albany again in a way that’s Covid-secure. After what has been a tough year for many, we want as many people as possible to come and enjoy live performance again regardless of financial situation, so we’ve decided to offer these events on a pay-what-you-decide basis – let’s just hope the sunshine holds!”
