The Anvil, The Haymarket and The Forge are closed until further notice and we are in the process of rescheduling or cancelling all performances until the end of August.
We will be contacting all ticket holders, but please note that with limited staff operating, this may take longer than usual. If you have purchased tickets through an agency, please contact them direct for refunds.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
How can I support Anvil Arts?
We are working hard to deal with the financial implications to The Anvil and The Haymarket of this closure period. As an independent educational charity, we rely on contributions to support our work. Please consider donating the cost of your ticket to The Anvil Trust. We are very grateful to those who have already chosen to do this. Alternatively you can use the option below.
What happens if the show I have booked for has been rescheduled?
Your tickets will automatically be transferred to the new performance, so there is no need to contact us.
If you are unable to make the rescheduled date, please email the box office or use our online contact form to receive a refund of the cost of your ticket. Alternatively, please consider donating the cost of your ticket to The Anvil Trust charity to support The Anvil and The Haymarket during this period of closure. Ticket holders will be contacted, but this may take a little longer than usual with limited staff operating.
What happens if the show I have booked for has been cancelled?
You have three options:
1. Donate the full amount: the full amount of the cost of your tickets will be donated to The Anvil Trust.
2. Donate a portion: an amount of your choosing will be donated to The Anvil Trust. The remaining balance can be refunded or credited.
3. Return my tickets: this gives you two options: credit, a credit to your Anvil Arts account to be used for future events (not a direct refund to your card); or refund, a direct refund to your original payment method.
Ticket holders will be contacted, but this may take a little longer than usual with limited staff operating.
What happens if I used an agency to book my tickets?
Please contact the appropriate agency directly for refunds.
When will I get my refund and how long does it take to receive my money?
Once processed, it will take between 2 - 5 working days for you to receive your refund. We are processing refunds as quickly as possible so please bear with us.
I've emailed you but not heard anything, why?
We are operating with limited staff so will answer your query as quickly as possible. We thank you for your patience.
When will I hear if a show I have tickets for has been rescheduled or cancelled?
The full list of shows affected is below. If you have yet to hear anything, this means we are still in talks with the promoter. We will contact you as soon as we have more information.
How can I contact you?
