To our patrons, artists and everyone who comes to the Acorn . . .

  . . . . . . . . . A BIG THANK YOU, TO ALL OF YOU!

We’ve had such a good response to our recent Covid-safe events that they all sold out and we would like to thank the artists who have performed and our wonderful patrons for supporting us in difficult times.

Unfortunately, the capacity we’ve been able to achieve under government social distancing guidelines isn’t enough to make opening the Acorn sustainable. Our capacity has been cut from 180 seated to 51.

New Ticketing Arrangements

We have therefore taken the difficult decision to sell our downstairs tables only in “Covid-safe bubbles” for three or four people. 

The balcony seats will still be available in pairs and singles. Our new online booking system has seat allocations and you are now able to choose your seats.

All the main auditorium tables are suitable for people with limited mobility. If you wish to book a single or pair of tickets and you cannot manage stairs, please contact our box office on 01726 879500, who may be able to help – but please don’t be too disappointed if we can’t. We are doing our best in these difficult times.

Increasing our capacity to 75 will generate more funds for our performers and the theatre. 

Please note: Government guidelines now make it mandatory for all theatre patrons to wear a mask whilst moving about in the building. We have hand sanitiser available throughout the building and ensure that all facilities are cleaned regularly.
