Buxton Opera House and two other venues have closed ‘with immediate effect’ in light of Government advice on coronavirus.
The Opera House along with the Pavillion Arts Centre and Buxton Cinema will close to help minimise the spread of COVID-19 in the county.
A post on the Opera House’s Facebook page reads: “As a charity this is likely to be a very difficult time, but our priority has to be the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and volunteers.”
“The situation is rapidly developing, so we will continue to monitor and respond to government advice throughout this time and post updates on our website and social media.
“Please, don’t call the Box Office.”
“All tickets purchased through the venues for events up until the end of April will be automatically refunded.”
“Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
