Attenborough Arts Centre set to close ‘for the foreseeable future’ due to Coronavirus
By Samuel Gill
Attenborough Arts Centre in Leicester is one of the main venues that has been closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak which has hit the arts industry hard.
Closures to venues such as The Cookie and Curve Theatre in Leicester have already occurred but the venue which is tied to University of Leicester will close this Saturday (21MAR).
The University itself shut at the end of last week with De Montfort University following suit on Monday (16MAR), becoming one of the final higher education establishments to do so.
With the closure of Attenborough, this means that events such as Wrestling Resurgence, a usually sold out show which next takes place on Saturday (25APR) at the venue will now be rescheduled, as they will likely close till at least May when a period of lockdown is utilised for venues.
