Due to the current coronavirus crisis, Newport Live venues remain closed to the public until further notice.

Please find below an update on our services during this time.

Memberships including Integrated Swim and Tennis Programme

If you have a membership with Newport Live, you do not need to take any action, your membership has been automatically frozen from the day we closed, this applies to monthly, fixed term and annual members. We will not be collecting any direct debits during our period of enforced closure. 

Swimming Lessons

All swimming lessons following our closure are now frozen with immediate effect and existing credits will remain in place until we are able to resume the lessons. For those of you with a direct debit for swimming lessons, you do not need to take any action.  We are not collecting any direct debits during the period of enforced closure. 

Once we are in a position to reopen we will make you aware of our start up processes together with when we are able to welcome you back and to restart you the swimming lessons with us.

Bookings and Pre-booked Events

One of our team will be in touch with any customers who have pre-booked activities or sessions across all our venues. We ask customers to be patient with us during this time as we have very large volumes to deal with, a reduced workforce and limited access to our systems. 

Performances at The Riverfront

For shows in April, we have contacted the majority of our bookers via email and phone to give you updates on your ticketing options, but for some customers the details we hold on file for you are either incorrect or outdated. If you have yet to hear from us please follow the below guidance and make sure you update the contact details we have on file for you.

If you have tickets booked for any of these events, we will automatically transfer tickets across to the new date and your tickets will remain valid and your seat numbers will be the same.
