News from Upstairs at the GatehouseClick Here To See Our Story of 2020

As you know, due to the UK lockdown, all theatres are still closed.

However, following the Prime Minister’s roadmap announcement on 22nd February, Upstairs at the Gatehouse will hopefully re-open on 1st June 2021

This opening date is subject to Government confirmation that the roadmap dates will not change.

The Christmas show is now our Summer show and we are very pleased that
‘FOREVER PLAID’ will be our first post lockdown production.

Tickets are now on sale. Please click here to book online.

This wonderfully entertaining musical will play between 1st and 27th June with performances every night at 7.30pm (except Sundays and Mondays) There will be matinees on Sundays at 4pm and one Saturday matinee at 3pm on 26th June. The show runs for 80mins with no interval

On Tuesday 22nd June there will be a special Highgate Festival performance, with a post-show talk with cast and creatives. 

We have taken many precautions to keep our audience safe from the nasty virus. At our one and only performance (since 16th March 2020) – the open dress rehearsal of ‘Forever Plaid’ on 15th December – the audience were temperature checked on arrival and everyone wore masks throughout the performance. We had a ‘full house’ of 40 people who all sat socially distanced and we received many favourable comments, not only about the show, but also about how safe people felt in our auditorium whilst watching live entertainment.  

These protocols will stay in place for the first three weeks of the run of Forever Plaid. After 21st June we will refer to government guidelines regarding socially distanced seating. 

‘Monday Night Magic’ has been rescheduled to Monday 28th June at 7.30pm
‘Margaret: Rebel Royal’ to Wednesday 30th June at 7.30pm
‘The Yalta Game’ & ‘After-play’ are rescheduled for 6th – 11th July
‘Naked Justice’ is scheduled for 14th – 18th July
‘A Modest Little Man’ is rescheduled for 31st August – 5th September
All tickets are now on sale. Please click here to book online.

Tickets for shows within the Camden Fringe Festival will be on sale from Wednesday 12th May.

We look forward to welcoming you back to The Gatehouse very soon.
