Blackfriars August Refurbishment Shutdown

Friday 13th July

As is the case every year Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre will be closing its Box Office during August for building maintenance. However this year due to the installation of a new lift in our Foyer area we will be closing the whole building for 4 weeks from the 5th August - 2nd September inclusive. 

This is a very exciting time for us as the new lift will give disabled access to our first floor level allowing people with physical difficulties ie: Wheelchair users or people who struggle with stairs, access to our Upper Room, Middle Studio, Audrey's Bar and also allowing performers with accessibility issues to use our Stage and back stage area. 

During the above 4 weeks tickets for all shows can be purchased online via our website at and emails and answer phones will be monitored should you need to contact us directly. 

The phone booking line 01205 363108 will re-open on the 20th August from 1pm - 4pm Mon - Fri.

All going to plan full theatre services and Box Office usual opening will resume from Monday 3rd September. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or issues regarding the above. 

Thank you in advance for your support and patience during this time. 

Blackfriars undoubtedly plays a very important role as Boston's centre for entertainment and the arts. It is home to two very successful local amateur dramatic and operatic groups, as well as hosting a varied program of professional stage productions.
