It has been worth the wait. We're thrilled to have reopened our theatre with an amazing programme.


We are very fortunate that by opening out all our studios into one large auditorium and setting up in a ‘cabaret-style’ layout with reserved table seating, we will be able to welcome you to a socially distanced theatre that will still deliver a fabulous audience experience.


  • You are invited to book an exclusive reserved table for either one, two, four or six people.

  • Our bar, theatre foyer and toilets have been redesigned to create more space and improve movement around the venue.

  • We are delighted to offer table service inside the theatre as an alternative to visiting the theatre bar.

  • 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.


How to book:


  • Browse our listings below and follow the links to our booking service, TicketSource.

  • You book by table. We have exclusive tables available for either, one, two, four or six people. Please book for your whole party, as table numbers are fixed.

  • After selecting the number of seats for your table, please read and confirm agreement of our ‘safe and secure’ policy.

  • At the bottom of the same page, you are welcome to let us know of any specific access requirements, for example if you use a wheelchair. This will help us to reserve you an appropriate table.

  • Book with confidence. If your performance is cancelled or COVID-19 regulations prevent you from attending, we will offer you a full refund.

If the show you are wanting to attend is sold out, you can now sign up to our waiting list and we will let you know if more tickets become available.


Please consider adding a donation to your booking to help us meet the cost of reopening. You can also donate directly online, in person at our Pop-Up Café, or even sponsor a show.


We look forward to welcoming you back to the OSO!
