Coronavirus Update

Information about Coronavirus

It is with a heavy heart that we have had to temporarily close the Watermill Theatre due to the Coronavirus pandemic.


Performances of Our Man in Havana which were due to take place from Thursday 11 June to Saturday 25 July and The Mistakable Sound of Ed MacArthur on Sunday 5 July have been postponed. Ticketholders will be contacted in due course and will be informed once new dates are confirmed. It will take some time to re-schedule postponed performances, so we kindly ask that you bear with us whilst we work hard to secure new dates. Please do not call our box office at this time as this will overwhelm our small team. If you need to contact box office, please email boxoffice@watermill.org.uk and they will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

The following performances and events have been cancelled: The Wicker Husband, The Boulevards, Goodnight Mister Tom, Hamlet, Wonky and Camp Albion. All events organised by the Friends of The Watermill have also been cancelled until the autumn and our Outreach and Education activities have been cancelled until further notice.

If you have tickets for a show or event that has been cancelled, our box office team will be in touch with you shortly. If you are able to help protect the theatre’s future by donating the value of your ticket(s) to The Watermill, we would be so grateful. However, we understand that this may not be possible for everyone so if you prefer, we will of course credit your Watermill account or refund the value of your ticket(s) to your original payment card.

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to those who have already generously made a donation to our
ACT NOW, to help us ACT tomorrow appeal. If you would like to make a donation to help The Watermill to survive and recover during these challenging times, we would be incredibly grateful for your support. Please visit watermill.org.uk.

The safety and welfare of our audience members, performers, participants and staff is of the utmost importance to us and when the time comes for us to re-open our doors, the ongoing safety of our communities will remain the highest priority for us.

Until then, our thoughts are with you, our extended Watermill family. We know these will be difficult times for everyone. We will be keeping in touch by email if you are on our mailing list, and through our website and social media. We are also offering a series of free online resources and events as part of At Home with The Watermill and we would love to see you there. Please click here to find out more.

We wish you all well and look forward to welcoming you back to The Watermill to enjoy the magic of theatre with us once more. From all of us, please accept our sincere thanks for your continued support.

Take care and with very best wishes,
The Watermill Theatre Team
