“The Culture secretary’s announcement that a relaxation will not be considered until November at the earliest led us to this decision,” the theatre says.

The venue and the box office remain closed with a small team currently working to contact ticket-holders by email in the coming weeks, tye theatre says: “If you hold tickets for the pantomime or for a show in the autumn, please wait to be contacted.

“If possible we would ask you to retain your tickets for any rescheduled dates, doing this is the best way to support us through to reopening. We would ask for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve everything.”

The White Rock’s announcement concludes with a commitment to make the pantomime in 2021, “brighter, funnier and more spectacular than ever before.

“After 2020 we’re all going to need it!” the statement concludes.
