  The safety of our audiences, artists and staff remains paramount as we reopen for live events.  For this reason, we have elected to put all new shows on sale with a smaller than usual capacity, as a precautionary measure to enable us to distance our audience members safely.  If restrictions are lifted and audience demands, we will increase capacity for popular events. Oxford Playhouse will continue to adhere to government advice regarding live performances in theatres and other entertainment venues and offer full refunds if bookers test positive for Covid-19.  If you have any concerns or questions, our Box Office team will be happy to talk to you.
