Cancelled and Rescheduled Shows
As a venue and arts space VISUAL places people and audiences at the very centre and heart of our activities.
We have endeavoured and succeeded to create safe places to work and gather during these difficult times. As a team we are very disappointed at last week’s announcement by the government to reduce audiences to indoor live events by 50%. This decision has resulted in the cancellation of many up-coming shows.
We are particularly sad to confirm that the annual Panto by Striking Productions, Freezin, The Quare Cold Panto will not go ahead. The energy and hard work that goes into bringing this show to the stage cannot be quantified. It happens because of people's enthusiasm, tenacity and commitment. A combined crew of amateurs and professionals come together, adults, children and young people, to light up the dark winter months with rehearsals and public performances. They have shown incredible resilience. We know that the decision to cancel did not come lightly. We can only look forward to better times and the return of Striking Productions to the stage at VISUAL in 2022.
Other performances affected by this latest government announcement are:
A Christmas Country with the Stars on Wednesday 8 December – Cancelled
Tommy Fleming on Friday 10 December – Rescheduled to 18 March 2022
WELL by Pat and Faye Shortt - Rescheduled to 29 April 2022
For the cancelled shows, VISUAL will be issuing refunds as quickly as possible to all ticketholders.
For the rescheduled show, all tickets already purchased will be automatically transferred to the new date. If ticketholders wish to get a refund the should contact the VISUAL Box Office team.
