The potential for continuing social distancing for indoor events has led us reluctantly to postpone the return of shows in our four theatres

And the impact of Covid on the renovation works under way at the Adam Smith Theatre means the scheduled break for the much-anticipated panto this Christmas will no longer be possible.

“It’s sad to have to be making these decisions again and we share the disappointment of all our customers who had hoped to be back enjoying the fantastic buzz and excitement of live in-person theatre experiences with us again,” said Michelle Sweeney, Director of Creative Development.

“We are providing a wide range of services online and through our museums and libraries, which we are delighted to have been able to open again. But while social distancing remains in some form, a quality theatre programme is not feasible either financially or in terms of a great experience, which revolves around a bustling theatre environment.”

There will be no programme return before December in either Rothes Halls or Carnegie Hall, while Lochgelly Centre will hopefully be up and running again from October.

“In line with our commitment to support a local return to theatre, we will be offering Lochgelly, which is a great venue, to amateur associations to support them getting their shows back on,” Michelle said.

Our Box Office will be contacting customers who had booked events affected by these changes over the coming weeks.
