Theatres closed

As a result of government guidance that all non-essential social gatherings must be avoided, Selladoor Venues have closed the Queen’s Theatre in Barnstaple and the Landmark Theatre in Ilfracombe until further notice. 

This closure will be reviewed on an ongoing basis to take account of updated Government advice, as and when it is announced.

Selladoor are rescheduling performances where possible and will be in touch with all ticket holders as soon as possible.
