The Show Will Go On!

Everyone at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds hopes you are staying safe & well at home. There are four of us working ‘behind the scenes’ to keep the theatre robust and ready for re-opening when the time is right.  With the closure and subsequent cancellation of events in the Spring Season up to July, the theatre has and will continue to lose a significant portion of its income as we play our part in the whole community efforts to fight the virus. The whole team here at Theatre Royal has already been overwhelmed by the support it has received from customers and we are all hugely grateful to those standing with us in these times.

You can support Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds by:

  • Consider donating all or part of the value of your tickets for shows that have been cancelled.  We have contacted all customers with bookings affected by the closure by email (for those we have an email address for) asking what they would like to do with their refund.  This can be a full or partial donation to the theatre, a credit on your theatre account to use for a future production or a full refund to the original payment method.  Now that our Box Office staff are furloughed, for those without email address or those we haven’t heard from we have refunded to theatre credit until we hear otherwise.  You can still email us and we will action your request as quickly as possible.



  • Become a Friend and receive an array of benefits including priority booking and ticket price reductions



  • Support Us As A Business we are incredibly lucky to be supported by local and national businesses and we in turn can offer a host of unique benefits and access to our incredible audiences

The theatre has been strongly supported by its community and patrons for 200 years… and counting!  We will be back!!

We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to our wonderful audience members, our volunteers, our youth theatre and young company members, our Community Company members, Act Your Age participants, Theatre Royal Patrons, Major Donors, Friends and Corporate Supporters, as well as our funders: Suffolk County Council; Bury St Edmunds Town Council; West Suffolk Council; Suffolk Community Foundation; The National Lottery Community Fund; Arts Council England; Heritage Lottery Fund; Ridley Godfrey Foundation; Alfred Williams Charitable Trust
