How the Regal Theatre is progressing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BOX OFFICE IS ONLY OPEN FROM 09.30 to 12.00 Noon, MONDAY TO SATURDAY, FOR THE TIME BEING.
The Regal Theatre aims to open its doors on Friday May 21 with a programme of film and other screenings. Please keep an eye on this website, as well as local press and social media for further details.
At the moment, audience numbers remain limited to around 100 under social distancing rules, with these restrictions due to be lifted on July 19 when we hope to be able to announce a programme of live events as well as screenings.
We are working towards limited reopening of the theatre, initially with film screenings, but we have our first live performance on July 17 (limited seating) with two concerts (4.00pm and 7.30pm) given by the Carducci String Quartet. .
We will be monitoring developments closely and will update you with any news when we have it.
The Regal Theatre’s volunteers have been honoured by being awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK and equivalent to the MBE.
The Regal Theatre stands in the centre of Minehead, and is loved by the people of West Somerset for its wide ranging programme of professional and community entertainment that includes drama, film, comedy, dance, music and performance of all kinds. There are also occasional displays of work carried out by local artists.
The theatre bar is open during intervals and before each performance. It is an ideal place to meet friends and enjoy refreshments or to relax on the balcony overlooking the town centre.
The MATA Regal Theatre Company Ltd runs the theatre with the help of an army of volunteers all of whom work hard to make you feel welcome and to ensure that you enjoy a splendid night out.
Regal Theatre Gift Vouchers, of any value, are available from the Box Office.
We have completed the Lift Off! Project, but we are always grateful for funds for new projects (please see our Voucher Page , or – better still – you can support us, generally, via the localgiving.com website).
