News: MTFestUK to be streamed online due to government restrictions
Book your online viewing passes now

Following the new national lockdown, it has been announced that this year’s MTFestUK will take place online.

Paul Taylor-Mills, Artistic Director of The Turbine Theatre, said: “Following yesterday’s government announcement, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to take our entire MTFestUK 2021 Season online. It will be different and presents new creative challenges but, as shown with our Christmas production (still available  to watch until 10th January), it allows The Turbine’s work to reach all corners of the world, and we must embrace the small wins. Celebrating new work and the people who  make it has never been more important and we are going to need your help.

If you have already purchased tickets to see any of the musicals during the Festival , you will be given the option of a refund and will then need to re-book for the streaming pass. Your point of sale will contact you with all the necessary information and so  you do not need to do anything currently. All other streaming tickets will be available from Friday 8 Jan.

Following MTFestUK, The Turbine will close for an extended period until we can reopen with more certainty than is currently allowed. We are hopeful that this will be late April.

We thank you for your continued patience during this challenging time and are more grateful than ever for our audiences.”
