Face Coverings
Wearing a face covering helps to protect those around you and reduce the spread of coronavirus. From 24 February, as restrictions ease, our staff members and volunteers will continue to wear a face covering (unless exempt) and we ask all of our visitors to do the same. As face coverings will no longer be mandatory, we will not be able to challenge those who choose not to wear one and we ask everyone to be kind and respectful to other visitors and our team.

Book with confidence
If you are unwell with Covid-19 symptoms, or have tested positive for Covid-19, in line with government advice we strongly encourage you to self-isolate, contact the Box Office ahead of the performance start time and a transfer or credit for the full value of the ticket (excluding the booking fee) will be offered. Please ensure you do this before the event start time as we cannot offer exchanges or credits retrospectively.

For tickets booked on or after Thursday 27 January 2022, we will offer to transfer your tickets or credit your Corn Exchange account with the value of your ticket (excluding booking fee).

For tickets booked before Thursday 27 January we will offer you a transfer, refund or credit to your Corn Exchange account (excluding the booking fee) as per our terms and conditions at the time of your booking.


The events in our auditorium are on sale in the standard, full capacity configuration. As a publicly funded organisation we want to ensure everyone, including those who are disabled or clinically extremely vulnerable, can attend if they wish. If you would like to come to a performance but would not be able to attend unless a space was left either side, please contact our Box Office team to discuss your booking.

Our cinema

From Friday 11 February films will be screened at full capacity with no spaces between bookings. If you would like to come to watch a film but would not be able to attend unless a space was left either side, please contact our Box Office team to discuss your booking.
