Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan visited the Young Vic this week to meet our Artistic Director, David Lan and Executive Director, Lucy Woollatt and watch Simon Stone’s Yerma.
The Young Vic recently became the first Theatre of Sanctuary in London and we are thrilled to continue in this spirit by supporting the Mayor’s #LondonIsOpen campaign which reflects how the Young Vic’s doors are open to all. The #LondonIsOpen campaign reassures the more than one million foreign nationals who live in London that they will always be welcome.
Announcing #LondonIsOpen Sadiq Khan said, “Few if any other cities can rival London for arts and culture, and our West End shows are an enormous draw for visitors and talent from around the world. Together, we are sending the message, loud and clear, that London is open. We are open to the world’s performers, to businesses, to people and ideas, and I encourage everyone to join us in getting behind the campaign and remind the world that London is the greatest city on earth.”
