Aylesbury Waterside Theatre suspends shows

Shows at Aylesbury’s Waterside Theatre have been suspended because of coronavirus.

Tonight, ATG who run the theatre posted an update that shows at all their venues across the UK have been cancelled or postponed with immediate effect.

It comes after the Prime Minister earlier advised us to stay away from pubs, restaurants and theatres amongst other social venues.

We don’t yet know what this means for the Mix96 80s Night on 27th March, but will be talking to the Waterside Theatre as soon as possible and a will let you all know when we can.

Mark Cornell, Group CEO, Ambassador Theatre Group, said:

“We understand that this decision comes as a disappointment, and a massive inconvenience for those of you already on the way to a venue this evening, but ultimately we all want the same thing: the health and safety of our communities, and we believe this is the correct decision to make. 

“Given the current ambiguity and lack of clarity as to how long our theatres may be closed for, we hope to provide you with an update within the next 48 hours regarding the exchange of tickets. We will be consulting with industry bodies including the Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre and the government over the immediate future. 

“For now, we would like to thank you for your understanding and patience, and to recognise the incredible efforts and support of producers, artists, partners and customers over this difficult period.”
