Following advice from the UK Government which stipulates that people should avoid public buildings, including theatres, Shropshire Council has taken the decision to close Theatre Severn and the Old Market Hall in Shrewsbury from Wednesday 18 March 2020 until further notice.

To allow both venues to prioritise ticketholders for events in the immediate future – between now and Sunday 29 March 2020 – ticketholders for events beyond this date are asked not to contact the venues at this time, and to await further advice in due course.

Ticketholders for events between Tuesday 17 March and Sunday 29 March 2020 are offered the following options:

  • Await further update where events can be rescheduled. Existing tickets will remain valid for rescheduled dates.
  • Request an account credit. Where possible, we would be hugely grateful if ticketholders committed to a future visit once the venues reopen by accepting an account credit to use against a future booking.
  • Alternatively, a full refund is available.

Staff at Theatre Severn and the Old Market Hall will work closely with visiting producers during the coming weeks in order to reschedule events on alternative dates where possible.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.
