Typically Tina

Live entertainment will return to The Deco with a socially-distanced celebration of Tina Turner after the Covid-19 lockdown.

We’re re-opening with ‘Typically Tina’, an awesome tribute show, on Friday, September 11th. And we cannot wait to get back to putting on shows.

Seats will be removed or covered over to make sure everyone stays apart, and we are very much looking forward to doing what we love again: putting on great entertainment.

Said House Manager Jill Roach: “We thought we would run with the Tina Turner show as the production company wanted were keen to do it, and and it’ll be a nice test for us to see if it goes to plan with our one-way system and the other facilities we’re putting in.

“Obviously things could change, but as we start to emerge out out of lockdown we decided we would put a stake in the ground and say, ‘we’re going to reopen the doors’ – even if it’s just serving ice cream – on September 1st, then have the concert on the 11th.”

The Tina Turner tribute concert, by performer Karin Bello, was meant to be on May 15, but like every other show at every other venue, was postponed by the outbreak of the Covid-19 crisis.

“Everyone will have their temperature checked on arrival, there will be a one-way system around the venue, spaced out seating to maintain a two-metre buffer between groups, and staff will be wearing PPE,” said Jill.

“I hope we can get back to some sort of normality – I think people have it engrained in them to social distance and that’s the way to go for the foreseeable future.”

“I can’t wait to get it open again,” she said. “It was so exciting to relaunch last Christmas, and now we need to get people’s confidence back, but so many people have been extremely supportive towards us, and we’ve lots of fantastic entertainment lined-up way into next year.”

Tickets for Typically Tina are £18.50, with a £5 discount available with code FIRST. For more information, visit thedeco.co.uk.

We hope you are all staying safe and well, and also remaining upbeat and positive. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we start returning to normality.

What is keeping us positive is some awesome entertainment for you to enjoy at The Old Savoy, home of The Deco Theatre later in the year. Take a look at the ‘what’s on’ section of this website – www.thedeco.co.uk/events/  – to see the variety of shows we have coming up, including those postponed and now rescheduled due to the current crisis.

We know things are a bit tight for many of us at the moment, so to help, we’re offering a deposit scheme to all shows – you pay just 25% of the fee when you book online for shows scheduled from August 1st.

The full payment will then be taken on July 1st. If you need an accessibility seat, please email admin@thedeco.co.uk with details of what show you want to book for, and telephone number and we’ll sort it.

Stay safe – and see you soon!

 

Christmas might seem a lifetime away at the moment, but let’s all stay positive and look forward, and ahead, to when normality returns. What better to look forward to than a good fun, family Christmas Panto. And if you buy your tickets for Sleeping Beauty (December 10th to 31st) before, and including March 31st, you pay just £12.50 for ANY seat in the house.

In the light of the current crisis and uncertainty, we have set up a deposit scheme, for customers who wish to take advantage of the £12.50 offer but are worried about committing to it with what’s going on at the moment.

It means you can secure your seats, and the special offer price, by paying 20 per cent now, and the balance ‪on Tuesday, September 1st – we will contact you to take the balance. So, if you book, for instance, 4 tickets this week you pay just £10 deposit now, then the £40 bargain price balance on September 1st.

Please book online only, and use promotion code ‘Deposit’. Click on the link to make your booking. The offer is available until, and including March 31st – a week today. https://www.thedeco.co.uk/event/sleeping-beauty-christmas-2020/

We are working incredibly hard rescheduling shows that are having to be postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Where shows have been rescheduled, tickets will automatically be valid for these future performances. But we will be in touch with all ticket holders directly, to verify that, and – if required – detail the refund process if you cannot make the rescheduled date. So far only one show, Rapunzel, on April 18th, has been cancelled, and the email you receive will detail the process of your refund.
