It adds: “It is a difficult decision, which we know will impact our employees, partners and companies who have been incredible over the past few weeks. Yet we all agree that the health and safety of our communities is our priority, and we are working alongside industry bodies such as the Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre through these unprecedented times.

“We will be contacting all affected ticket-holders with options regarding their bookings. As you can imagine we have a large number of orders to process, so please bear with us. We will be working in chronological order, and are currently contacting customers for performances of the week ending March 22, 2020.”
