In light of the Government’s latest advice for people to avoid non-essential contact, including going to the theatre and other public gatherings, we have taken the decision to close the Centre at SC&AA to the public as of today (Tuesday 17th March). The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, visitors, artists and performers is our primary concern and therefore it is with regret that we feel that both the Community Hall and the Theatre will be closed until further notice. We will be constantly keeping the situation under review and will endeavour to reopen the Centre as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

During this period, it is critical that we continue to support our staff; SC&AA’s members and volunteers; the performing artists; and our creative partners. As a self-financing commercial charity it is critical that we act with probity during what is going to be a difficult period for ourselves and other similar Arts venues.

If you have booked a ticket for an event organised by SC&AA, our team will be contacting you by email over the next few days to organise a refund and/or an alternative arrangement. Tickets can be reimbursed but we would ask you to consider supporting the venue and artists by not accepting a refund, if you can to afford not to. As you probably know we are funded entirely by ticket sales. You can choose to make a donation to the Centre or accept a voucher for a future performance. We will, of course, try to reschedule events where possible, but this may take some time, so please bear with us in these very challenging times.

In addition our AGM scheduled for Wednesday 13th May will have to be postponed.

As you will appreciate, events are largely beyond the control of SC&AA but we will keep our members and our audience informed of any decisions that are made in the days and weeks ahead. Please check our website for the most up-to-date information.

Many thanks for your understanding and your past and future support. We very much appreciate your patience in this unprecedented situation and, like you, hope that the Centre will surivive and be a healthier and more robust institution as a result.

Take care, keep safe and look after yourselves.
