FAQ

What time can I tune in from?
The live feed will start at least 15 minutes prior to the start time advertised with some information slides and a simple sound design so that you can check that the feed is working and you can hear the sound in advance.

Will the shows be captioned?
Unfortunately, on this occasion, we are not able to offer subtitles. We are working on this for future broadcasts, but as a small team it’s not possible to bring everything together in time.

If I have a problem with my live stream, who do I contact?
Drop an email to this address – info@applecartarts.com and the team will help.

My sound is a bit quiet but the speakers are up at full volume. Any suggestions?
Sound can be a little quiet on live streams, and we suggest you connect some external speakers or headphones to get really good sound from the stream. This could be a bluetooth speaker or a hi-fi using a mini-jack, it depends on what you have available.

How many tickets should I get?
We would ask that you buy as many tickets as the number of people you have watching. As you’re aware, it’s a very scary time for theatres and Applecart is grateful for any and all income and donations that we receive – every penny helps keep us going through these strange times. By buying a ticket not only are you supporting the freelance artists and small theatre companies that create the work, you’re also donating to the fantastic work that both Applecart Arts and the company do!

How can I help support this work further?
Spread the word about this live stream! We would love as many people up and down the country to tune in! You can also donate to Applecart via their JustGiving page.

Any further questions?
Drop Applecart an email any time and we’ll be sure to get back to you as soon as we can: info@applecartarts.com
