The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the arts and entertainment industry extremely hard.
The Embassy Theatre has been closed since March 2020 and that will remain the case for the foreseeable future. We are working hard to ensure that when the time is right, we are in a position to re-open and offer you all the live entertainment that you crave.
The financial impact of Covid-19 on this venue is serious and unfortunately, members of our team will lose their jobs as a result. The long term impact is at the moment, harder to measure however our theatre will survive and unfortunately, job losses will help us to achieve this.
Please help minimise the impact by making a donation to safeguard our future or discuss legacy giving with our team.
Please add Gift Aid to your donation as we can claim an extra 25 pence for every £1 donated – at no extra cost to you. Please just click the relevant declaration when asked to do so. Our venue is a part of the Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture. We work hard to ensure that local people can ‘live a great life’. Registered Charity No. 1160156.
Our auditorium shows have been postponed into 2021 and this year’s pantomime will also now take place in December 2021. The situation surrounding the pandemic and the associated guidelines are changing regularly and until venues can re-open without the need for social distancing, long term closures remain likely.
