A message from The Y Theatre

The Y Theatre has taken the decision to postpone all performances, events and classes until further notice as a result of circumstances surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus).

We have taken the decision to close until further as we have a duty of care to our young residents, our staff, our community groups and our audiences, and want to encourage and support everyone to remain safe during this time – the wellbeing of everyone who engages with us is our priority.

We are continually assessing which events to cancel and will be in touch with all affected ticket-holders. We are rescheduling events wherever possible, not only for your entertainment, but to continue to support the artists and freelancers we work with. We urge customers not come to the box office in person, we will contact you via telephone or email.

You may not be aware that we are part of The Y, a local homeless charity housing 102 young people across the city. Therefore our buildings are not able to close but from today we will not be accepting any public on site. The charity has been preparing an operating strategy in the face of the outbreak, including providing support should they need to self-isolate, as they do not have their families around them.

As an independent organisation these will be challenging times that we share with venues and creatives across the whole arts sector, and with other independent and small businesses. Wherever possible, if you are able to support us and others, whether that be by donating ticket monies, or by choosing to spend locally when buying over the next few months, you will be helping your community.

Thank you!

The Y Theatre team
