Following the government advice and guidance from UK Theatre, the Arena Theatre, University of Wolverhampton, will be closed for the next couple of months.

We are working hard to open as soon as possible, and in the mean-time you can check out the following events below which we are offering online.

We are hopeful that from May 17th 2021 in accordance with guidelines we will be able to welcome limited audiences into the venue. We expect this to be around 1/3 of our usual capacity and will be subject to additional protocols aligned with the national advice, we expect to be offering all shows from May 17th both in person and streamed online.

We are hopeful that should this stage be successful that we will be able to return to full audiences from 21st June 2021.

After this date we hope to be able to offer our full programme in person. The offer of live-streamed access will be specific to each show, negotiated with producers and will not be guaranteed on any specific show or event.

If you have any enquiries, please direct them to where one of the team will be happy to help.
