A popular Suffolk theatre has closed its doors following Governemnt advice amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The Quay theatre in Sudbury, which has been screening films, live shows and performances since 1981, has announced it is now shut to the public amid the crisis.
Theatre goers will no longer be able to book tickets for any shows scheduled for a performance up until the end of May and all current ticket holders will be contacted in due course.
The theatre is requesting customers not to seek refunds as they are hoping to reschedule cancelled shows for next year.
