Following the Government Statement on Friday 20th March 2020, the Building will be closed to the public for all activities until further notice and definitely not before Tuesday 14th April at the earliest.

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

Shows will retain their original date on the website until the new date is confirmed - at which point existing customers will be emailed by their original ticket vendor with the new, rescheduled date.

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 Staff cannot travel into work the Box Office is closed until at least Tuesday 14th April. Ticket holders with rescheduled or cancelled shows will be contacted as soon as possible once we are permitted to go into work again.

Please Note that we will not be issuing any refunds for rescheduled shows before the 1st June 2020. Should any shows be cancelled, rather than postponed, then refunds will be available before the 1st June 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
