PAC has been working on plans over the lockdown period that have been based on re-opening the cinema in early November, with live events resuming in January 2021, and this remains the case following recent Government announcements. There are quite a few reasons and factors why we are not rushing to re-open including staff and customer safety and financial viability. PAC's main focus is on planning the safe reopening of the building, ensuring all staff are trained appropriately and making sure the venue has all its new systems, resources and processes in place and working well. Feedback is currently being sought from staff, volunteers and customers regarding the safe reopening of the venue and this will be vital to the success of this process.

The current Government guidance, in conjunction with the layout of the building, make it financially unviable to reopen the cinema any earlier. Capacity is currently reduced to less than a quarter, with socially distancing restrictions, and film content is still very limited with a high percentage of releases delayed until next year.

We are extremely grateful to everyone that has contributed to the venue's fundraising campaign. Launched in late March, to date this has raised £22.2k via donations, a JustGiving page and several grants. We are determined that PAC will weather this storm and emerge from the situation more vibrant than ever. 2021, Covid permitting, will see a wonderfully diverse range of live events being staged at PAC alongside a fantastic line-up of films, exhibitions, community events and private hires. Whilst we will be increasing the venue's online artistic output over the coming months, we are very aware there is no substitute to watching a live performance and sharing this experience with fellow audience members. Janet, James, Sara and the venue's Management Team look forward to the time when this can resume.

The box office will remain closed during this period, if you need to contact us regarding a ticket transfer and/or refund please email info@pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk and we'll get back to you ASAP.

Keep safe.

Best wishes
