Changes to the Rules

Dear Friends,

As you are no doubt aware, restrictions have been lifted by the government. We want to keep all our staff, tenants and users safe, as the pandemic is far from over. Your understanding would be appreciated as we are opting to keep in force social distancing, mask wearing and hand sanitisation. We have a duty of care to our community to keep them as safe as we possibly can, so we hope that you understand why we are keeping our safety measures in place. They protect us all so please do continue to socially distance. Please wear a mask and use the hand sanitiser. For the time being, our office will remain closed to personal callers- please drop us an email.   

Please do support our friends from the Dales Craft Fair, who have lost so many of their in-person sales this year, and the wonderful fitness classes and charity groups that are resuming their meetings. Slowly things are returning, but we are treading carefully. National Theatre Live  will return in January (tickets are on sale now!), although we envisage keeping audience numbers lower to allow more space between rows. We hope to bring back our cinema around the same time.

Our box office is remaining closed to in person visits. We are responding to  emails and we will respond as soon as possible.

Now we are back we are no longer selling Pay-it-Forward tickets. Anyone holding them can contact me to exchange them for valid event tickets, or keep them for exchange at a later date.

Looking forward to seeing you all back at the Town Hall very soon.
