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.

Work With Us


We wouldn’t be able to keep our doors open without our valued volunteers. It’s more than the help in the box office, support behind the bar, café and Front of House. It’s about:

  • Forging new friendships
  • Engaging in all aspects of the theatre
  • Bringing your know-how to others
  • Being a key part of the Shelley Theatre community.
