We will be emailing all patrons who have purchased tickets for these events with further details as soon as possible and we kindly request that you refrain from calling the Box Office at this time whilst our team are dealing with an extremely high volume of customer bookings.  Our aim is to get back to you all as soon as possible and we appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.

We will update our website with regards to any other events as soon as we have any further information.
 

UPDATED 16.03.2020 AT 19:45

In the press conference following today’s (16th March) COBRA meeting the Prime Minister clearly advised people not to go to theatres and other venues. We have asked for clarification which we expect in due course, however, we believe as of now, theatre venues should close under government advice and tonight’s performance has been cancelled. We will keep you updated regularly and anticipate a much wider update tomorrow. 

Please bear with us in these unprecedented times and we ask all ticket holders to avoid contacting our venues directly. The Box Office team will be in touch as soon as possible. For upcoming performances we are in discussions with show producers and will keep our ticket holders informed.

The safety and health of our staff and visitors is our number one priority and we will continue follow any recommendations from the relevant authorities and implement all appropriate instructions accordingly.

The Octagon Theatre and Westlands Entertainment Venue with both be closed to the public on Tuesday 17th March throughout the day.

We will update our website with further information as becomes available.
