Stockport Garrick Theatre: COVID 19 action

Dear Patron

It is with great regret that we have to inform you we are obliged to cancel our remaining shows this season. This is a direct result of the current outbreak of Covid-19 (corona-virus) and the advice issued by the Prime Minister to the public to avoid attending thea-tres, clubs, pubs and restaurants.

Clearly the situation is evolving rapidly and we will monitor guidance from government and react accordingly.

As a small independent theatre we always appreciate your support, but never more so than during these uncertain times. We depend on you coming to see our performances, so being forced to cancel shows puts us in a very difficult financial position. In order for the theatre to survive, we're going to need your continuing support. If you're financially able, please consider making a donation to help us continue our mission to bring great theatre to the heart of our community. You can find details of how to donate to the Garrick at

If you have bought tickets to any of our cancelled shows, we would ask that you consider that as a donation to us, for which we would be enormously grateful.

However, should you require a refund, if you booked for any of these shows via Tick-etSource your money will be refunded directly by TicketSource. They have agreed to waive the one pound booking fee for telephone bookings, but cannot waive the £1.75 postal charge.

If you booked via the Garrick box office you will be contacted by them in the very near future.

We fully appreciate grateful your ongoing support, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Garrick for the 2020/21 season.

Kind regards

Martin Pritchard


Two World Wars couldn’t stop the Garrick performing and neither has a global pandemic. If you head over to our YouTube channel via the link below, you can see and hear a number of Garrick members reading a range of Shakespeare’s Sonnets. You can view these via a convenient playlist or individually and more are being added all the time - so make sure you keep checking back to see and hear the latest additions.

Many thanks to our House Manager, Morgan, for all his hard work in giving the Garrick foyer area a fresh look. The pictures show what things looked like whilst work was underway, so expect to see a bright new appearance when we re-open our doors after lockdown.
