This season, The Point is throwing open its doors with a two-week programme of exciting outdoor and indoor events designed to bring people together and get involved with the theatre.

From Friday 9th June until Saturday 24th June, the Summer Social series will take the theatre’s work out from behind the stage curtain and open it up to anyone and everyone.

Starting us off on Friday 9th June are Hampshire-based folk band Threepenny Bit, who will be performing an energetic cèilidh to get even the most awkward dancers up on their feet, with a selection of real ales behind the bar contributing to traditional Irish party atmosphere.

The Point is inviting audiences to access all areas on Sunday 11th June with a free open day full of fun activities, classes, backstage tours and plenty more to get involved with in this chance to see what the team gets up to on a daily basis.

Sunday 11th June also marks the first date of live music on Eastleigh bandstand, with New Forest Brass appearing, followed by Ocean Brass on Sunday 18th and Southampton Ukulele Jam on Saturday 24th.

On Wednesday 14th June, The Point’s Creative Learning team will be showing off their work with local primary schools to create dance and drama performances for all the family in the Small World Primary School Showcase.

The biggest event in the summer calendar is the Eastleigh Unwrapped Festival, which returns for its fifth year on Saturday 17th June, bringing some of the UK’s most innovative and exciting dance, theatre and circus companies to the town in this free day of entertainment which takes over the whole town.

Two classic films will be screened under the stars in The Point’s Outdoor Cinema screenings of The Phantom of the Opera, with a live score from acclaimed soundscapers, Minima on Tuesday 20th June, and Footloose, featuring live dancing on Wednesday 21st June. With deckchair seating and an outdoor bar, these twilight screenings will be one-off cinematic experiences, put…
