Rest assured that the health of our customers, performers, volunteers and staff is our highest priority.


We will be contacting all ticket holders as soon as we can. Please can we ask that you wait for us to contact you, as the office now has a skeleton staff - it may take us a little longer than normal, but we will be in touch.


An updated list of rescheduled shows can be found further down this page. We will be offering all customers the option to either transfer their ticket or claim a refund. Please mark the dates in your diary for now, and we will be in touch shortly.


To all our customers, you are fantastic. We are incredibly grateful for the support you have given, and continue to give, to the venue. We ask for your patience during these exceptional times. The most important message for the moment is not to travel to shows here in the near future, to stay safe, and to look after one another.

We will be in touch with you all individually in due course

 Today we have taken the difficult decision to close Selby Town Council play areas. Unfortunately it will be difficult to follow the latest Government advice with regards to Social Distancing and cannot guarantee that the virus won't remain on the surfaces of the play equipment for many hours.

The Town Council Allotments will remain open until the Government advises otherwise. We ask that allotment tenants stay safe and follow Government guidelines :

Keep 2 metres apart

Wash hands frequently
