WHAT'S ON

Although we are still closed due to COVID, we are busy working behind the scenes gearing up for our reopening.

 

We are looking at ways to ensure our building is covid safe for when we open our doors! Please rest assured that any events that were cancelled last year will be refunded and if an event is postponed, your tickets will automatically roll over to the new date. If you can no longer attend, let us know and you’ll be offered a full refund.

 

We cannot wait to welcome you back to The Old Courts, in the meantime sign up to our mailing list so we can keep you updated with an opening date and when our events are back on sale.

 

Until then, stay safe and stay creative.
