Core Theatre Latest Update

Core Theatre Latest Update
posted 14 Oct 2020

The Core Theatre and Solihull MBC have taken the decision to cancel all Theatre shows until the end of the year, and have contacted most ticketholders. We’ve restarted our classes and courses in a revised safe and socially distanced way.

We’ve also re-introduced a telephone and online Box Office service open from 9.30am - 2pm Monday to Saturday. Whilst the counter remains closed for face to face callers, staff are available via phone on 0121 704 6962 or via email at for all sales, queries or refunds.


Solihull is now in a Tier 2 High risk area. From October 14 Government regulations state that in Tier 2 areas people from different households should not meet indoors. 

Customers arriving at Encore Café Bar at The Core will be asked to confirm they’re from the same household before being seated.  Normal test and trace details will apply.  Up to 6 people from different households may meet outdoors.  Where possible we may be able to offer an outside table in Theatre square, for a takeaway service  –  please ask. Encore Café Bar remains open, offering a reduced menu, using friendly new table service and payment. 


The Core Library is now operating a Grab and Go service. Please see visit;

Stay safe everyone – a warm welcome awaits you at The Core.
