COVID-19 Update

Updated 20 March 2020, 17:00

Further to current government advice, which stipulates that people should avoid public buildings including theatres to help slow the spread of coronavirus, SJT is currently closed, although our Box Office remains open for all phone and email enquiries.

Our staff are continuing to manage cancellations and will be in touch with customers who have bookings that are affected.

The closure of theatres in the UK puts the Stephen Joseph Theatre into a critical situation. If you feel able to do so, we are asking audiences who have purchased tickets to consider donating the value of that ticket to the theatre or to have the value credited to their account, rather than refunded. We do of course understand if that is not possible.

This is a fast-developing situation, and we will be making further announcements over the next few days as things become clearer.

Please take care of yourself and all those around you.
