Reopening The Playhouse Doors

Posted on: 28th June 2021

As lockdown eases, a new chapter is starting here at The Playhouse. We are currently still closed to the public, but we are making plans to ease our big red doors open again.

We will continue our programme of live performances inside the theatre, broadcast live online- with the return of small test audiences in the summer of 2021.

Our busy education and outreach work in the community continues online and in person where possible, and we’re delighted to say is thriving and growing despite the pandemic.

We hope that we may be able to restart regular workshops and classes soon, and are currently talking to the many groups and organisations who use our building about a phased return throughout 2021.

We will announce any return of audiences, classes and workshops on our social media channels @PlayhouseDerry and on this page. Our Box Office remains closed and our phone is temporarily inactive due to our team working from home, so any enquiries should be made by email to  


We are delighted that we continue to keep telling incredible stories and delivering arts to our community, so we hope you keep following us online, and join us on our reopening journey and in our new #DigitalPlayhouse
