Programme Update

We are dealing with a fluid situation where there is very little certainty over how long we will be closed, which, for our community theatre makes programming decisions very tough. We have a diverse range of programming which spans hires, co-productions, touring promoters, in-house productions, and a variety of education projects.

On that basis, we beg for your patience as we work through the 2020 calendar, negotiate with various promoters and organisations, and see what we can re-programme and when. As and when we formally cancel or postpone a show we will be personally contacting those patrons affected directly.

In order to assist with our high volume of calls, we would appreciate your patience as we work through the list of customers. If you have query please email where possible to
