Empire Theatre Closure Update - 10th April 2020
The Theatre will remain closed at the present time, and we shall be following the UK Government guidelines and advice with regards the Covid-19 virus, and how it affects the theatre, we shall remain monitoring the situation and will keep you informed, with updates and news.
We would like to remain positive at this time and we would like to announce that we have decided to plan for later in the year, when we believe life will return to normality, so we have rescheduled some of the shows that were cancelled, plus added two new ones which were planned before the closure, we have the return of one of our most successful shows in Money for Nothing, the superb tribute to Dire Straits, along with Leather & Lace, and a new line up for Wes Cardy & Friends.
The Dementia and Autism sessions, will be ready to return as soon as it is deemed safe to do so, and these two popular events will, I am sure be well received when they do return, below you can click on some of the links, to see what the plans are and how we want to move forward later in the year.
Sunday September 5th, 2020. Wes Cardy & Friends. Cardy & Coke: No strangers to the Empire, traditionally Wes and Jan open their popular shows with an eclectic mix of songs from the legends of the 50s and 60s and Country, their voices and personalities warming the audience for the treats to follow.
Dave Bryan: Making a long awaited return visit to Halstead is Dave Bryan, tonight bringing us music from his hero, singer songwriter, Neil Diamond. Cutting his teeth on the club circuit in the late 60s, experienced and popular Yorkshire vocalist Dave Bryan has been travelling the length and breadth of the UK and abroad with his own special brand of entertainment. With an act honed during a number of tours to Norway, he will be singing the hits along with a few of Diamond's wonderful lesser known numbers.
Colin Fidoe & Geoff Bate: Colin and Geoff bring you their amazing tribute to the Everly Brothers. A show they have taken to festivals and theme weekends, to cabaret and theatre, also TV and radio in the UK and Europe, appearing with top international acts such as The Bellamy Brothers, Searchers, Quo, Fortunes, Ivy League, Swinging Blue Jeans, Slade, Madeline Bell, The Metropole Orchestra in Holland and also with Albert Lee & Pete Wingfield, both of them being members of the real Everly Brothers band since 1983.
After a bitter 10 year split Phil and Don were reunited in 1983 in a concert of a lifetime at the Royal Albert Hall, London. This momentous show, featuring the more mature Everly Brothers, and packed with all the Everlys' greatest hits, is the sound-alike / look-alike show which Colin & Geoff now seek to recreate with The Everlys Experience.

Hello all - we hope you are all keeping as safe as possible in these troubling times.
We are currently unable to take phone calls or open the building.
We can be contacted for URGENT communications through email: accounts@quaysudbury.com or through our Facebook page.

It is with regret but for obvious reasons that due to the Coronavirus pandemic and following government guidelines, we have to announce that we have extended the closure of the theatre to events until the end of August. All ticket-holders for events up until the end of this period will be contacted with their options, though please be aware that this may take some time. Scheduled acts will also be contacted to look at possible rescheduling.
The Board of Trustees and Management are meeting online every week and are in constant contact in order to review options on a regular basis and we will keep the public updated on any changes or innovations as and when they arise.
You will all be aware that this is an extremely precarious time for all leisure venues and theatres in particular, due to the very nature of their construct. We are having to think of new ways we may be able to support live entertainment even for when we do re-open, if social distancing is in place. The most important aspect is, of course, the safety of our customers, staff, volunteers, acts and the wider community in general. We will ensure that whatever the future holds, this will be of paramount concern.
We thank you so much for your continued support and we will be in touch in the near future with ideas involving the community in ways they may be able to help keep this important Sudbury asset viable and ready to offer its services once again as soon as possible.
In the meantime, stay safe one and all!

MAY

We are currently closed to the public
At Haverhill Arts Centre we are actively monitoring and following advice from Government and Public Health England about the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Following the government advice, all areas of Haverhill Arts Centre will be closed to the public until further notice. We will keep the situation under review, based on the government advice, and will notify customers via the website, Facebook and Twitter of updates. For further information about specific events we will email / phone customers directly.
We have currently cancelled all events in April. From May onward, a number of promoters have cancelled their tours and so those events have been cancelled too. Some shows (as of 14 April – Blackadder, Exciting Science, LDN Wrestling, Raymond Froggatt, Tony Stockwell, Step Inside the 60s, Cliff and the Shadz, Phoney Fools and Horses and Mick Fleetwood and Friends) have new dates. As we wait to see how the situation develops we have taken some events off sale. This does not necessarily mean an event has been cancelled. If an event is displayed on the website but not for sale please wait for further news.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their custom and understanding. We particularly thank all the very kind customers who, rather than asking for a refund, have donated their ticket-cost to the arts centre.
We hope to see you all, happy and safe, back at the arts centre soon.
