Acorn Corona virus update

To all our patrons, artists and all in our community who uses the Acorn . . .

Coronavirus / Covid 19 update – The Acorn is temporarily closed

Given the Prime Minister’s press conference yesterday advising audiences to stay away from theatres, the Trustees have made the decision to close the Acorn with immediate effect.

It is with heavy hearts that we make this decision, but we know that you will understand why.  We anticipate that the theatre will be closed for several months during which time we will be looking to Public Health England and the Government for guidance on when we can reopen – and will do so as soon as we possibly can.

We are working as hard as possible to minimise the effect on everyone involved but would ask you to bear with us as we negotiate this unprecedented challenge.

Cancellations & Refunds

Everyone who has purchased tickets for events at the Acorn will be notified if the event is cancelled. Some events will be rescheduled and your tickets will still be valid for the new dates.

Unfortunately, the epidemic has put the Acorn in a difficult financial situation. We appreciate that everyone is in a different financial position themselves, but we are hoping that anyone who has the means would consider their tickets for cancelled events as a donation in support of the Acorn through the closure period. Equally, we recognise that the current situation will be hitting many people very hard financially and we will of course refund in full upon request.

We will work as hard as we can to keep everyone informed and to implement decisions as soon they are made. We will do our best to keep you informed as we go forward.

Please look after yourselves, your family, friends and, in best Cornish tradition, remember to check on your neighbours to see if they need anything.

We look forward to welcoming you back when we reopen.

With very best wishes,

The Acorn Trustees
