The eagle eyed among you may already have noticed that some of our Festival dates have changed and that the new dates are now on the website.
We have taken this decision in order for the Festival to fall entirely after 21 June, the projected date for the reopening of theatres to full houses. The possibility of being released from the restrictions of socially distanced seating has enormous financial implications for us but we do know it is a nuisance for our audience who have already planned their dates. We ask for your patience for just a few more days.
We will email a fresh booking form to all our Friends and Founders on Tuesday 23 March. Please help us by waiting to contact the Box Office with your queries until after you receive the booking form. In the meantime, the new schedule will help you plan your visits.
There is of course no guarantee that Government guidelines will not change and prevent the opening of theatres to full houses on 21 June. It is a risk we are prepared to take for the health of the Festival and the pleasure of welcoming you all to a season as near normal as it can possibly be.
