The Capitol Horsham


25 February 2021

Following the Government’s roadmap to ease Lockdown restrictions, we very much hope to confirm a re-opening date soon.  Our first shows will have socially distanced seating and as soon as it is safe to do so, we will return to full capacity audiences.

Please keep an eye on our social media channels for new shows and films as they are confirmed.

For any shows which are re-scheduled, customers will be offered the chance to postpone to the new date or receive a refund.

Although our phone lines are currently closed you can email us: if you have any queries.

We will continue to keep this webpage updated with the latest information and up-to-date details can also be found on the Government website:

We can't wait to welcome you back!
