“It’s been an incredibly difficult time for everyone and all industries, but we were the first industry to close and one of the last to reopen.

"Now more than ever we need the support of those who love theatre, comedy, live music and dance to support us and the arts to ensure the sustainability of the venues of Worcester for the future.

“We were highly commended last year for our covid secure theatre environment and we offer a full money back guarantee to patrons should a show get cancelled.

"We want patrons to feel confident to attend theatres again, it’s the same fabulous experience as it was before and we are here to do everything we can to support our patrons so everyone can enjoy the magic of live entertainment once again.”
