Over the past year, the arts industry has faced a cultural catastrophe like no other and has been one of the hardest hit UK sectors affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Whilst lockdown has certainly been a particularly challenging and tough time for us all, it has also given us a renewed appreciation for each other and our passions. As a regular theatregoer, I have immensely missed the thrill of live performance. Despite being able to stream shows online, there is nothing quite like experiencing the magical atmosphere of a night at the theatre. With the end of lockdown finally in sight, I decided to delve through my old photos and reminisce about some of my favourite theatrical memories...
