Update on shows and our temporary closure

Update on shows and our temporary closure

Due to the coronavirus epidemic, we have had to reschedule or cancel a number of performances.

Our team have been working closely with producers and promoters to determine which shows can be rescheduled for a future date. As you can imagine, this is a complex task that our team have been working hard to resolve as soon as possible.  We have really appreciated your patience during this challenging time.

A list of confirmed cancellations and rescheduled events can be found below. We will update this regularly so you can find out the latest information.

If you have tickets booked for any shows during the closure period, we will be in contact with you directly with information about your booking as soon as possible. We can reassure you that regardless of whether your show is cancelled or rescheduled, you will be entitled to a credit note or refund.

We ask that you do not contact our Box Office, as we will be in touch with you directly as soon as we have news.
