Looking after our audiences, artists and colleagues during the coronavirus pandemic, Monday 23 March 17:00 GMT

We are committed to playing our part in containing the spread of the coronavirus and keep our audiences, artists and colleagues safe. So with heavy hearts, we have cancelled performances and events at our theatres for now. In line with the government’s current guidance, we hope we can welcome you back to Sadler’s Wells on 9 June 2020. As you can imagine, this might change as we learn more in the coming weeks and months.

A key priority for us now is working to reschedule as many performances as possible in our future programme, so that you can still enjoy them and that the artists and companies we work with can plan ahead with confidence. In the meantime, we are sharing dance you can enjoy wherever you are via our digital channels – from recordings of full performances to dance works made specifically for film and online dance activities you can take part in from home. Follow us on our social media channels for updates and visit our Digital Stage to enjoy this work.

If you have tickets for any of the cancelled performances, our Ticket Office team will contact you directly to agree on how you would like your account to be credited. We thank you for your continued patience as we contact all ticket holders as quickly as possible.

The cancellation of our live programme has major implications for us. We’re a charity and more than 80% of our income comes from being able to welcome people to our venues. At this challenging time, we hope you will consider donating to Sadler's Wells if you can. You can choose to donate the value of your ticket/s for cancelled shows or to make a donation here. We are fortunate that any donations we receive will be matched by a group of generous individuals, doubling the impact of whatever amount you are able to give.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our theatres as soon as possible. In the meantime, thank you for your support and please stay safe.

Artistic Director and Chief Executive
