It has been a long time since we were able to share an update with you. Like most organisations, our team have mostly been furloughed since April 2020 to protect the future of the Theatre. Unfortunately, with unsuccessful applications for the Government Culture Recovery Fund we have been, and still are working with skeleton staff to try and get in touch with all those affected by cancelled or rescheduled shows. 

We would however, firstly like to start by thanking all our lovely customers for being so supportive and understanding as we work with our producers and promoters of all remaining shows to reschedule them. To the best of our knowledge, we have been in touch with all those ticket holders of the affected shows to offer various options – if for any reason you have not heard from us, please email exchange@bacontheatre.co.uk to discuss. 

Secondly, we have been working on our new policies and procedures to keep our customers and staff safe during performances and we are now excited to announce that our Open-Air Theatre Festival will be taking place this year outside in our beautiful Tuckwell Amphitheatre.  

Between 3rd – 15th August 2021, we look forward to welcoming back the likes of Peter Gill, Heartbreak Productions, The Pantaloons and Opera Anywhere (to name a few) to a jam-packed festival of well needed music, theatre and live entertainment – which we personally cannot wait for! 

We would once again like to thank our customers and we look forward to opening our doors to you all very soon.

During the current COVID-19 situation We will endeavour to keep all communication updated via our website and social media outlets.



In response to the Prime Minister’s statement, advising people to avoid unnecessary social contact, we sadly regret to inform you that we have no option but to close the Bacon Theatre to the public with immediate effect. We hope to rearrange as many of the shows planned for later in the year, however as you may appreciate, this will take time.
