BACUP THEATRE HAS MADE THE DIFFICULT DECISION TO CLOSE ITS DOORS AMID THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK; CANCELLING ALL SHOWS THROUGHOUT APRIL AND MAY THIS YEAR

Bacup Royal Court Theatre released a statement on 17th March 2020, announcing that after government advice and guidelines on how to manage and deal with the coronavirus outbreak, they had made the difficult decision to cancel all showings and close the doors of their theatre until the middle of May.

The management at the theatre have said that they will review and monitor the situation and have currently decided to allow all shows scheduled for the middle of May onwards, to remain in the diary, however, if the virus continues to grow and spread and still poses a significant risk to the public in May, there is a high chance that any performances for the rest of the year will also be cancelled.

Here is the theatres statement in full:

In response to the Prime Minister’s statement yesterday evening advising the UK public to avoid unnecessary social contact, including theatres, and with the well-being and safety of our audiences, artists, and volunteers being our utmost priority, we regret to inform you that all shows and events due to take place for the remainder of March and throughout April, as well as Avenue Q in May, will not be taking place. We will be working to secure new dates for as many of the affected shows as possible and once we know which shows can and cannot be rescheduled, we will provide an update for anyone seeking a full refund. In the meantime, please keep hold of your tickets. We hope to have an update by the weekend.

For the time being, all shows scheduled from mid-May onwards are unaffected. We will review the situation on a monthly basis, or as the situation changes, and provide an update regarding shows due to take place towards the end of May and into June and July in due course.

For now all of us here at Bacup Royal Court Theatre would like to thank you for your understanding and patience, and would like to thank you all for your ongoing support and to recognise the incredible work and countless hours that our team of volunteers have contributed over the last five years.

Take care, stay safe and we hope to see you all again very soon.
