Wet Weather Policy

Because you just never know…

Here is our policy for wet weather conditions for outdoor events at Shrewsbury Castle.

  • It is unlikely we will cancel a performance before the time it is due to start. Even bad weather can quickly change for the better and we are eternal optimists!

  • We will only cancel/stop a performance if the conditions become genuinely unsafe, usually due to things like flooding, high winds, or a lightning storm.

  • The performance will continue in light to medium rain. In heavy/torrential rain, the show may be paused temporarily before continuing if the rain passes. If heavy rain is persistent, it may be decided to stop the show entirely.

  • If the show is cancelled or curtailed, we will offer ticketholders a full or partial refund as appropriate, and will aim to contact you on the next working day with further instructions.
