THEATRE fans will be able to pick up their tickets in town, thanks to new box office – at a food shop.
Beechwood Fine Foods in Tring has been chosen by The Court Theatre, Pendley, to be a point in the town where people can buy tickets for shows.
Sarah Murray, who runs the Frogmore Street business with her husband Toby, said: “Basically, we are now the in-town box office so the Court Theatre gave us tickets for all forthcoming shows and performances.
“It is nice to be able to provide that service for the community.
“It is great. Because of our opening hours, we are accessible for an extended period every day more than other outlets and we are open seven days a week.”
The new ticket outlet is only for making personal buys by cash or cheque and not for telephone sales.
The box office at the theatre on Station Road, Tring, is only open when shows are on.
The shop is open from 7.30am to 5.30pm on weekdays, 8.30am to 5pm on Saturdays and 10.30am to 3pm on Sunday. Tickets can also be reserved by visiting www.image-house.co.uk/courttheatre.
