Lockdown Live

“What have Knapsack Productions been up to over lockdown?” I hear you ask as the UK begins to emerge from its shell. Well, it’s been busy here!

Ruth and Paul have both been regular contributors to Malmesbury Radio with weekend sky guides by Paul, spoken word pieces by Ruth, lockdown chats and other collaborations such as this piece a designed to give a flavour of London – why not tune in, wherever you live.

Ruth has performed The Invisible Museum live to people’s living rooms – even internationally, with a performance going out to Portugal this week.

Paul has also brought Journey into Space Workshops to over 150 students with their teachers via the wonders of the internet!

Paul has also continued to record Awesome Astronomy, the monthly podcast for grown ups which he co-presents.

So that’s a flavour of what we have been up to over the last few weeks and months.

Don’t forget to check out The Invisible Museum: Lockdown edition – made possible by The Arts Council England, or drop us an email if you’re interested in booking an online show or workshop for your school, youth group, library or other venue.
