The health and safety of our visitors, our team of staff and volunteers, and the wider public is our most important priority during this challenging time. It is therefore with regret that we announce that the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre will be closed with regards to shows, events and our community classes programme for the forseeable future. As many people and businesses are finding during this time of uncertainty, we cannot at this stage be certain when TMAC will be re-opening our doors. We will however, be posting regular updates on this news page and our social media platforms to keep you all informed 


We are currently working with producers and community groups affected by this and will contact any customers affected directly as soon as possible with further information and guidance. Please bear with us in these unprecedented times and we ask all ticket holders to avoid contacting our venue directly. The Box Office team will be in touch as soon as possible.

Our Box Office team are currently in the process of contacting all ticket-holders directly. Ticket holders will be given the choice to:

1. Switch to a new date (only available for postponed shows/events)

2. Get a full refund 

3. Credit on your TMAC account to spend with us at a later date

4. Donate to the venue


As a small, not-for-profit venue we are made up of a small team and will do our best to get in touch with you as soon as possible to return your money. Obviously this is a difficult time for everyone and the corona virus is significantly affecting Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre financially. Therefore we would like to highlight that if any customers would consider accepting a credit refund for future use, or gifting any refund amount (in part or whole) to the centre, we would be immensely grateful. Please let our Box Office know if this is the case.


We thank you for your understanding, patience and support during this time of uncertainty and we wish everyone the best of health.
