Unfortunately because our buildings are closed, the box office is also closed and unable to take phone calls. However the box office team continues to work remotely and you can contact them by emailing We would appreciate if you could bear with us and avoid contacting the Box Office until we have announced details for each individual show. Please note we are currently unable to send out tickets by post.

We are incredibly saddened to have to announce these measures and to disappoint customers who were looking forward to these events. We would like to thank all our customers, staff, promoters, artistes and event organisers for their continued understanding and support in these difficult circumstances and we look forward to welcoming you back to our venues soon.
