Coronavirus Bulletin

Following a request from the government for venues to voluntarily shut down as part of ‘social distancing’ measures, Bridgwater Arts Centre has been closed as a venue since the 19th March and at the moment we are uncertain as to when we will be re-opening.

However, we are confident that we will be able to return to normal at some point and are already in the process of re-programming the majority of the events that were booked for 2020. Customers who have bought tickets for these shows are welcome to make contact by phone or email for refunds though for those events that are being re-arranged, your current ticket purchase can still be used.

We do need to explain though that the building is currently closed to the general public and that our one paid member of staff is currently furloughed so we would ask if you could bear with us regarding ticket refunds as we currently do not have anyone who can carry out these requests.

Thanks to all for your support.

Further announcements will be made in due course.

Bridgwater Arts Centre has been in existence on it’s Castle Street site since 1946. We are the oldest funded Arts Centre in England.

It is currently a volunteer run independent organisation. There is a managing board of directors and trustees, supported by a network of volunteers all of whom have a part to play in making things happen.

We have an intimate but atmospheric 160-seat theatre and our other facilities are available to hire, for both professional and community groups.

To stay up to date with arts centre news, visit here, or our Facebook & Twitter pages. We do not currently have a newsletter. You will be the first to hear when we are in a position to publish further news.
