THANK YOU @DCMS & #HereForCulture!!

8th Apr 2021

More than £300 million has been awarded to thousands of cultural organisations across the country including the Babbacombe Theatre, Torquay in the latest round of support from the Culture Recovery Fund, the Culture Secretary announced last Friday 2nd April 2021 The second round of awards will help the popular Torquay venue to look ahead to the spring and summer and plan for reopening and recovery. After months of closures and cancellations to contain the virus and save lives, this funding is much needed and whilst it will not compensate for the losses that have been incurred during lockdown it should ensure the future of the theatre.

Jethro - 2021 dates cancelled

18th Jan 2021

We have been notified by Jethro’s management that his rescheduled two shows from 2020 to dates in March 2021 will need to now be cancelled, due to the uncertainty of the current crisis and Jethro’s health considerations. We know that both Jethro and his Manager, Frank are bitterly disappointed to let you down. Most especially whilst you have been so patient and understanding over the previous date changes, that was necessary because of the venue having to be closed on the advice of government guidelines. At the end of the day, we all want the same thing: the health and safety of our communities, and we believe on this occasion, Jethro has made the best decision, albeit regrettable. IF YOU HAVE TICKETS AND YOU HAVE NOT SUPPLIED AN EMAIL ADDRESS, CALLS WILL BE MADE LATER THIS WEEK TO CONFIRM YOUR OPTIONS - if you wish to conatct us please EMAIL ONLY - [email protected]
