  • GSC cannot accept responsibility for any damage caused by you to these premises.

For our Open-Air performances both the stage and audience seating are completely uncovered. GSC kindly reminds you that the British weather can be changeable and localised.

GSC will perform in all weathers, and will only abandon a performance in the event of extreme bad weather.

The Rain

  • Performances are never abandoned before the advertised starting time. Once underway a performance will continue even if it does begin to rain, and the company will make every effort to complete the performance.
  • GSC reserves the right to stop and start the action as necessary.
  • If abandonment is unavoidable, you may exchange your ticket for any remaining performance during the same season subject to availability. In this instance, please retain your ticket for validation purposes. Refunds are NOT given for abandoned performances due to weather.
  • Decisions on abandonment are made solely by GSC and such decisions will not be made until the scheduled start time.
  • We kindly request that umbrellas are not used as they create problems of noise and visibility.

The Sun

  • A sunny day is perfect weather for open-air theatre, but please note that both audience and actors are not undercover. Performances will continue and not be cancelled. Refunds or exchanges cannot be made due to the heat.
  • We advise you to bring sun-cream and hats, and wherever possibly whilst picnicking and in the interval use the shade of the trees and buildings. Parasols may be used but you may asked to sit further back so as not obscure the view of other audience members.
  • Also make sure you have a good supply of water with you.
