Thursday, 19th March 2020
Following the advice of the UK Government and increased measures to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to temporarily close Elgin Town Hall to the public, from this evening (Thursday, 19 March).
This is an incredibly complex and fast-moving situation and it is with a heavy heart that we must suspend our operations until further notice. The safety of staff and visiting public is our number one priority.
We will be in contact with ticket holders as soon as we can. For the moment, our Box Office team can still be reached through email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bear with us as we do our best to answer a very large volume of customer enquiries as quickly as possible.
We will be processing refunds for all cancelled or postponed events that were sold through our online box office, please contact your point of sale for events not sold through our box office.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all back and making great memories once this is behind us all. In the meantime, stay safe.
The Board of Elgin Town Hall for the Community.
Ticket holders of cancelled events will automatically receive refunds to their purchase card in the coming weeks. Please understand that our reduced team of volunteers are working to ensure everyone is refunded, ticket holders of cancelled or postponed events will be contacted directly by us. If the event was not sold via the ETH box office, please contact your point of purchase for a refund. We are unable to arrange refunds for events not sold through our box office.
