The Lichfield Garrick Theatre will be monitoring government updates on the COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming tier system.
Lichfield is now under Tier 3 restrictions and a review is scheduled for Wednesday 16th December. We remain optimistic that we may move to a lower tier and therefore we continue to plan and rehearse for Jack & the Beanstalk, our bite-sized panto, and Freddy the Teddy’s Christmas Feast. Consequently, ticket holders can be assured that the shows will go ahead as planned unless the next announcement prevents us opening the theatre.
Karen Foster, Chief Executive, says: “The theatre has worked very hard to socially distance our seating and to keep our patrons safe from the transmission of COVID-19. We know that many people are looking forward to celebrating the festive season at our traditional spectacular panto and we do not want to disappoint them.”
If Lichfield remains in Tier 3 following the review on Wednesday 16th December, we will be in touch with all patrons regarding their bookings and offer them alternative dates.
Thank you for your ongoing patience and support.
Lichfield Garrick will be closed from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December. If you have tickets for shows that were due to take place in November, our Box Office team will be in touch with you over the coming days.
Please bear with us during this time and thank you for your ongoing patience.
We will be updating this page regularly with FAQs and new information regarding the current regulations set in place by the UK government in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Lichfield Garrick Theatre is committed to the safety and wellbeing of our visitors & staff as our number one priority and this will be reflected in our actions. If you have a question about a booking, refund or payment you have made, you might find the answer here.
As we move towards being able to reopen our theatre, we are taking important and necessary steps to be a COVID-Secure venue. Click here to find out more.
Box Office Opening Hours
The Box Office will be open on reduced hours for ticket sales only. Our opening hours are currently:
Fridays: 11am-1pm (phone calls only)
IMPORTANT: If you are calling with regards to a refund for shows that were due to take place in November, please refrain as we are currently in the process of attempting to reschedule these shows for a later date.
All patrons will be contacted on a show-by-show basis via email (or phone call if we don't have an email address for you on record) where you will be asked if you want to swap your ticket, donate your ticket price to the Lichfield Garrick Arts Charity, or receive a refund.
If you have any further questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that we are currently following the Rule of Six for all live bookings. Parties bigger than six will have to be split over multiple seat bubbles. Please note that the Rule of Six also applies to Babes in Arms tickets and each child, regardless of age, must be counted as one member of your party. Please keep this in mind when making your booking - you are responsible for your own booking.
Thank you for your continued support.
Look after yourselves, stay safe and we’ll meet again soon.
