Statement for The Montgomery theatre and Arts Centre

The impact of Covid-19 on The Montgomery Theatre and Arts Centre has been significant and continues to affect our operational ability therefore we will not be able to reopen until spring 2021.

The Montgomery does not receive any regular external funding: we are wholly reliant on earned income. Invariably, the impact of coronavirus has considerably affected our ability to operate commercially. As a direct result of this we have entered into a period of redundancy consultation with our staff, with 57% of permanent roles at risk.  

The Montgomery was awarded a grant as part of Arts Council Emergency funding which has greatly enabled our short-term survival. We now need to ensure the long-term future of The Montgomery. We have explored all other options, seeking to protect our workforce for as long as possible, however this will now be critical in ensuring the survival of The Montgomery.

Inevitably, this is a very difficult time. We have an extraordinary team of dedicated and committed people. Our priority now is to provide support and duty of care to all of our staff team.

As you can imagine we are currently processing a lot of refunds. If you have a ticket for any production during this period our box office team will be in touch with you shortly.

We thank everyone for their ongoing support during this difficult time



COVID-19 Update -  1st April 2020

Dear friends,


We hope you are taking care of yourselves during these challenging times.


Given the recent government guidance, we have taken the decision to extend our closure of The Montgomery Theatre and Arts Centre until 31st August 2020.  


For those with tickets to upcoming shows:


We will contact all existing bookings for this period. You will be able to choose any of the following options: a refund, credit or donation. Credit will be available to use on any professional children’s show at The Montgomery. As much as possible we are seeking to reschedule productions, however no existing booking will automatically be transferred to a future/rescheduled show. For any community production, we will be processing any tickets booked through us. If you bought your ticket through a community company they will contact you directly.


As you can imagine we are currently processing a lot of refunds therefore we ask that you bear with us: please don’t contact us, we assure you that we will contact you shortly.


We want to say a big THANK YOU to all of those of you who have donated to us during this difficult time. For those of you who would like to support The Monty, you can donate here.


We hope you all are safe and well and we look forward to seeing you at The Monty in the near future.

Access




Due to the nature of our lovely but very old building, please note that disabled access is not available at present. We are developing a long term plan to make the building more open, more accessible and better suited to the needs of today. The refurbishment of The Montgomery is a massive project and the team are working hard to complete the background work that is necessary to do before we are in a position to apply for capital funding.


Thanks to the support from The Big Lottery Fund and in partnership with Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus, The Montgomery now has a motorised stair climber installed. The stair climber gives access to audience members who can't quite make all the stairs. Use is restricted to 2 persons per show (subject to availability) and must be booked NO LATER THAN 1 WEEK in advance prior to your visit 0114 272 0455. Once booked, please arrive at least 60 minutes before the performance starts to ensure we can get you seated in time.


Bar


Our bar is situated in the Gallery and run by Sheffield Theatres, open for pre-show and interval refreshments. Please note this is a CASH ONLY bar.
