Cirencester theatre celebrates reopening with free tickets for NHS

NHS staff and St John Ambulance volunteers can enjoy a free performance of Stones in His Pockets courtesy of the Barn Theatre in August 2021, as a thank you for all their hard work throughout the pandemic.

To celebrate its reopening, Cirencester’s Barn Theatre is giving NHS workers and St John Ambulance volunteers two free tickets to their latest production of Stones in His Pockets, valid for any Sunday matinee performance up until Sunday 22 August 2021.

This will be the Cotswold theatre’s second show, and first since the relaxation of Covid rules on Monday 12 July 2021.

Guests are being invited to enjoy the 25th anniversary production of Marie Jones’ Olivier Award-winning comedy in Cirencester, being able claim two tickets using the code THANKYOUNHS when booking and showing a valid ID upon arrival to the performance.

Barn Theatre producer Beth George said: ‘We would not have survived the past year without the tireless work of the NHS and St John Ambulance, who have been protecting our country on the frontline of this devastating pandemic.

‘This is just a small token of our appreciation for their heroic work, and we hope that this feel-good comedy can provide an evening of much needed escapism and joy.’

Barn Theatre is still running at reduced capacity and audience members are encouraged to wear face covering when at the venue.
