Coronavirus Virus: Your Questions Answered

Last updated Monday 31 March at 15.52pm

Q1. What is Take Art doing about Coronavirus?

A. We are actively monitoring and following advice from Government and Public Health England about the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Based on the latest advice, all our shows and events have been postponed or moved onto a digital platform.

Q2. Are the Rural Touring Events still happening?

Our Rural Touring scheme is no longer running shows as scheduled, in line with current Government guidance. If there are any future changes to our scheme, we will update the website and notify ticket holders.

Q3. Will the Spring Forward Dance Festival events still take place?

The two remaining Spring Forward events; U.Dance at The McMillian Theatre on Sunday 29 March and the Youth & Community Platform at the Octagon Theatre on Tuesday 28 April have been postponed. If there are any future changes we will update the website and notify group leaders and ticket holders.

Q4. What is Take Art’s refund policy?

As all our ticketed events are cancelled / postponed due to Government advice, we will refund tickets already purchased for those events.

  • If you purchased your tickets from a local promoter, please contact them directly to arrange a full refund.
  • If you purchased your ticket online through the Take Art website and Ticket Source you will be automatically refunded. Please see their terms and conditions for more information.

However we are asking audiences to help us safeguard artists at this difficult time, who are in danger of losing their incomes. We will therefore be running a campaign to raise funds for the artists we work with, which will go live within the next couple of weeks. If you would like to offer the price of your ticket to this fund please email the Take Art's Marketing Manager
