This loan exhibition presents a selection of the finest eighteenth-century Venetian works from the UK’s Royal Collection. Paintings, drawings and prints by Canaletto will be shown alongside groups of paintings and drawings by his contemporaries, including Sebastiano and Marco Ricci, Francesco Zuccarelli, and Giovanni Battista piazzetta. Most of these works were acquired by George III directly from Joseph Smith, British Consul in Venice, who was a passionate collector, dealer and supporter of Venetian artists and Canaletto’s most enthusiastic patron. As well as offering superb examples of eighteenth century Venetian art, the exhibition gives a fascinating insight into the social circles and artistic networks of the period. The exhibition will be complemented by two publications: a full-length 400-page hardback catalogue and a mini-booklet featuring selected highlights.

With all the wit, magic and fun that our audiences have come to expect from our hilarious panto, Robin Hood is the must-see panto of Christmas 2018. Starring some audience favourites and introducing stunning new talent, The Helix Panto always delivers the best family night out. The Helix Panto will run from Friday November 23rd until Sunday January 20th. The Helix and TheatreworX are once again delighted to announce that Temple Street Children’s University Hospital are our Charity Partner for this years run! Last year we managed to raise €12,000 for this wonderful cause and we hope to do it all over again. 100% of the proceeds from this show will go directly to Temple Street Childrens University Hospital. The Helix Panto was the first ever Pantomime to introduce a sensory performance. This has since become an incredibly important part of our Panto run: Adapted performances will take place on Tuesday 18th of December at 7pm which include no sudden noises or bangs, softer and brighter lighting, and music at a suitable level. There will be no flashing merchandise available in the venue during these times. Please see link for specific times and dates
