Welcoming you back

We’re ready to welcome now that restrictions are lifted and are open again with events at full capacity from 5 August 2021.  Read more

Advice For Ticket Holders

We are working to reschedule as many of the affected performances as we can. Inevitably this will not be possible for all events - and some shows will not be rescheduled.

This event list will be updated regularly.

These procedures apply for all bookings made direct with the venue. If you booked through a third party agency (Ticketmaster, See Tickets) please contact them directly.
