Coronavirus Update: building closure

Protecting our staff, companies, audiences and visitors is of the utmost importance to us at this difficult time. We continue to follow Government and Public Health England advice which means that York Theatre Royal is closed until further notice.

We are contacting ticket holders about cancelled and postponed performances and ask that you bear with us. Please wait for our Box Office team to get in touch. You can see regular updates from us on our website and social media channels.

The whole team at York Theatre Royal is looking forward to opening our doors again and welcoming you back soon – but as a charity that relies on ticket sales for the vast majority of our annual income, we are in desperate need of your support if we are to thrive in the future.

At the heart of the York Theatre Royal is the mission of serving our community, bringing you the best live theatre and telling stories that inspire. You can help us continue with this mission in three ways; donate, become a Member, or purchase tickets to one of our future productions. Any support you can offer, large or small, will be greatly appreciated.

With love, hope and thanks from our family to yours.

We are creative. We are sturdy. We are ambitious. We are York. We pull together.
