FTH Theatre & Hippodrome

Latest Updates

  • Will Beauty and the Beast go ahead as planned?

    After careful consideration and in light of the most recent guidelines issued by the Scottish Government, it is with enormous regret that we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 pantomime, Beauty and the Beast. However we are not saying goodbye completely, as the pantomime will be back for our Christmas season in 2021.

    We are in the process of finalising the schedule for next year and our Box Office team will then be contacting everyone who has booked tickets for Beauty and the Beast as soon as possible with options to transfer your booking to 2021; you may wish to review your booking and other options including refunds and credit towards tickets for other shows will be also be available. In the meantime please bear with us and thank you for your support and patience.

  • I’ve booked tickets for a show at FTH – will it be going ahead?

    Following advice from the Scottish Government relating to social distancing measures to reduce the transmission of the virus (COVID-19), Falkirk Community Trust has taken the decision to close FTH.  Falkirk Community Trust will offer a full refund and have requested customers who have paid in cash or booked in person to email bookings@falkirkcommunitytrust.org with the name of the show, date, venue and your own details.  Bookings made via our website or by phone will be refunded automatically.  Falkirk Community Trust will aim to process refunds as soon as we can.  FTH will remain closed indefinitely and will re-open in accordance with Scottish Government advice.  We will post updates on our website.

  • How long will FTH/Hippodrome Cinema be closed?

    They will be closed until further notice. Please check our website for updates. 

  • Will Christmas events be going ahead this year?

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic it is unlikely that we will be able to provide the same Christmas experience as we have done in previous years.  However, we are in discussions to agree on what we could safely offer our customers this year and we will advise you as soon as we know through our social media channels and website

  • Do you have a reopening date for FTH Theatre?

    The guidance from the Scottish Government is that all performing arts venues must remain closed to ‘the public but rehearsal, recording/broadcasting of performances [are] permitted; theatres can be used for the purposes of hosting blood transfusion sessions.’  As there is no touring theatre/music/comedy performances available, most theatres in Scotland are remaining closed until the New Year at the earliest and, even then, there is uncertainty as to whether it will be financially viable for venues to operate with reduced capacity.  Feedback from the voluntary arts sector, similarly, is that companies are reluctant to start back until restrictions on social distancing, singing and performing live music are eased.  Arts and culture are suffering badly from the impact of lockdown and ongoing restrictions and we certainly cannot wait until we are able to open FTH Theatre again.
