Your Visit

We’re beyond excited to re-open the Crucible Theatre from October 2020.

Tier 3 restrictions

Sheffield is under Tier 3 restrictions. We remain in close contact with Sheffield City Council and Public Health Sheffield, and can confirm that under Tier 3 restrictions live in-person events are permitted. Households (or support bubbles) must not mix. Government guidance also includes avoiding traveling in or out of very high alert level areas.

Safety has been our top priority for our return. In making the Crucible Covid-secure tickets are sold in bubbles of 1 – 3, meaning that each household group is distanced from other groups in the auditorium. When moving inside the building our preparations such as staggered arrival times and social distancing measures help to ensure that households do not mix. For full details of all our safety measures visit

If you are attending an event and have already booked a bubble of seats with people from 2 or more households (or support bubbles), or if you are traveling to a show from outside of the area please email [email protected] who will be able to advise on your options.

You can book with confidence that should you ever book a performance which has to be cancelled you will be offered a refund, credit or transfer to another performance. And if you can’t attend a performance due to ill health, we’ll credit your account or transfer you so that you can enjoy a performance with us at a later date.

Booking tickets

You can book for future events online 24 hours a day.

The Box Office will reopen from Monday 19 October for phone and in-person bookings. The opening hours will be Mon – Sat 12 - 6pm, whilst our phone lines will remain open until 30 minutes before a performance, on performance days.

If you have any specific queries please send us an email at [email protected].

This email is monitored Monday to Friday 10am until 4.00pm, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
