Like the pandemic itself, the impact has been global and has affected every aspect from creation and production to audience experience and engagement. 2020 has also shone a spotlight on how important the arts are for society as a whole.

Our fabulous Caterham Connected panel of Old Caterhamians and friends of the school from within the world performing arts share their experience, their concerns and, importantly, their optimism for the future.
