An update from New Theatre Royal on COVID-19  

New Theatre Royal has been in the heart of Portsmouth for over 160 years, proudly serving the people of the city and our surrounding communities. Now our much-loved venue is closed as we play our part in preventing the spread of Coronavirus. 

Help us, keep buying tickets!  Bookings can be done online.  Reservations and group bookings can be made by emailing

We are rescheduling as many shows and events as we can, however there are regrettably some performances that have had to be cancelled. All affected customers will be contacted. 

The show I have booked has been rescheduled 

If the show you booked tickets for has been rescheduled your booking still stands and your tickets and seats are valid for the new date. You do not need to do anything further.

The show I have booked has been cancelled

You will be contacted via email by a member of the Box Office team. 

Please be considerate to our box office staff. The team is working from home and doing their best to support all our patrons.

We cannot wait to open our doors once again and welcome you back but, for now, take care of yourselves and those around you and we thank you all for your kind messages of support.
