50 Free Streams

The Government’s £1.57 billion fund to help save the arts and culture sector has helped Islington Assembly Hall reopen with physical distancing in place during the pandemic.

This is great news for those who can attend the shows but for many, attending shows in real life is just not a possibility right now. We don’t want those people to miss out on cultural experiences so to make sure that live music stays inclusive, we are offering 50 free livestreams to shows that are part of the Cultural Recovery Fund program.

If you are in any of the following demographics, you are eligible to enter our draw to win a free livestream ticket to a show of your choice:

Under 16 years of age
Recipient of Universal Credit
Shielding/clinically vulnerable
Recipient of PIP
Blue Badge holder
In-venue ticket holder that has developed Covid-19 symptoms in the two weeks leading up to the show

We want to make sure this offer is reaching those people outlined in the groups above. You may be asked to provide evidence that you are in one of these categories before receiving the streaming link.


Dice have put together these answers to all your streaming questions.

This program has been supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Can I apply to be part of the draw for more than one show?

Yes! You can apply to be part of the draw for any show you like. If a show is announced after you have already applied, simply apply again for the show you want. Please do not apply for the same show more than once.

When will I know if I have been successful?

If you are successful, we will be in touch via email three days (or the Friday) before the show to let you know. In this email, we'll confirm how you can access the livestream, the timings of the event, and whether the content will be live only or recorded for later viewing. All of our livestreams will be broadcast on YouTube.

How do I access the livestream?

To access the livestream, you will need to create an account on DICE in order to unlock and register your free ticket. To complete your registration, you will need a mobile phone that can receive a four-digit Verification Code via SMS.
