Following the Government Statement on Sunday 10th May, the Building will be closed to the public for all activities until further notice and definitely not before Saturday 4th July at the earliest.

We are talking to our various promotional partners and we intend to reschedule our shows in April to July 2020 to dates later in the year.

Please check the individual show-pages on our website for updates as we will post any new information as soon as we receive it.

As we are not yet able to open, the Box Office is closed until at least Saturday 4th July. Ticket holders with rescheduled or cancelled shows will be contacted immediately and refunds for cancelled shows will be processed as soon as possible once we are permitted to go into work again.

Please note that our agents Ticketline will not be issuing any refunds for rescheduled shows before the 1st June 2020. Tickets bought from the Theatre Box Office will not be issued refunds before the 4th July. Should any shows be cancelled, rather than postponed, then refunds will be available before the 1st June/4th July from your original ticket vendor.

We appreciate your understanding and patience at this difficult time, and should you be in a position to be able to forego a refund and consider it a donation to the Theatre, then we would be grateful for any help and support that can be given.

Thank You
