Refunds/ Exchanges:
We will refund tickets or exchange any tickets for a voucher or a ticket for any re-scheduled show. Please contact Box Office by emailing
Please can we ask you to remain patient with us as we process these requests. All of our box office colleagues are voluntary and we will work as fast as we can to organise this for you. The Trustees will be meeting in the near future electronically, when decisions on future productions will be made based upon information available.

We’re sorry that we’ve had to make this decision, however we feel sure we're acting in the best interests of our patrons, actors and volunteers.
