October was a record month for ticket sales at the re-opened and refurbished OSO, with the new Wednesday night piano bar proving to be an instant hit. Now, sadly, we have had to close for another month.
Thankfully, we have been able to reschedule November shows including The Revellers Society for dates early in the New Year, and while the theatre doors will once again close for the four week mini-lockdown, the popular outdoor pop-up café will stay open for takeaways. Everyone can support the OSO by stopping off to pick up a coffee and pastry while out on our ‘One plus One’ daily walk.
You can also order alcoholic drinks at the pop-up if you email us in advance. Click here to find out more.
Ignite your Christmas spirit at our annual fair! It's the perfect place to find a wealth of seasonal goodies, and to snap up some extra-special Christmas gifts. Entrance is free!
Come to the cabaret...
By opening out all our studios into one large auditorium and setting up in a ‘cabaret-style’ layout with reserved seating, we have created socially distanced theatre that still delivers a fabulous audience experience.
You can book an exclusive reserved table for either one, two, four or six people. We are delighted to offer table service inside the theatre as an option to visiting the theatre bar. Best of all, thanks to our cabaret-style layout we can achieve viable social distancing while still pricing tickets for our standard theatre events at only £15 per person.
Given our reduced capacity we recommend you book early to secure your seats.
Book with confidence. If your performance is cancelled or COVID-19 regulations prevent you from attending, we will offer you a full refund.
From Crisis to Drama: Supporting Our Reopening
Having been closed as a performance space since March, with no income, we are now looking to raise £25,000 to support the reopening. In addition to booking tickets, you can help in three ways:
Make a donation of £20 or more by card at our pop-up café and receive a free ‘thank-you’ coffee, tea or non-alcoholic cold drink.
Click here to donate online. A huge thanks to everyone who has already donated.
Sponsor a performance this Autumn, perhaps as a family or group of friends, a street WhatsApp group or a local business. Take a look at our Autumn Season and contact us at to discuss the possibilities.
