Changes to the Rules
As you are no doubt aware, limited restrictions have been lifted by the government. We want to keep all our staff, tenants and users safe in the light of the Omicron variant. Your understanding would be appreciated as we would like you to still practice social distancing, mask wearing and hand sanitisation. You are advised to wear a face covering in other indoor places which are crowded and enclosed and where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet. We have a duty of care to our community to keep them as safe as we possibly can, so we hope that you will continue to wear masks and use the sanitiser. Doing so protects us all.
Please do support our friends from the Dales Craft Fair, who have lost so many of their in-person sales, and the wonderful fitness classes and charity groups that meet at the Town Hall. National Theatre Live will return in January (tickets are on sale now!), although we are running NT Live at half capacity to allow more space between rows. We hope to bring back our cinema soon. Our comedy shows are at capacity with plenty of ventilation. Please only come if you are fully vaccinated, wear a mask and have no symptoms.
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.
