The statement from the venue added: “We thank you for your support and patience during this period of disruption. Our Box Office team will be in touch with ticket holders for cancelled performances as soon as possible.”
The venue has not announced plans for its pantomime, Dick Whittington, which is set to begin in December. December is set to fall outside of the government’s current lockdown strategy, which only goes up to 2 December.
After this date, the Prime Minister has suggested that the country may return to its tier system, whereby theatres will be able to reopen with social distancing unless instructed otherwise by local authorities.
