As the current uncertainty due to the Covid-19 pandemic continues, we are sad to announce that the Shelley Theatre will remain closed until at least January.

We are working with our performers to reschedule events wherever possible. In the meantime, we would like to reassure you that we are contacting all affected ticket holders directly, and we do ask for your patience as we work through this.

We continue to monitor the situation very closely, and if it is necessary to extend our period of closure then we will not hesitate to do so. As always, the health of our staff, volunteers and patrons is our highest priority.

The Shelley Theatre is determined to survive these challenging times. We would like to thank you all for the truly heart-warming support you have shown us, and we look forward to welcoming you back when we re-open.

THEATRE PROGRAMMING

Theatre

Our audience for theatre is building as is our reputation for programming quality work.  As a new organisation, we are working on box office splits or hires but are open to discussion, particularly on funded work.

Music

In addition, we have become a vibrant home for live music gigs, festivals, cinema with live music, improvised music nights and pretty much anything in-between. We have our own grand piano on stage which is extremely popular with visiting musicians and a range of PA options available for hire. We have several spaces in which gigs can take place including the theatre and bar.

Cinema

Our cinema facilities were added about a year after we opened and we have been able to consider our programming options carefully. We chose to screen films that our customers generally wouldn’t have access to on the big screen in the local area or may have missed the first time around. We also work with several carefully chosen partner organisations on programming to bring specialist evenings such as horror themed nights using 35mm film projection and guest speakers.
