A one-off livestream from The Barns celebrating 40 years of Kneehigh




The recent surge in cases of COVID-19 in the UK is sobering news and there is an urgent need for us all to re-double our efforts to stop the virus spreading.
Following government guidelines is part of how we do this, but individually and collectively we need to take responsibility to keep each other safe. As such, it is with great regret that we have
decided to cancel CLOG DANCING IN GWEEK, our one-off livestream from The Barns, on Saturday 30th January.

Whilst audiences continue to enjoy theatre from the safety and comfort of their homes, many members of Kneehigh company and crew would have been gathering, socially-distanced, to
create this magical evening of beauty and fun. This no longer feels responsible. Those who have booked tickets will be contacted and issued with a refund as soon as possible.

Please stay tuned for further Kneehigh news in 2021.

A note from Colin

2020 was Kneehigh’s 40th year and we’d always planned to celebrate in style—with you! But then the pandemic struck and our lovely summer plans were scuppered.

Not to be deterred, we still want to throw a bash. So we’re inviting you to our rehearsal base and spiritual home in Cornwall; The Barns. Come in, poke around, make yourself at home. You are our honoured guests. And who better to be your host than the one and only... Colin Pickering!

“Hello! Colin Pickering here! Some of you might remember me from my infamous lecture tour of Cornish village halls 10 years ago when I was held hostage by two ne’er-do-wells and almost blown up by their exploding saffron-bun bomb-bra!

Well, I’m over that now. And I’m back in business with my new live show, CLOG DANCING IN GWEEK. Each month I unearth a jewel of Cornish culture—Goonhilly Earth Station, Flambards Theme Park, that bit of clifftop that Ross Poldark keeps galloping up and down… I couldn’t believe my luck when my favourite theatre company, The Kneehigh, agreed to let me into their secret rehearsal grotto!”

About the show...

Join Colin Pickering as he lifts the lid on all things Kneehigh. The history! The mystery! Frolics and fireworks! Music and mayhem! Silly surprises and interactive insanity! And maybe even a special guest or two… all from the comfort of your own home. A guaranteed winter warmer.

Beamed live from the Kneehigh Barns, for one night only! What could possibly go wrong?
