Performance Lab Season of Events 2020
Due to the evolving Coronavirus outbreak and related concerns, our Performance Lab events in May 2020 at the Bloomsbury Theatre and Studio have been postponed or cancelled. We are working with our partners to reschedule these dates for Autumn 2020 onwards. If you have bought for shows affected by this then you will be emailed offering to transfer you tickets for the new dates or offered a full refund. We hope to be open again soon and our decision will be guided by the Government’s public health advice.
