COVID-19 Update

The David Hall is Reopening for Autumn 2020

Hello! – and welcome to The David Hall’s website, where you will find information about how Petherton Arts Trust (PAT) is planning to keep you entertained during the restraints posed by the coronavirus……

Social Distancing

In line with government regulations, PAT can accommodate a reduced number of people in The David Hall and as a result, has had to adapt its current programme of live events. So, PAT has booked several well-known and popular entertainers whose gigs are being streamed into peoples’ homes and/or a few social distancing gigs with limited tickets available. So, we would love to see you and recreate that ‘Live from The David Hall’ vibe so face masks and hand sanitiser at the ready.


Petherton Picture Show is screening one film a month from September to the end of the year, setting out seating in The David Hall so that 30 people will be accommodated and socially distanced.

For all Film Bookings, Ticket sales will close at 3pm on the day of the film.


Bookings for all online and live events can be made on the website or over the phone by calling 01460 240340 – just look for the event(s) that interest you! We are working to reinstate our Box Office Team too so please be patient with us.

When booking via the site you will be required to give details of all attendees for ‘track and trace’ and select a seat at a table to maintain groups and social distancing.

New Programme

Over the next few weeks and months PAT will be adding more events to the website but will be keeping an eye on any changes in government guidance too.

If we are ingenious and continue to be careful, we shall get through this!

Acting Chairman, Cliff Keating


Virtual Acoustic Nights

Given that Acoustic Nights also cannot go ahead in the usual way, a group of PAT Board Members are creating videos of individual performances at The Hall and releasing them via You Tube and Facebook. These can also be viewed via TDH website here.


PAT’s Annual General Meeting will take place in October, when the impact of the coronavirus on venues such as The David Hall will be reviewed and, if possible, changes made to the way events are being held. It is very much hoped that the programme of live gigs will take place for the start of 2021 but if not, PAT will continue to be innovative with streamed performances and other acceptable ways of entertaining its supporters.

NB: All events are to be pre-booked only via the website. We are unable to accommodate any 'walk ups' on the night of the event.
