With the public spaces we consider as our venues closed and the world around us making it difficult to comprehend how we’ll be able to get back to ‘doing what we do’ we want you to know that we’re here for each other!
To our Artistes and Colleagues …. We’re here to discuss, share and explore ideas and potential collaborations. From supporting you where we can with funding opportunities to exploring how we adapt and plan.
To our Audiences, communities and friends…. We’re staying creative, adapting to this different world we’re living in and developing new work for both digital and real-world stages and staying connected with you, our wider Nutkhut family.
We’ll walk this strange and crazy path together, preparing for the world that awaits!!

We’re thrilled to announce that our Co-Artistic director Ajay Chhabra has been appointed to represent Europe for the Commonwealth Foundation, working in tandem with four other Civil Society Advisory Governors (CSAG).
The Commonwealth Foundation has a tradition of involving civil society in its governance structure. The Foundation’s Board of Governors comprises representatives of its Member States as well as five CSAG members: distinguished civic voices that each represent a region of the Commonwealth.
The representatives will provide guidance on aspects of the Commonwealth Foundation’s programmes as well as its long-term strategy. The four other territories represented by the Commonwealth Foundation and their representative Governor are: Celia Wade-Brown (Pacific), Kalpana Kannabiran (Asia), Goretti Kyomuhendo (Africa), and Dr. Marlene Attzs (Caribbean and Americas).
In these unprecedented circumstances, the situation is uncertain and unsettling for us all, however we intend to do everything possible to support our artists, colleagues, communities, audiences and friends during this period of distancing and isolation.
Please continue to stay in touch via facebook, twitter, Instagram etc. and from our Nutkhut family to you and yours, stay safe and well and we look forward to a time when we can all gather at events and create more fun and mischief together!
