We do hope you and yours are well. As perhaps you may have anticipated, we won’t be able to stage Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre this year as planned; we have waited as long as possible for government to tell us what we can do, we’ve now clearly run out of time. The good news is that the season in its entirety will now run a year from now, from Friday 2 July 2021. All bookers for 2020 will receive an email from us with information about your tickets. 

You can read our press release here  about how this places us in a battle for survival as we struggle with the lack of guidance to theatres about how and when it is safe for them to open, and how producers such as Storyhouse will be able to create productions when they are.

Two thirds of the UK’s theatres currently expect to be out of business by Christmas, a fate that will also be met by Storyhouse if this situation continues much longer.

But you can help.  You can read about how to get involved in our New Story Campaign with links to donating, joining, volunteering and paying it forward.

Together, we will be stronger.
