The Corn Exchange, which is run by Cambridge Live - Cambridge City Council’s events arm - said in statement: “We are currently working on customer safety and Covid-related information in advance to reopening, which will be sending directly to customers via email prior to each performance.

“Our box office counter service and phonelines will remain closed for the time being, however the team can be reached by emailing tickets@cambridgelive.org.uk. They will be responding to emails between 10am-5pm on weekdays, so please get in touch if you have any questions about your tickets or any of our shows.

“We will be operating a pop-up box office on show days for those of you needing to collect tickets for upcoming events.

“We cannot wait to welcome you back to the Corn Exchange and share incredible performances and long lasting memories with all of our customers.”
