COVID-19 Statement

Thank you for your patience whilst waiting to hear our response to the government’s press conference on Monday 16th March.  After careful consideration, from today we regret to announce that King George’s Hall and Darwen Library Theatre will be postponing shows until this advice changes.

We take our duty of care to our audiences, our visiting artists and our staff very seriously.  Your safety takes the utmost priority over our shows.

Our teams are working hard with event organisers to reschedule any date affected by the ongoing situation.  Unless otherwise stated, tickets purchased will be valid for the rearranged date with refunds issued from your original point of purchase if you are unable to make the new date.  We will directly contact any customers affected by rearrangements as soon as we are able.

We would respectfully request that patrons refrain from calling and emailing us at this time.  Our teams are exceedingly busy at present so please bear with us as we work through the rescheduling of shows and events at this challenging time.

Please refer to our website and social channels for further updates over the coming weeks.
