Our thoughts are with our Made at Curve production teams, freelance artists, audiences, musicians, Curve Young Company members, all of our affiliate companies, community groups, co-producers and actors, all of whom bring such joy and life into our building on a daily basis.

We understand that many of you will have questions regarding this situation and we want to keep you as up to date as we possibly can.

On this page, you will find the latest information and answers to your questions.


Which performances and activities are affected by the closure?

I Think we are Alone

Ben Hart: Wonder
Northern Ballet: Cinderella
The Habit of Art
Gospel Variety Showcase
Ruthie Henshall: In my Life
Oi Frog
Sister Act
Rogues & Rebels

I have tickets for one of the affected performances or activities, what happens now?

We are currently in conversation with the producers of shows due to run at Curve during this period with an aim of rescheduling as many performances as we can.

Please hold on to your tickets and when we have finalised alternative dates, these will be automatically transferred for you.

We politely ask that you remain patient and allow us time to co-ordinate these changes successfully. We will be in touch with you as soon as we can.

If performances cannot be rescheduled, full refunds will be honoured. If you would like to support Curve, you could consider donating the value of your tickets to us or exchanging the value for a Membership.

I have a question about my tickets or account, who do I contact?

As a result of the latest Government guidance, Curve will now be closed to staff as well as public until Mon 4 May; therefore, we will no longer be able to accept any incoming telephone calls.

If you have a specific question regarding your account, please email [email protected]

Please be aware that our Box Office team is extremely busy contacting affected customers. We will respond to your query as soon as we are able to.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

Can I still purchase tickets for shows later in the year?

Yes! We can’t wait to reopen our doors and welcome all those in our community back to Curve. Performances after Mon 4 May are available to book online.

We’re particularly looking forward to creating more Made at Curve memories, including our magical Christmas family musical The Wizard of Oz, our autumn drama Cat On A Hot Tin Roof and sensational new dance piece, Samsara, from our Associate Artist Aakash Odedra

How can I support Curve during this time?

Curve is a registered charity and this unforeseen closure will have a significant impact on the work we are able to do, both on and off our stages.

If your performance has been cancelled, please consider exchanging your tickets for a Membership or donating the value of your ticket to us.
