Quiet Period at The Drum

February 12th, 2013 12:44 pm


**UPDATE Tue 12 Feb**

The building will be closed to the public until at least Fri 15 Feb. Box Office phones will be answered as normal and tickets will be available either by phone or on the website, but not in person.

If you have any meetings arranged with any of our staff over the next few days they will meet you in the car park entrance and escort you into the building.


January and February will see a quiet period at The Drum where public access to some of the spaces will be limited.

As some of you may remember in May, due to the heavy rain, The Drum sustained severe damage to its roof and some of the internal spaces were subsequently flooded. Following the flood the venue was closed for one day and temporary measures were put into place so that we could continue with presenting our autumn season’s programme.

We are now in a position to repair the damage at The Drum, as such we will not be programming in January and February. Staff will, however, continue to work from the building and some of our commercial hires and activities will also continue. Details of public access in the interim period will be announced in early January and we look forward to reopening to the public in late February 2013.

During this period we will not be producing a spring brochure as normal, however, our programming team are putting an exciting season of events for the late spring and summer. All these events will be featured in our combined brochure which will be released in late spring.
