All events on site have been cancelled until the end of June. Our box office team will be contacting those who have booked in order to issue refunds, please be patient as this may take while to contact all those who have made bookings.

In light of the Government’s latest advice closing our doors and postponing events is the right thing to do for the time being. We hope you understand that we are in unprecedented times and our responsibility is to ensure that we operate responsibly and limit transmission of the virus.

Our box office team are already busy contacting those who have booked events in the coming weeks arranging refunds etc. We have now decided it is necessary to cancel events until the end of June, and will be assessing the situation week-by-week and arranging refunds for bookings if closure continues.

If however, you are in a high risk group or have been instructed to isolate yourself from all social contact for 12 weeks, then please contact our box office team and they will make arrangements for your refund to be processed sooner.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding, and we wish you and your loved ones all the best.
