In response to the government's guidance, the Compass and Winston Churchill Theatres will no longer be putting on shows until further notice.

We are currently refunding tickets to customers for shows until 30 April. We will contact customers in due course, so it will help if ticketholders don't try to call in. We will contact you.

Please await further news for shows from 1 May.

Some of our room hires will continue as normal, although many are disrupted. Contact your provider for more information in each case.

Compass Kidz is not currently running.

We do not reserve tickets unpaid for payment on the door.

If you cannot use your purchased tickets we will try to transfer you to another performance of the same show (subject to availability) but cannot transfer tickets to a different show.

If you have lost your tickets, please call us on 01895 250615 and we will have them reprinted and ready to collect on the door.
