Saturday 1st August 2020.

Hello everyone.

The Embassy Theatre will remain closed for the foreseeable future with nearly all of our auditorium shows now re-scheduled into 2021. We continue to monitor the situation on a regular basis and further updates will follow as we approach the autumn and festive seasons – the future at this moment, is of paramount importance to us.

We are looking forward to seeing you all again but it remains imperative that this is only when the time is right and when some of the government restrictions are relaxed further or removed altogether. At the moment, we remain unable to offer counter sales although you can contact us by email or via the Box Office on 01754 474100. Please bear with us – we will get back to you at the earliest available opportunity however, it may take us several days to respond as our team are working across the company to ensure that our other venues remain safe.

We have now contacted all of the customers that we can about shows between April and November 2020 – if you have yet to hear from us, please do ensure that your online account is up to date – perhaps your email address has changed. Please check that we have the correct telephone number too. These details will allow us to keep you up to date in the future. Thank you for your co-operation.

We will continue to monitor government guidance and make a decision about this year’s pantomime in due course.

Please be advised that your tickets will be accepted and remain valid on any new dates and if you have requested to collect them, they will be available for you when we can welcome the public here again. Whilst tickets are valid and accepted, please also remember that your seats will not change – the seats you had booked will be the same and your seats will not be moved. We hope that clears up some confusion.

This industry will recover however it is going to take a considerable period of time. Theatres are likely to be amongst the last venues that are allowed to re-open fully and at the moment, we do not know when that is likely to be.

We are working very hard to ensure that when the time is right, the theatre can emerge from this and continue to offer live entertainment – an experience that cannot be matched. We would like to thank all of those people who have donated the cost of their ticket or sent us a separate donation to safeguard our future – thank you. Whilst we operate with a very limited team. customer refunds will also take several weeks to process and therefore – please again, bear with us.

We ask for your compassion and understanding at this very difficult time. Please consider investing your ticket, should you not be able to attend any revised dates, in a theatre gift voucher or using any funds to choose an alternative show from our calendar by accepting theatre account credit rather than requesting a refund.

We continue to be humbled by the support we have received. Thank you. We hope you will continue to support us – your venue needs you now more than ever before! We will be back and #keepentertainmentlive…
