Dear Friends,

We are cautiously optimistic that we will be opening our doors soon. We will be back as soon as restrictions permit. We hope that we will be able to welcome you back in the summer. We plan to open gradually, with weddings and our friends the Dales Craft Fair likely to return first. Our community groups and fitness classes are expected to return in the summer. We have rescheduled our music and comedy shows so please do check the new dates on the Whats On page. Anyone who can’t make the new dates will be able to refund their ticket. Please remember the social distancing rules when returning- keep your distance, use the hand sanitiser and wear a mask if you are medically able to. Please note the building will remain closed to visitors until restrictions are lifted.  Our plan is to open slowly and surely, as restrictions permit. Please do support our friends from the Dales Craft Fair, who have lost so many of their in-person sales this year. They are making plans to sell their handmade products online so please do follow them on Facebook. 

Our box office is remaining closed to the public. We are responding to phone calls and emails and we will respond as soon as possible.

As you can imagine, this is severely affecting our income If you can possibly book tickets for future events, then we would be enormously grateful- to those of you that have made donations or purchased pay-it-forward tickets, we are enormously grateful. I f you would like to support us you can buy Pay-it-Forward tickets– one for our cinema events and one for everything else. They are not time limited and can be exchanged for any event of your choice. With your understanding and help the Trust and the Town Hall will be here when this passes.

Wishing you all well.

This too will pass.
