UPDATE 10th August 2021
With the rate of COVID-19 still remaining high in Wirral, the decision has been taken to cancel all shows and performances at the Floral Pavilion Theatre for the month of September.
The decision has had to be made this early in August to allow the Floral Pavilion to contact ticket holders, show producers and promoters in appropriate time.
Although COVID-19 case numbers have been dropping in recent days, the overall number is still high so with public and staff safety in mind, it is safer to keep the Floral Pavilion closed to full capacity shows for at least another month. The position is reviewed every week, with a further decision being made in four weeks.
Opening the auditorium doors and getting back to the business the venue does so well cannot come soon enough – but the health and the safety of the public and staff must be the first priority.
Staff at the theatre will be contacting producers and promoters to discuss the possibility of re-scheduling all planned performances. The theatre will contact all customers who have purchased tickets for an event directly affected, with updates. Please do not call the box office.
UPDATE 20th July 2021
Shows and performances scheduled to take place at New Brighton’s Floral Pavilion Theatre between now and the end of August will not now take place due to rising rates of COVID-19 infections in Wirral.
Wirral’s infection rate is currently the highest in the Liverpool City Region with an average of 236 new cases every day. The theatre also has a number of employees currently in isolation due to either testing positive for COVID-19 or through close contact tracing.
This means that despite the national relaxation of COVID-19 regulations that took effect today, the decision has been taken to cancel scheduled shows at the Floral Pavilion on public health and protection grounds until August 31st.
Staff at the theatre will be contacting producers and promoters to discuss the possible re-scheduling of some planned performances. The theatre will contact everyone who has purchased tickets for an affected event directly with updates, please do not call the box office in the meantime.
UPDATE 16th June 2021
Floral Pavilion Café is open for indoor diners now that restricntions have been lifted, we hope to see you soon!
UPDATE: TUESDAY 17 MARCH
Floral Pavilion Theatre to close temporarily
Following the Prime Minister’s statement on Monday 16 March, advising people to avoid non-essential contact with others including visits to theatres as part of measures to tackle the coronavirus, the Floral Pavilion theatre is to be closed with immediate effect from today, Tuesday March 17.
The temporary closure of the theatre in New Brighton is part of the Council’s wider preparations to focus resources and staff on to the most critical services relied upon by residents.
Please can we ask that you not contact the box office regarding tickets you may have purchased. We will contact customers with information regarding all performances in the coming weeks. Hopefully the majority of performances will be rescheduled but where this is not possible we will be organising a full refund.
Cabinet member for community services, Cllr Julie McManus, said:
“It is crucial that we ensure our most vital services are able to continue, and this is one of the first steps we will be taking.
"The coming weeks and months are going to be difficult for everyone, and we are all going to have to work in different ways and adapt. We are also going to have to take into account the likelihood that many staff will be affected by the virus either directly or having to self isolate because a family members is showing symptoms.
"We apologise for the disruption and uncertainty but the health and safety of our audiences, staff and visiting companies is our first priority. We will be posting further statements over the coming days so please check our website and social media as we are unsure how long these measures will need to last.
"Thank you for your support during this difficult time and we will update you when further information is available to us."
UPDATE 26th February 2021
We are currently reviewing the roadmap leading to the reopening of theatres and hospitality set out in the latest government guidance. Please bear with us as we begin conversations with visiting companies due to perform over the coming months. As soon as we have further information, we will share this on our social channels, newsletter and website and be in touch with any ticket holders of affected shows by email. You can view the latest guidance here.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Floral Pavilion soon!
UPDATE: FRIDAY 27th MARCH
We’d like to thank all our customers for their patience and understanding at this time of great difficulty and uncertainty. We hope you understand that the unprecedented nature of the current situation and the volume of customer enquiries we are receiving mean we are not able to respond to your queries as quickly as we would normally be able to do.
The Floral Pavilion is temporarily closed and we have now taken the decision to close our box office phone. This means we are only able to respond to queries sent to the email address email@example.com. We are answering emails in the order in which they are received so there may be some delay in responding to individual queries but please rest assured that we are working hard to resolve things as quickly as we can. The Box Office email is monitored Monday to Friday, 10am – 5pm.
Updates will be provided through this webpage and our social media channels:
UPDATE: MONDAY 16 MARCH
