“It is with great sadness that, in consultation with our team and programmed companies, I have made the difficult decision to postpone all scheduled performances from today.

The wellbeing of our audiences, artists and team is our first priority in these challenging times.

We are gutted that these brilliant shows will have to wait to be seen, but in the coming weeks we will endeavour to reschedule the postponed productions into our future theatre seasons wherever possible.

Although our current operations are on pause, we are seeking alternative ways to work with our deeply valued artists, theatre companies and audiences. We want to help in any way we possibly can to support the wellbeing of artists, companies and fellow venues in these unprecedented times. We will keep in touch, posting updates across our social media, by email and on our website.

We are a registered charity and a small independent theatre that receives no guaranteed funding or financial support. We are completely dependent on ticket sales, donations and bar income. With this in mind we ask all affected ticket holders to consider donating the cost of their ticket if they can. For those who are able to donate we would like to offer a year of free membership as a thank you.

For now, please take care of one another and be assured that our resolve and determination to keep our independent theatre going is stronger than ever. We will get through this. Love to all.”
