After much contemplation and careful consideration, we have concluded, with a heavy heart, that considering the pandemic spread of Covid-19 and the associated dangers, we will sadly be closing The Bread & Roses Theatre and cancel all shows until 16th May 2020. We will continue reviewing the situation on a day by day basis and see if it will be feasible to reopen after this date.
Like many fringe theatres, we have absolutely no public funding and rely on ticket sales but found this to be the most responsible decision for us to take at this stage to protect our staff, artists, guests and the wider society.
We will contact all ticketholders and offer the possibility to receive a full refund or donate their ticket money to the visiting company. We would also like to ask further would have been audience members to consider contributing to a donation pot which would be going fully to the visiting companies (proportionally distributed based on how many performances they would have had). We will also aim to reschedule events wherever possible.
Stay safe and healthy!
