The New Theatre Oxford is thanking those who have gone the extra mile during the pandemic.

The George Street venue is giving away 30 pairs of tickets to a special reopening gala event at Priscilla Queen of the Desert on Tuesday, August 24, and are asking for people to send in their nominations of inspirational individuals who they believe deserve to be honoured.

From getting a neighbour’s shopping to fighting the disease on the NHS frontlines, or volunteering at a local food bank to making calls to those shielding to help them feel less isolated – no act of Covid compassion is too big or small to be considered for the prize.

The chosen champions will each receive a pair of tickets to the show and a goody bag.

Nominations close on Friday 6 August, and the winners will be contacted by Tuesday, August 10. For a nomination form, please email
