BARNSLEY Civic is set to open its box office next week in its phased reopening of the theatre.

The town centre theatre was forced to close its door in March following the coronavirus outbreak.

Now, the Civic is set to reopen its telephone and physical box office on September 8 with revised hours.

The phone lines will be open on Monday until Friday from 10am until 5pm. The physical box office will be open from 2pm until 5pm.

Visitors are encouraged to use hand sanitiser upon entry and face coverings must be worn in the building.

A spokesperson from Barnsley Civic said: “Thank you for bearing with us during this difficult time.

“We look forward to seeing you all soon.”
