  • COVID-19 AND CPAC – IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION UPDATE

    -

    The ongoing and developing nature of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation has affected a number of upcoming shows at CPAC. First and foremost for us is the health and safety of our patrons, performers, volunteers and staff – it has always been, and will continue to be, our greatest priority. We are in continuing discussions with all of our promoters, touring companies, and performers to determine the best course of action moving forward.

    In light of the Prime Minister’s announcement on Wednesday 18 March regarding the ban on non-essential indoor gatherings of 100 people or more, this will mean cancelling or postponing a number of shows until later in the year. As information comes in we will continue to update our website to reflect these changes, as well as providing details through our social media channels.

    For those shows that have already been cancelled or postponed, our Box Office team have been working tirelessly to contact all ticket holders. Anyone who has purchased tickets to shows that have opted to postpone will have the option to have their current tickets transferred to the new date. Should a ticket holder not be able to attend the performance on the rescheduled date, the cost of their tickets will be refunded. Due to the high number of calls to be made this may take some time.

    We sincerely apologise for any delays that may occur and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work through this. You’ll find listed below details for all affected performances to date.
