Monday, 6th April 2020

Following the current guidance from the UK government, the Arts Theatre will continue to remain closed to the public until further notice.

We are now cancelling all performances up to and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen. 

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have a booking for SIX, please read the following guidance which has been issued by our leading industry body, Society of London Theatre:

Link to Society of London Theatre statement.

If you have reserved one of our studios or have a Main House booking, please be assured that we will contact you directly in the next coming days to discuss this with you.

For all other questions, concerns or advice please contact

We sincerely wish all of our company, staff, customers and the public the best at this very uncertain time and hope to welcome you all back to our venue as soon as we are able.

Stay safe and strong.
