UPDATED 30TH APRIL - A STATEMENT FROM EM FORSTER
Following the announcement by the Government on 16th March, we have reluctantly made the decision to suspend performances as of Tuesday March 17th – this closure is now until 30th June and we will extend this weekly until we are told it is safe to open.
We are contacting all affected companies, artists and ticket holders as soon as we can, we ask for your patience and understanding as we do this.
We acknowledge that cancelling or postponing events has a huge impact, but as you all know from the news over the last few days it has become impossible to operate as usual without significant consequences to everyone’s safety.
We stand with our creative partners and other local venues including the Assembly Hall and Trinity Theatre, who like us are closing from today and will be balancing the implications that Covid-19 brings to our community and small knit staff teams.
If you have booked for a forthcoming performance until 30th June, we will be in touch regards refunds or credit notes for the value of tickets.
From all of us, we’ll see you at the EM Forster Theatre soon.
