Welcome back! Yes, the Town Hall & Black Box Theatres will reopen for live performances from Sat 5 September. And we are delighted! We have put in place a range of measures to ensure a safe, comfortable & enjoyable experience for all including reduced capacity, socially distanced seating arrangements & the wearing of face coverings. The programme will initially feature a limited number of events each week & events will typically be of 60-70 minute duration without interval. Tickets for all events must be purchased in advance. For the safety of customers & staff, the box office will not initially open to the public & the bar will not open. For queries, email or phone 091 569777 Mon-Fri, 10am-12 noon & 2pm-4pm. If you do not have a credit card, don’t worry – we will accommodate you. Read more
