Following the latest Government advice, the theatre has taken the difficult decision to close for the foreseeable future and cancelled all shows up to and including 8 July.

If you purchased tickets with us for the Spring 2020 season up until 8 July you will be contacted by email regarding your booking. This does not affect our annual pantomime which is still planned to open on Friday 27 November. If we don’t have your email address or you haven’t received the email we ask that you contact us at to notify us how you would like your ticket returned. As an independent charity, fulfilling refunds for all cancelled performances could be financially challenging for us and we are appealing to customers to consider donating all or part of their ticket price to help secure the theatre for future generations. When emailing, please state whether you are happy to give a full donation, partial donation or would like theatre credit to use towards future performances or a refund. If you are happy to make a full or partial donation, please indicate whether you are eligible for gift aid.

We have been overwhelmed and humbled already by the number of people who have made donations. Your continued support and generosity gives us hope that once this difficult period is over, the theatre will reopen and continue to delight audiences with a varied and exciting programme of events.

Please note, the theatre building itself is now closed and we are currently unable to take phone calls. We are working on a way to resume phone contact as soon as possible.

Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you back to the theatre very soon.
