Closure Information Posted on 13th October 2020 in June 2020

We are heartbroken.

Since March we have been fighting a battle with Covid-19, and doing our best to stay afloat.

Today we have taken a very difficult decision.

Following our fundraising Norfolk Voices Festival in November, we will be closing our doors until August 2021.

By making this decision now we will save the Maddermarket Theatre.

If we had carried on with our planned programme, and we didn’t get the hoped for audiences, we would have run out of money by the middle of next year.

As a country we are facing a damaging second wave of infection. All the indications point to even greater uncertainty for business.

This is the right decision. We are bringing certainty in uncertain times.

We have a final request.

Please, please, please, book your tickets for the Norfolk Voices Festival. This is week-long fundraiser for the Maddermarket. It’s a great programme, with a fantastic range of home-grown Norfolk talent on display.

If you can’t make the festival, and can afford to do so, please consider making a donation.

If you have booked tickets for any future events which will either be postponed or cancelled please could we ask for your patience. We will be in touch very shortly.

Stay safe.

We will be back.
