Coronavirus information

Last updated. 10:35am 26/03/2020

The Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak is having an impact on society, and the current guidance from government is for the public to avoid theatres – you can keep up-to-date on Coronavirus at

The Princes Theatre is committed to the health and safety of its visitors, employees, visiting casts and their families.

From Monday 23rd March the Box Office and Town Hall reception will be closed to the public. In view of this immediate cash refunds will no longer be available and we urge you to accept bank transfer, transfer to alternative show or credit in form of voucher.

We are working with all our touring companies and agencies daily while assessing the situation; all of our shows in March and April have been cancelled or rescheduled.

To reduce call volume please DO NOT call the Box Office; please be reassured there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes here at the Princes Theatre to assess shows.

If you show is postponed your tickets will automatically be transferred to the new date. If you do not wish to attend the new date, then full refunds will be issued the same as cancelled shows below;

If your show is cancelled and you paid online or by phone then you will receive an email to initiate a full refund. *Please note the refund amount shown will not include booking fees, however, rest assured these will be refunded* If you paid either by cash or chip and pin at our Box Office, then we will contact you to arrange refunds – refunds will be issued beginning with the most recent shows and continuing on a 2 week cycle in chronological order. Please bear with us.

We will be keeping this page of our website updated daily, so please check back for more details.

Thank you for your patience and continued support at this difficult time. And we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
