Coronavirus: Suspended performances at Watford Colosseum

Updated: 9 December 2020, 11:10pm

Events at Watford Colosseum that were scheduled to take place before and including 31 January 2021 have been suspended.

We have explored all options to continue with our autumn programme, but unfortunately it is just not financially viable to present full shows – with all that involves – whilst social distancing measures remain in place.  The Culture Secretary’s announcement that a relaxation of social distancing will not be considered until November 2020 at the earliest has reluctantly led us to this conclusion. 

Some shows beyond this date may also be subject to suspension or rescheduling. 

The Watford Colosseum building and box office are temporarily closed.  

Advice For Ticket Holders

We are working to reschedule as many of the affected performances as we can. Inevitably this will not be possible for all events - and some shows will not be rescheduled.

This event list will be updated regularly.

These procedures apply for all bookings made direct with the venue. If you booked through a third party agency (Ticketmaster, See Tickets) please contact them directly.
