A Theatre For Dreamers live stream

Some of you will have had tickets for launch events to mark the release of Polly Samson's new book, A Theatre For Dreamers, which were scheduled for this week in Manchester, Birmingham and London. 

Due to the current pandemic, understandably these events (which were to feature, alongside Polly, David Gilmour and guests performing some music, including a new song) have moved to September.

However, Polly and David both still wished to mark the book's release on its publication date, and so have decided to host a live stream via David's official Facebook page tomorrow evening.

As yet, there are no details of what the stream will include, although a video has been shared of them getting ready for this in a studio space. Apart from Polly reading passages from the book, to give watchers a flavour of it, chances are also that at the very least an acoustic guitar might be picked up by David, to accompany her.

Make sure you tune in tomorrow (Thursday, April 2nd) at 8pm BST/3pm EST at www.facebook.com/DavidGilmour to see what occurs. The stream may well also be available to watch on demand after the event.

UPDATE, 2nd APRIL: due to the weekly public applause from windows and doorways in the UK for NHS and other care workers, which takes place at 8pm on a Thursday, the stream has been changed to 8:30pm BST/3:30pm EST. Further update: it can be viewed at www.youtube.com/watch?v=dE47uvIF5Zc

FURTHER UPDATE, 9th APRIL: Due to the popularity of the first event, further Thursday evening streams are taking place (thanks in part to the family being in lockdown) at 8:30pm BST, over at David's or Polly's Facebook pages, and available online on demand after the event. There's also the occasional rehearsal clip or revised (higher quality) versions posted after the event.
