Please be kind

In these stressful times please try to remember that Weymouth Pavilion is run by human beings; ordinary people with feelings that can be hurt. Abusive behaviour is extremely distressing.

Although few in number, the staff here are a team. We work together and we make decisions together – always with the aim of providing a safe environment for you to enjoy and be entertained.

Recent decisions to cancel shows were not taken lightly. We have the safety of many to take into consideration; we have to think about performers, staff, volunteers and patrons.

It’s not just about providing a ‘Covid Secure’ environment – there is much more to take into consideration. If we do not have enough trained personnel for each show to take place safely, then we are very sorry, but the show cannot proceed.

The entertainment industry has taken severe beating over the last 16 months or so. We, as a business and individuals are feeling battered and bruised and we do not need to be subjected to upsetting phone calls, emails or social media messages.

We are trying our hardest to rebuild the future – to ensure the continued success of a friendly local theatre for all generations to appreciate.

We still have a way to go so please help us on our journey.
