Darlington is currently in Tier 3 restrictions. This means that for the time being, live performances and cinema screenings cannot take place. Classes for over-18s cannot go ahead at this time, and the venue remains temporarily closed to the public, including the Hippo Lounge, box office counter, and galleries.

Youth Theatre and Youth Dance for under-18s are permitted to go ahead on the stage under the COVID-secure conditions which are already in place.

If you have booked tickets for a forthcoming event, our box office team will be in touch soon.

We are offstage, but not offline. All the world wide web's a stage! Classes and activities for over-18s will continue to take place online – see our what's on page for more details.

You can still contact us by email at or by phone 10am - 2pm Monday - Friday on 01325 405405.
