On 16th March, the Society of London Theatre (SOLT), who represent many of London’s theatres, made the following statement:
“We regret to announce that from this evening (including tonight’s performances) SOLT and UK Theatre venues have closed following official government advice. They will remain closed until further notice and will re-open when possible, following government recommendations.”
In an update posted on the 20th March, SOLT stated “We are cancelling all performances until 26th April 2020, whilst we wait for further clarity from the government.
There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled.”
Due to the rapidly changing nature of the situation, it is very difficult to predict how long London’s theatres will remain closed. If you have booked tickets for a performance that is cancelled, your ticket supplier will contact you as soon as possible to confirm an alternative date or to process a refund.
Please understand that all ticket suppliers are under enormous strain from the significant increase in calls and emails from customers. On behalf of these suppliers, we request that you be patient and wait to hear from them before trying to contact them.

We thank you for your patience and understanding in these highly unpredictable and unusual times.
