TILTED WIG PRESENTS WASHINGTON IRVING’S

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

BY PHILIP MEEKS

-

Welcome to Sleepy Hollow. Population 436.
May you never leave!

With Hallowmas celebrations fast approaching, the residents of Sleepy Hollow spin tall tales of legends and unsightly entities. But who can tell truth from nightmare?

Ichabod Crane enters an eerie world of secrets and unsettling tradition as he arrives in Sleepy Hollow to become the town teacher. While quickly finding friendship with the town patriarch and his spirited daughter, his presence is not wholly welcome.

But not all is as it seems, for Ichabod Crane harbours his own dark secret. He is not in Sleepy Hollow by chance. When disturbing events overwhelm the small town, he finds himself swept up in a dangerous mystery which leaves him doubting his own sanity.

Coronation Street legends Wendi Peters and Bill Ward lead an incredible ensemble in this thrilling new adaptation. Transforming the American Dream into the American Gothic, Sleepy Hollow unleashes one of the most terrifying monsters from the horror canon – the Headless Horseman.

Visiting the theatre safely

As we welcome you back to the Yvonne Arnaud, our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of our visitors and staff. 

How we can all work together to stay safe:

  • We ask that you consider others and continue to wear a face covering (unless exempt) whilst in our venue.
  • Please consider your distance from others and follow the one-way system around the building.
  • Please take care over handwashing. We will continue to provide hand sanitiser around the building.
  • All public areas will have continue to have enhanced cleaning and regular fogging.
  • All staff, performers, and volunteers will continue to be regularly tested and will wear face coverings.

We ask that whatever your views on social distancing and mask wearing, you respect everyone in the theatre and their choices.

Making a booking.

To reduce contact, tickets will only continue to only be available via email. You will not be able to collect tickets from the Box Office. If you are able to open your tickets, from your email, on your mobile phone or tablet, you can just show them to us on this device rather than printing them at home.

We are now selling most performances at full capacity, even if they were originally sold as socially distanced. You are now able to book for groups of any size and with those outside of your household. 

If you would prefer not to be too close to other visitors, please contact the box office and we will do our best to recommend a performance or seats which may offer more space. 

We are also now offering socially distanced seating in the Circle for selected performances, please check individual show pages to see where this is applicable.

Book with confidence!

Rest assured, should you have to isolate due to Covid-19 when you are due to come to a booked event, we will happily help you out.

Where possible, we will move you to a different performance of the same show. If this isn't possible, we will give you a gift voucher for the price of your ticket, valid for 12 months from date of issue, so that you can come and see something else when your isolation is over!

Please contact the Box Office with as much notice as possible before the show to arrange this. We are unable to do this retrospectively after a show.

As is always the case, should an event be cancelled we will issue a full refund.

Whilst you are at the theatre.

We ask that if you, or any of your party, meet any of the following criteria on the day of the performance, that you do not attend:

  • In the last 10 days, have developed Covid-19 symptoms.
  • In the last 10 days, have tested positive for Covid-19.
  • In the last 10 days, have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19.
  • In the last 10 days, have been contacted by NHS Test and Trace system and told to self-isolate.

You are no longer required to undergo a temperature check, or to check-in on the NHS Test and Trace app.

There will be multiple hand sanitiser stations set up around the building. We ask that you continue to take care over handwashing, consider your proximity to others, and consider the safety of others and wear a face covering (unless exempt) when in our venue.

Our Café will be open before each event. We serve a range of alcoholic, hot, and soft drinks, as well as snacks and light meals. You can find out more about our food and drink offer, and view our current menu here.
