Following the most recent official government recommendations regarding COVID-19, we regret to inform you that The Kelvin Players Studio Theatre will be closed from Thursday 19 March until further notice.

All shows and any other activities scheduled to take place at Kelvin will be suspended from this time onwards.

We understand that this decision comes as a disappointment, but ultimately we all want to protect the health and safety of our communities and we believe this is the correct decision to make.

With regards to tickets and refunds, we are dealing with this matter via our agents “Ticketsource” who making arrangements to reimburse everyone who has already purchased tickets.  They will be in touch as soon as possible.

Please be assured that we are working as quickly as possible to understand the implications of this closure and to put the appropriate steps in place.

It is currently unclear how long the Studios will need to remain closed, however we will be following the advice of the government in the coming days and provide updates as and when we are clear what we can do.

For now, we would like to thank you for your understanding and patience, and to recognise the incredible efforts and support of our members, patrons and friends over this difficult period.
