The offices at Peterborough's New Theatre will be closed until the beginning of July, meaning that support regarding refunds or shows affected by the coronavirus shut-down will be on hold until the return of staff.

In a statement, the theatre said: "If you have tickets to affected shows, or are awaiting a refund, please do not worry. Your tickets/money are safe and will be transferred or refunded as soon as we can.

"If we have not yet received your preference via one of our emails for a performance that was cancelled or rescheduled, we may have automatically transferred or credited your tickets in order to keep them secure. You will still qualify for a refund should you prefer and this can be processed once we re-open. You can check your tickets or the value of your credit by logging in to your account on our website.

"We politely request that you do not email or call us during this time as we will not be able to respond.  

"We continue to work closely with all producers to reschedule as many shows as possible and we will be in touch as soon as these are confirmed."
