It is with a hugely heavy heart that due to the unprecedented effects that Covid-19 has had on the theatre industry and our local area of Soho, the Boulevard will have to remain closed until it is economically viable and safe to open our doors again.
The Boulevard was in its infancy as a company, which brings about its own challenges, but coupled with the uncertainty surrounding when theatres can re-open to full capacity and the difficulty in viably operating a small venue in a Covid-secure manner, we are left with no choice but to remain closed.
We have been fortunate to be able to support all of our staff with the help of the Government’s CJRS Scheme, but with this coming to an end on 31st October we have been sadly forced to issue all staff with redundancy notices.
It has been such an incredible journey launching the Boulevard with my artistic director Rachel Edwards and the wonderful production and hospitality team that made the Boulevard what it was. I will be forever grateful for the tireless efforts that everyone put in to sharing in and creating my dream of re-opening the Boulevard and for the exciting inaugural season that we had ahead of us. We had such exciting prospects, which have sadly been taken away from us by causes out of our control.
