COVID-19 Planning

UPDATED: 26th March 2020 at 12noon

In line with the UK and Scottish Government advice, we made the difficult decision to close Theatre Royal Dumfries on 17th March to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

These are uncertain times and we need your help.

Our theatre would normally be alive with customers, artists, shows, volunteers and staff and yet the auditorium and corridors are quiet just now. We have been working to reschedule as many shows as possible that were due to take place in the next few months but, as a result of this unprecedented period of quiet, Theatre Royal Dumfries is more dependent on the generosity of its supporters than ever.

If you are able to consider a donation, however small, this would be hugely appreciated by all at the theatre and would help us to continue to stage high quality productions for the region. Click below to be taken to our donations page.

From Tuesday 17th March, Theatre Royal Dumfries is postponing all shows until 21st May 2020.  This is in order to avoid contributing to the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19, and in line with the UK and Scottish Government advice.

We have been monitoring the situation closely and are following the advice given.  The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors is our top priority.  We are hoping to reschedule shows planned to take place between now and 21st May and will be getting in touch with all affected customers.  At this time, we are hoping to be able to offer you tickets to the rescheduled show or a credit note or refund.  We are working together with promoters to make this happen as quickly as possible, but this will take time so please do bear with us.

We apologise, but our Box Office will NOT be open during this time and we will not be able to answer calls or respond on social media. This is so that we can get in touch with our customers as quickly as possible - not because we don't wish to talk to you.

We'll let you know as soon as we have more information, please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates. In the meantime, please take care of yourself, your friends and family.
