Update June 2020

Firstly, all the staff and trustees of The Poly would like to wish you good health and good spirits, and look forward to welcoming you back to our local venue when it is safe to do so. 

Our plans for reopening! 

We are planning a phased return to ensure we reopen with due caution and care, and only when we are confident it is the right thing to do. Our primary concern will always be the health and safety of our volunteers, staff, and the communities we serve. For now we are hoping that:

» the Guild Shop and Spring Gallery will reopen in August

» the Main Gallery will reopen in the autumn

» the Theatre will reopen in early 2021 with limited capacity on a limited number of evenings.

Our Community Pottery remains open for pre-arranged kiln firing and clay sales - please contact for more information.

Supporting The Poly during our closure

We are incredibly grateful to everyone who is supporting The Poly during our closure through donating tickets, taking credit notes or joining as members. We have been deeply moved by the kind messages and acts of support we have received. We wanted a way to say thank you, so have launched our Windows of Thanks campaign to keep all our spirits up. Find out all the ways you can support The Poly and be part of our Windows of Thanks here >>

We continue to work behind the scenes with artists, performers and promoters to reschedule dates postponed by Covid-19. Existing tickets will be valid for new dates and we will be in touch as updates become available. 

We have emailed everyone who holds tickets with the options available to them, but if you booked in person at the box office we might not have your contact details.
