Welcome back to The Core Theatre

Welcome back to The Core Theatre
posted 31 Aug 2021

We’re delighted to finally welcome customers back to The Core Theatre Solihull. After a strange and difficult eighteen months, we're thrilled to be back doing what we do best! Some shows have moved dates frequently and we thank our loyal audiences for sticking with us throughout.

Keeping Our Customers Safe

The safety and well-being of our customers and staff is our primary concern, and we're taking a common sense approach to protect everyone during opening hours at The Core.

We encourage visitors to The Core wear a mask or other suitable face covering whilst entering and walking around the venue. Whilst not compulsory, it's a sensible thing to help protect yourself and others and can be removed once seated at your event or in the Cafe Bar.


If you have tested positive or have Covid symptoms please DO NOT ATTEND but follow instructions in place. If you have recieved a 'notification' similarly, you should follow the guidelines in place at the time.

If you are able, we highly recommend taking a Lateral Flow test within 48 hours of attending a performance.  These are free from chemists or can be ordered online from NHS.  Currently  this is not a compulsory action to gain entry.

When attending shows or classes you're are encouraged to use the hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities available and keep a nice distance from others when in the building.

Everything is subject to current guidance given by Public Health England and any local guidelines which may be in place.


See It Safely

We have signed up to a national theatre initiative called See It Safely, designed to give audiences confidence to return to theatres. Things won't be quite the same as pre-lockdown but we will be doing our best and ask our customers to follow any safety measures in place with kindess and patience.

We currently operate extra deep cleaning and sanitise busy areas, ventilating as often as we can.  Our staff are working very hard behind the scenes to ensure our facilities, show and activities continue safely for all concerned. We will do our utmost to keep staff and audiences as safe a possible.

If you have any questions, queries or concerns, please talk to a member of staff or email us at


We look forward to welcoming audiences back to The Core Theatre Solihull for our exciting Autumn season. We've missed you!
