Coronavirus: Suspended performances at the Wyvern Theatre & Arts Centre

Updated: 11 October 2021, 3:14pm

Events at the Wyvern Theatre that were scheduled to take place before and including Wednesday 25 August 2021 have been suspended. 

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

The Wyvern Theatre & Arts Centre buildings and box offices are temporarily closed.  

Welcoming you back

We’re ready to welcome you back when restrictions are lifted and are aiming to open again with events at full capacity at the Wyvern Theatre from Thursday 26 August 2021 and at the Swindon Arts Centre from Wednesday 1 September 2021.  Read more

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.
