Coronavirus Statement 1 July 20201 July 2020
For the time being The Spring will remain closed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Although the lockdown in the UK is easing we are not yet at the stage of being able to confirm a date for The Spring’s re-opening. We are working on our plans, assessing the risks and consulting with our board and stakeholders. We hope to be able to publish our plans and let you know when we will be ready to reopen our building soon. Please check back here for updates.
Although we hope to reopen our building soon it is very unlikely we will be allowed to present performances for some time. We have already cancelled all events that were due to take place at The Spring before the end of July. We have now been in contact with all ticketholders for these events but if you have any concerns please contact Helen, our Box Office Manager on Heleng@thespring.co.uk. You can also leave us a message on 023 9247 2700 and we will get back to you.
As the law does not allow us to present live performances, we are sorry to announce that we will also be cancelling all events scheduled to take place in August, including our Music Bites café events. We will be making decisions about events due to take place from September onwards – including films and event cinema – in the coming weeks and will contact ticket holders as soon as we are able. As with all cancellations we will do our best to reschedule events and will continue to offer refunds and exchanges on affected events where possible. Thank you for your understanding.
Over the next few weeks, we will continue to delivery events and activities online. Please take a look at the what’s on section of our website for information about what’s coming up.
Managing a safe and viable re-opening will be very challenging. We are a registered charity and do not hold huge reserves. Like many other theatres and museums, our Business Interruption Insurance does not cover us for the closure and the impact of the pandemic. We are working hard to ensure The Spring survives this extraordinary situation and is able to reopen to serve our community. We believe that little things can make big things happen. If you think so too and would like to help us during this challenging time please consider making a small donation via text message. Please text LITTLE to 70085 to donate £5. If you’d like to give £5 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text LITTLENOINFO to 70085.
We can’t wait to be back open and welcoming you through our doors again. We miss our colleagues, volunteers and wonderful customers and friends more than you can imagine!
Please stay safe and we’ll be back as soon as we can.
With very best wishes and thank you.
The Spring Team
