We have been asked “What’s going on at Highbury Theatre?” Well there is a LOT going on!! Highbury Theatre is in a very strong position and everyone within it is committed to returning to entertain our audiences as soon as circumstances allow.

Following the Prime Minister's announcement on 31 October, Highbury Theatre is once again closed for all activities but we are planning to open after 17 May 2021 if the Government plan goes to program and Lockdown is further eased.

Early productions will be Snapshots 2 on stage and a film,The Personal History of David Copperfield..

We see this period as simply a delay to our planned activities and we are looking forward to re-opening, entertaining, and of course amusing again.

We will again be announcing films and performances at short notice in the Highbury Flyer and using the revised on-line booking procedure.

  • Booking only on line with Theatre Managed allocation of seats
  • Entry to the the building
  • The use of hand sanitiser and face coverings which we have made mandatory for moving around the theatre
  • Entry to the auditorium, including the management of physically distanced seating
  • Exiting the building after the showing
  • Tracing mechanisms to compliment the Government Test and Trace scheme
  • Our Covid19 arrangements
  • The Players have been keeping fit with on-line rehearsals and recordings.

We have a series of well rehearsed readings practiced in a Covid Safe environment which we will perform on stage over the coming months so watch the Highbury Flyer for ticket booking arragements

 'Lockdown in Little Grimley', written by David Tristram is currently in production - under strict Government guidelines of course - and will be unleashed later this year.
The play is written for performance on stage within the Government Covid guidlines.

We hope this will be for a 5 night run. David is one of the country's most prolific comedy playwrights and a good friend of Highbury so we're confident our (physically distanced) audiences will have a great night out during these troubled times. 

We’re planning to reopen for our regular play season when regulations are relaxed including ‘Nell Gwynn’ by Jessica Swale , a rumbustious saucy romp that is just what is needed after these dire times.
