Closure of Quay Theatre due to COVID-19 Pandemic




Hello all - we hope you are all keeping as safe as possible in these troubling times.

       We are currently unable to take phone calls or open the building.

We can be contacted for URGENT communications through email: or through our Facebook page.

It is with regret but for obvious reasons that due to the Coronavirus pandemic and following government guidelines, we have to announce that we have extended the closure of the theatre to events until the end of August. All ticket-holders for events up until the end of this period will be contacted with their options, though please be aware that this may take some time. Scheduled acts will also be contacted to look at possible rescheduling.

The Board of Trustees and Management are meeting online every week and are in constant contact in order to review options on a regular basis and we will keep the public updated on any changes or innovations as and when they arise.

You will all be aware that this is an extremely precarious time for all leisure venues and theatres in particular, due to the very nature of their construct. We are having to think of new ways we may be able to support live entertainment even for when we do re-open, if social distancing is in place. The most important aspect is, of course, the safety of our customers, staff, volunteers, acts and the wider community in general. We will ensure that whatever the future holds, this will be of paramount concern.

We thank you so much for your continued support and we will be in touch in the near future with ideas involving the community in ways they may be able to help keep this important Sudbury asset viable and ready to offer its services once again as soon as possible.

In the meantime, stay safe one and all!

Thank you all for your continued support. Stay safe. Stay entertained, and who knows - there may well be quite a few new plays written and songs recorded in bedrooms all over the land by the time this is over!
