Ghost-lights burn at theatres across our region

  • Watch Mark Witty's report here

As we start our third week in lockdown, an age-old tradition from the dim and distant past has re-surfaced at certain venues across our region.

Hundreds of theatres and music halls across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire shut their doors last month to help combat the spread of Covid-19.

But while the seats may be empty, there is SOMETHING on stage to remind us that one day - soon hopefully - they'll be open again.

It's called the "ghost-light'.

This one light is left burning on the stage to symbolise that people will be back and the show will go on.
