A Message from the Artistic Director of The Queen Mother Theatre

We’d like to thank you, friends and patrons, for being so patient while the Queen Mother Theatre has been in enforced lockdown during the coronavirus emergency.


Like all theatres we are unsure when we will be open for customers but as soon as we’re allowed to open our doors, we will – we promise.


Even now we have plays in preparation, ready to go. When we first open, of course, whenever that is – we will have to limit audience size due to social distancing, but we hope you will understand this is for your safety and you’ll want to support us as we bring drama back to North Herts.


We are also exploring outdoor events as these might be possible a little earlier than indoor ones.


In the mean time we are thinking about potential online events and you can keep updated by going to the QMT Facebook page. More news as we get it.


Thank you for your continued loyalty and please keep yourselves and your families safe!


Best wishes,

Rory Reynolds,

Artistic Director – The Queen Mother Theatre – Hitchin
