Gary Oldman & Olivia Colman will showcase young stars of the future

Published 24 April 2020

Gary Oldman and Olivia Colman are set to be part of a virtual gala showcasing young stars of the future from Yorkshire.

The Oscar-winning actors are among a host of stars taking part in Here Not There, a digital showcase of children’s writing that will premiere online at 2pm on Saturday 2 May 2020.

Here Not There has been created by acclaimed children’s literacy charity Grimm & Co to celebrate the incredible work produced by young people who have taken part in the charity’s free writing workshops.  Led by one of Grimm & Co’s patrons, actor and writer Paul Clayton, Here Not There will offer an hour-long extravaganza of extraordinary writing brought to life by leading lights from across the arts.

Alongside Academy Award winning actors Gary Oldman and Olivia Colman, the digital gala will feature performances of children’s work by such luminaries as Grimm & Co patrons Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Dracula) and Joanne Harris (Chocolat), Grimm & Co trustee Jeremy Dyson (The League of Gentleman, Ghost Stories), and household names such as David Mitchell (Peep Show), Ricky Champ (Eastenders), Lucy Benjamin (Eastenders), David Ames (Holby City), Robert Bathurst (Cold Feet), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones), and Connor Calland (Hollyoaks), alongside many others.

As well as showcasing stories, poems and songs created by children and young people from across Yorkshire, Here Not Therewill also give an insight into Grimm & Co’s future plans for their expansion into a magical new centre in the heart of Rotherham.

Here Not There will premiere online at 2pm on Saturday 2 May 2020, and can be viewed by the world on Grimm & Co’s YouTube channel and at www.grimmandco.co.uk/watch.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
