UPDATED 09/04/20 In light of the government advice regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus and both our and our visiting promoters' and artists' desire to safeguard the health of our audiences, performers and staff, all upcoming shows for the foreseeable future are either postponed or cancelled.
We're trying to ensure that customers are informed as quickly as possible, with phone calls and emails to all ticket holders for affected shows (providing you've left contact details with us!). Social media will not be updated (aside from scheduled messages) as of Monday 13 April as our marketing department will be furloughed.
As time goes on, more people are being furloughed across the industry under the government's Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. This means that it's not always possible to get updated show details to you in good time. Please rest assured that as soon as we know anything, you will too.
Our physical Box Office is now closed, Email is the best way to contact them, but one person is still at the end of the phone for now (Mon-Fri, 11am to 2pm). They're extremely busy though so do bear with them.
Tickets will automatically be refunded to the card you paid with for cancelled shows, you don't need to contact us. If you paid with cash, then we will get this to you as soon as it is safe to do so. For postponed shows, tickets will be valid for the new date, but refunds are offered as an alternative.
If you do have a ticket refunded and can afford to donate this back to us, we would greatly appreciate it as an independent charity who has just lost 2-months' worth of business overnight. This outbreak is going to have a lasting and unknown impact on the cultural and arts landscape and any amount you can give will make a difference.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon and are sending you all best wishes for good health in the meantime.
Upcoming shows listed chronologically. If the show you're interested in isn't listed we don't yet have details to pass on.
