If you have a ticket for a performance at Harrogate Theatre or the Royal Hall, or an education-related session during this period, please bear with us. We will be in touch with you in due course.

We take our responsibility to take care of our team and our community very seriously. We will continue to take whatever steps are needed to protect people, particularly the most vulnerable, whilst simultaneously fighting for the survival of Harrogate Theatre during these incredibly challenging times.

We would like to remind you to continue following the standard advice:

Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds

Always wash your hands when you get home or into work

Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze

Put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards

Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

If you feel unwell (a new continuous cough OR a temperature of 37.8 degrees or above) stay home, isolate and visit https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19 or call 111 for advice

Please note we are unable to issue refunds on tickets for shows currently still scheduled to go ahead.

Consult the Public Health England website for the latest and most current information and advice.
