Please note: we are currently experiencing staff shortages and have had to make the difficult decision to close the Corn Exchange on most Sundays and Mondays from 15 November when there is not a live performance taking place. This is with the exception of Monday 13 December’s Dementia Friendly screening of It’s a Wonderful Life and Silver Screening of House of Gucci, which will go ahead as programmed. We have been in touch with all customers who had booked for cancelled film screenings and we thank you for your understanding. Activities that had been scheduled to take place in the Learning Centre, at The Base and live performances in the auditorium have not been affected by this.
