Cancellation of When The Lights Go On Again


It is with regret that we have had to take the decision to cancel our production of ‘When The Lights Go On Again’, which was due to have been performed at the Gladstone Theatre, Port Sunlight, this May.

This decision was not taken lightly and in view of the on-going crisis of the Covid pandemic, which had already resulted in the show being postponed twice, we felt it was the right thing to do in the continuing uncertain situation.

To those of you who have bought tickets, we thank you sincerely for your support and look forward to seeing you again at future productions.

In the meantime, here are 4 options to consider:

  1. We can issue you with a voucher to the value of your purchased tickets, redeemable against any of our future productions up until the end of 2022.
  2. You can use the already paid ticket money to become a “Friend of BOST.” (click here for more information)
  3. You can kindly donate the ticket money to BOST, to help us get through these unprecedented difficult times.
  4. We can refund you the cost of your tickets.

Please let us know which option you would like to proceed with, and we will be happy to make the necessary arrangements. We can be contacted by email at:

We’re itching to get back on stage again, whenever that might be, to enjoy theatre with our audiences once more.

Thank you again for your ongoing understanding and support.
