PREVIEW: Virtual Summer In The City 2020

Posted on June 22nd 2020 by Whats on Northeast

SUMMER IN THE CITY (SITC), Durham’s art, music and theatre festival, has gone digital. A collaboration between Durham University and Durham County Council, this new online platform is presenting a programme of cultural and creative events throughout June for everyone to enjoy from home.

Theatre: While theatres up and down the county are closed, we’ve been finding other ways to keep in touch. Check out our online theatre festival, conversations with artists and practical workshops that you can get involved in from home. For more information about theatre at Durham University, visit

Music: While our musicians can’t be together for the usual summer concerts this year, we’ve been finding other ways to showcase Durham’s talent.  Take a look at what our performers have been up to in lockdown, as well as archive footage from past concerts and events.  For more information about music at Durham University, visit

Art: Our visual arts programme presents a variety of virtual creative experiences to enjoy from home. Click here for more information on about art programmes in Durham University.

Family: All of our family friendly resources, workshops and exhibitions in one easy place!​​​​​​​
