Covid NI: Belfast theatre announces closure and cancellation of keep…

A leading Belfast theatre has announced its closure until the New Year and the cancellation of remaining shows.

Bosses at the MAC in Belfast city centre said the decision has been taken due to the impact of Covid-19.

In a Facebook post on Monday, the theatre said: “We’re very sorry to let you know that the MAC will be closed today, and will keep closed until Wednesday 5 January 2022, when we will reopen at 9am.

“Unfortunately the impact of Covid-19 has led the MAC team to this decision, along with the cancellation of the remaining shows in the run of The Untold Truth of Captain Hook. All ticket bookers have been contacted via email by our Box Office team.

“If you were planning a visit to the MAC galleries or Cafe Bar this week, we do hope you’ll be able to re-schedule your visit when we’re open again.

“In the average time, stay safe and we’ll see you in 2022.”

The decision was announced on the same day that a number of fresh coronavirus restrictions come into force in Northern Ireland.

The new rules, agreed by the Executive parties last week, are designed to suppress rising case numbers amid the spread of the Omicron variant.
