Arts Alive becomes Arts E-Live

Arts Alive is back – in a different form, as most festivals are this year. At Damn Cheek we’ve now participated in Buxton Fringe and the Saltaire Festival with on line productions and it’s good to be able to add Arts Alive to the list. Three festivals we have existing relationships with, three festivals where the team have been able to adapt to a different cultural world, and three festivals finding benefits as well as challenges in so doing.

The Damn Cheek offering for Arts E-Live is my play Little Brother which I have adapted to allow for the current social distancing and ‘rule of 6’ environment. We’ve a great cast, a talented director and an approach to on line staging which could be characterised as Zoom TV. Little Brother will be on line at 8.15 on the 14th October and will last just under an hour with a short Q&A session afterwards – click here to book your free seat now!

Mole Valley Poets will also be taking part. We’ve held three on line events already, in addition to our member meetings, and each one has prompted calls for a repeat. The Arts E Live evening will be at 7.30 on the 19th October and will be readings from ten poets under the heading 2020 Vision – poems from an unusual year. Expect passion, humour, reflection and drama from a range of styles and a range of personalities. To book a place email

There’s a lot more on offer from Arts E-Live – music, art, drama and more. See their website – for more detail.
