**ESQUIRES REOPENING**

We are pleased to announce that after what will have been 8 months of closure, Esquires will finally be reopening it’s doors in November for some select, socially distanced shows.

These past months have been incredibly testing for everyone, not just us. It’s been made all the more bearable by the love and support we have felt from the community around the venue and your encouragement. We want to see you all again and believe that we can run seated, socially distanced events in a safe and controlled environment. Opening back up will help secure the jobs of the staff as furlough ends and we hope it will kick start the road to recovery as we await the decision over our application to the Cultural Recovery Fund from Arts Council England.

Due to the nature of the performances and the way we have to set up tickets, Crowdfunder gold and silver cards, along with pledger legend cards will not be able to be used for these socially distanced shows, but will come into affect as soon as we are back to some kind of normality.

Following current guidelines, we will be announcing a run of weekend shows from November until the end of the year. Tickets will be sold in groups/bubbles of 4 only, with a maximum capacity of 60 people on the main stage.

Thank you for everything and your help in keeping the venue stable over these last few months, let’s move forward as one – we can’t wait to see you.
