We're ready to welcome you back!

19 July 2021

PAC will reopen on Tuesday 20th July having been closed to the public for 491 days due to the pandemic.

We have been working hard over the last month 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. Our main aim is to ensure your visitor experience at PAC is safe, secure and enjoyable.

You will notice some changes when you visit the venue including:

  • Protective screens on the box office and bar
  • Hand sanitising stations throughout the building
  • Covid safety signage
  • One-way system at the box office
  • Contactless payments at the bar & box office
  • Medical grade air purifiers within the auditorium
  • Reduced capacity for all screenings/events until September



We have worked closely with the Music Venue Trust, Arts Council England, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Pocklington Town Council to ensure we have all of the necessary safety requirements in place for your return to the venue.

PAC staff members will continue to wear face coverings and take lateral flow tests prior to entering the building, and whilst not mandatory, we strongly encourage you to do the same to protect yourselves as well as fellow audience members, venue staff and performers. PAC staff will still be working under extraordinary circumstances, despite the easing of restrictions, and we politely ask you treat them all with understanding and respect.


We are determined that PAC will weather this storm and emerge from the situation more vibrant than ever. 2021/22 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 have been increasing the venue's online artistic output over the last year, we are very much 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 welcoming you back to PAC in the coming weeks and months.


If you need to contact the venue 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
