LOCAL attractions are feeling the impact of the coronavirus crisis with many remaining closed for the foreseeable future.

The Kirk Theatre in Pickering said they would review the situation at the end of May.

Luke Arnold, theatre manager, said: “The theatre and Pickering Musical Society now face an uncertain future. We will, of course, honour any purchased tickets and offer a full refund, via contacting the box office, online or by phone. We would also ask that you consider if you are able to do so waiving your refund. This will help us a great deal in paying the cancellation and rebooking fees for our events.”

Helmsley Walled Garden has also closed for the duration of the coronavirus outbreak.

Marketing manager Tricia Harris said: “This is a difficult time and we want in whatever small way to do what we can to help everyone to stay in touch. I will be continuing to post on our social media from my own garden. It won’t be the same but we will be able to follow spring’s progress, there’ll be hints and tips for your own garden and there will be some light-hearted material too.

“We are, of course, dependent on the income we get from visitor entry and our Friends to carry on maintaining and developing the garden and supporting those who need us.”

Beck Isle Museum’s opening has also been delayed.

Manager Sarah Maultby said: “The museum continues to be run by volunteers and has no regular funding, depending completely on the admission fees paid by visitors, together with donations, to meet all our running costs.

“When the museum is able to open, we will be keen to welcome new volunteers to help us keep this amazing collection open to the public.”
