Coronavirus: a message to our audiences and communityCLICK HERE FOR AN ACCESSIBILITY FRIENDLY VERSION OF THIS PAGE
Hull Truck Theatre is continuing to follow Government guidance and will be closed to the public until November 2020. We are working with partners and visiting companies to reschedule all shows so that audiences who have missed performances during the closure period still get to enjoy the great programme of entertainment that had been planned.
The Box Office team are working hard to contact all audiences who have tickets booked for shows affected by the closure and bookers do not need to do anything at this time.CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION ABOUT AFFECTED SHOWS
A Message from Mark Babych and Janthi Mills-Ward
“Protecting our team, audiences and communities is our upmost priority during this period., The theatre building may be closed except for a security team, but a small core team continue to work from home to ensure when it is safe for us to reopen we are able to bring you the very best theatre. We miss the wider team who have been furloughed as part of the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, but we look forward to welcoming them and you back.
We want to take this opportunity to thank EVERYBODY, from staff and audiences, to artists, partners and donors, for their continued and invaluable support during this time.
We are deeply disappointed to have postponed our community production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which would have seen up to 100 members of our local community come together to create, perform and have fun. We are determined that this project will happen in the future, celebrating our fantastic community and the collaborative art of theatre.
Financially, we can reassure everyone that we have a sustainable financial plan in place for the closure period. We are now looking to the future and how we can continue to play a vital role in the cultural landscape of our city and the lives of our communities, as we all emerge from this challenge. We are exploring all financial and funding options open to us to ensure we continue to present great theatre, to work with and support talented artists at all stages of their career and offer creative opportunities to local communities, for generations to come.
We are hugely grateful to those Hull Truck heroes who have either donated the cost of their tickets or made independent donations to support the work we want to continue to do when we reopen, via the Hull Truck Theatre Future Fund.”
