Coronavirus Update

Posted on 13 March 2020

Article update 18/03/2020 at 12:00 and affected events 30/03/20 at 11:45.

Following official government advice issued on Monday 16 March, strongly urging people to avoid unnecessary travel and non-essential social contact including at pubs, clubs, theatres and other such entertainment venues, we regret to announce that The Playhouse Whitley Bay, in collaboration with event promoters, has taken the decision to temporarily postpone events until the end of March. We are actively seeking clarity from the government regarding its announcement and the impact on venues such as ours.
We take the health and safety of our guests and employees very seriously and we will continue to monitor the situation and the threat of COVID-19 globally with advice from the World Health Organisation and Public Health England, as well as that of the local government.
It is our intention to re-commence the holding of events as soon as possible, following further government advice. The team at The Playhouse is working hard to provide alternative dates for these events and, where possible, we expect rescheduled dates to be confirmed over the coming weeks. Tickets will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled event date. Where an event cannot be rescheduled it will be cancelled and tickets will be refunded in line with the promoter’s ticketing policy.
Thank you for your continued understanding and support during these extraordinary times.
