Theatres and galleries in SE1 have issued a joint statement in the wake of Saturday's terrorist attack at London Bridge. Read it in full below.
We have all been shocked and saddened by the terrible events at London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday night.
Our hearts go out to the families, friends and loved ones of the victims, and to all of those affected by this terrible attack.
As representatives of the cultural venues in the area, we are working together to ensure that our venues remain safe, open and welcoming to all. We will continue with our programmes as planned and demonstrate the cultural sector's spirit, strength and ability to unite people of all backgrounds.
London is a city defined by its culture. We all intend to play our part in continuing to build and share this culture, and to welcome visitors from the city and the world to our creative events and spaces.
