In line with government advice, the Theatre Royal and the Playhouse are closed until further notice and Norwich Theatre, who run both venues, are currently working with a large number of promoters and producers to reschedule as many events as possible to future dates.

They are urging customers not to contact the box office or social media team about specific shows and all ticket-holders will be contacted directly by phone or email if the show they booked has been cancelled or rescheduled.

They are also working closely with Cameron Mackintosh Ltd to find alternative dates for Les Miserables at the Theatre Royal, which cut short its Norwich run, and they will get in touch with customers directly about credits and refunds which “may take a few weeks due to the sheer number of ticket-holders”.
