Temporarily Closed

Advice for Ticket Holders, whilst the venue is temporarily closed.

We are working to reschedule all the affected performances as soon as we can. Inevitably this will take some time, so please bear with us, whilst we are waiting on confirmation dates from the promoters/producers/acts.

Performances at the Babbacombe Theatre, Torquay where a decision has been made are listed below. We will be updating this list regularly – so please check our website if a performance for which you hold tickets is not yet included.

  • I want to help support the Babbacombe Theatre – how can I do that?

We are facing real and very serious challenges. Several of our patrons have asked how they can help.

The best way to do this is by waiving your right to reimbursement. If you wish to do this, you should advise the Box Office, with your booking reference number, or Name and show booked for, by email: [email protected]


A donation from you would not only help to ensure our financial stability enabling us to continue to support the local community as well as to assist the economy of the English Riviera so we can continue to be an attraction that draws visitors throughout the year.

Without shows and audiences, we have no income to help us bring theatre back to Babbacombe. A donation, of any size, will be gratefully received and make an enormous difference. TO MAKE A SECURE DONATION PLEASE USE THIS LINK

  • My show has been rescheduled to a new date – what should I do?

The new dates for performances that have been rescheduled so far are listed above.

-If you can attend on the new date your original tickets will remain valid. You do not need to take any action.

-If you cannot attend on the new date – you should let us know by email and we will arrange to credit your account for the full amount of the ticket price, and you will take receipt of a reply email confirming this. The credit is valid for 12 months and to see any show. When you wish to redeem your credit, please contact the Box Office directly, either by phone on 01803 328385 or via email: [email protected] giving us your name, confirming the show you would like to rebook for. We will then ensure you get the tickets for that show. If the value of the tickets you book are less than your credit amount, that amount will stay against your name for future use, on our booking system, or if you opt to do so, you can make a donation to the venue.  If, the value is more, you will be asked to pay the difference, so we can create the new booking.

  • My show isn’t listed below – what should I do?

We are updating the list regularly as the status of shows is confirmed. These will be published on our website and through our social media channels.

  • I have a different enquiry – what should I do?

Please channel all other enquiries via our website - you can click on this CONTACT TAB or use the contact tab direct from our home page.

FOR REFERENCE the email address the contact tab links too is: [email protected]


You will appreciate we are doing our best to keep you our valued patrons up to date with any changes; and the volume of customer enquiries we are receiving at this time, may incur a delay in response.

Please do not contact the box office by phone or in person. This will help our team to process all enquiries as soon as possible. We are working hard to resolve things as quickly as we can.

Thank you for your continued support

Best wishes & Good Health from us all at the Babbacombe Theatre
