Government Covid regulations have led to the cancellation of five months of events at Medina Theatre.

Organisers had previously announced the 2021 programme, which was set to commence with a performance from standup comedian Andy Parsons on Saturday April 3.   

The theatre will now be closed until at least September, with a total of 38 events either being cancelled or rescheduled for later dates.

For rescheduled shows, organisers will contact those with a new date as soon as possible and ask that they hold onto their tickets until this has been announced.

Phone lines at the venue are currently extremely busy, and anyone wanting to get in contact is urged to avoid ringing until they have been contacted directly first.
