The Lichfield Garrick has cancelled all shows until the end of March due to coronavirus.
The theatre’s management team met last night (16th March) to discuss the impact of the Government’s advice for people to stay away from venues.
In a statement they said refunds would be issued for all affected shows.
“We are really sorry to announce that Lichfield Garrick is cancelling shows for the remainder of March following the official guidance from the UK Government and Public Health England.
“While staff, performers, hirers and patrons vising the theatre in the coming weeks will be disappointed with the closure, we can’t risk the safety of all our friends that enter the theatre.
“Our box office team is currently in the process of refunding or crediting all patrons affected in the coming weeks who have booked tickets, and would ask people to please bear with us while we make our way through that list.”Lichfield Garrick statement
