Temporary Closure Update

Temporary Closure Update
posted 20 May 2020

The Core Theatre is currently closed, and all shows, classes and courses up until the end of August have been cancelled.

In the interest of health and safety, we currently have a reduced number of staff working limited hours. They will be contacting ticketholders for shows that have been cancelled, in order to arrange refunds, credits, donations or to move tickets to a rescheduled date. Ticketholders will be contacted in date order, starting with the shows cancelled in March.

We kindly request that you do not contact box office at this time, but instead wait for them to get in touch with you, in order to help speed up the process. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this process as quickly and efficiently as possible, given the difficult circumstances.

Phone lines are not currently open but if you believe that we do not have up-to-date contact details for you, please let us know via thecoretheatre@solihull.gov.uk

Any further updates will be announced on our website and via our Facebook and Twitter.

Please note the whole Core Building is closed to the public including the Library, Café, Solihull Connect and the Community Advice Hub.

Stay safe everyone – a warm welcome awaits you later in the year with lots of classes, courses, shows and much more!
