As Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that Freedom Day would see pandemic restrictions lifted on the 19th July, further West End productions have announced temporary closure due to COVID regulations.

The following productions are amongst the latest to be affected.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre – Romeo and Juliet

It is with sadness that, due to covid regulations surrounding self-isolation within the acting Company, we are required to cancel performances of Romeo and Juliet up to, and including Tuesday 20 July.

Following a severely limited season in 2020, and a delayed start to this season – opening with a reduced capacity of 50% – it has been a particularly challenging time for the theatre. This news is therefore incredibly disappointing but is, as audiences will appreciate, out of our hands.

We have been in contact with all customers, but if ticketholders have any further questions, please email [email protected], or call 0333 400 3562* (9am – 8pm Mon- Fri).


Bridge Theatre – Bach & Sons

The Bridge Theatre has just announced that it will postpone upcoming performances of Back & Sons due to a COVID scare within its team. The statement reads:

Despite thorough precautions in place at The Bridge, were made aware of a suspected positive case of COVID-19 within the team working on Bach & Sons. To ensure the safety of our audiences and colleagues, we are cancelling the performances from 12 July to 17 July inclusive.

As usual customer are entitled to an exchange, account credit or full refund. Please email [email protected] or call us on 0333 320 0051 to let us know how you’d like to proceed. We appreciate your patience as we work through responses.
