17th July 2021

Following the update this week on the next stage of the easing of Coronavirus restrictions, we would like to inform our customers of the steps we are now taking to keep you safe during your visit. From Monday 19th July 2021, the following will apply:

  • If you are feeling unwell or have been asked to self isolate, please do not attend the theatre for your performance and contact our box office on 0121 643 5858.
  • We are strongly advising all audience members to continue wearing their face coverings when visiting us here at the Crescent, especially when moving around the building. Our staff will also continue to be masked.
  • NHS Test & Trace will still be visible if you want to use the service.
  • Sanitiser stations are still available inside our venue and enhanced cleaning of high touch points will continue.
  • We are still preferring the use of card or contactless payment methods where possible and contactless ticket checking is in operation.

Our seating is now being sold as non-socially distanced for the majority of our performances. We do have a performance of Blackadder II that is being sold as socially distanced for any of our customers who would feel uncomfortable with sitting right next to someone. The performance will take place on Tuesday 31st August 2021 at 19:30. This performance can be booked online or through our Box Office.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at boxoffice@crescent-theatre.co.uk

4th January 2021

The Government announced that as of 31st December 2020 Birmingham would move into Tier 4. Today the Prime Minister confirmed that tougher restriction will be coming soon. With this in mind we have taken the difficult decision to postpone our productions of Cinderella and Blackadder II. We are reviewing our current schedules and will contact ticket holders in due course.

As we are working with a reduced workforce, it may take us some time to contact everyone, but we will be emailing customers to offer a range of options.  The options available may change depending on which event you are ticketed to see.

We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

26th November 2020

The Government have released the new tier system which will come into effect on 2nd December until at least 16th December. As part of the Birmingham City Council region we will fall into tier three, in which we cannot have audiences indoors. We are reviewing the affect this has on our current scheduled productions and will contact ticket holders and companies in due course.

As we are working with a reduced workforce, it may take us some time to contact everyone, but we will be emailing customers to offer a range of options.  The options available may change depending on which event you are ticketed to see.

We appreciate your continued support and understanding.
