Coronavirus Update: cancelled performances

Following the latest government advice about Coronavirus, all public performances and events at York Theatre Royal will be cancelled from today, 17 March, until 11 April.

We will be in contact with ticket holders for the next four weeks of performances (17 March – 11 April). Please do not contact Box Office directly. We ask that you are patient with us during this unprecedented time.

The closure of theatres in the UK puts York Theatre Royal, along with hundreds of other theatres, into a critical situation. We ask that you give great consideration to donating your ticket purchase to the theatre at this time. As a charity, your support is crucial to our survival. If you cannot do this, we’d ask that you consider a credit to your account. If none of this is satisfactory, you can choose a refund.

Although performances are cancelled, the York Theatre Royal building, Box Office and cafe are set to remain open. If the closure period is extended, we will be in touch with bookers for future performances in good time, and we’ll also post updates to our website and social media channels.

It’s with enormous sadness that we take these measures, but the safety of our audiences, staff and community is of utmost importance. We are looking at ways we can be of use to the wider York community during this time. More details regarding these plans will follow. Thank you for your continued support.
