The Assembly Rooms in Derby will be closed for a minimum of 18 months following a serious fire just over a month ago, the city council has confirmed.
Customers who have purchased tickets for shows later this year at the Assembly Rooms will be reimbursed.
Adam Wilkinson, Chief Executive, said: “The Council is committed to a significant cultural facility in the city centre but due to the on-going assessment of damage after the fire, it has become clear we cannot re-open the building as quickly as we would like."
"We are continuing to work through the various options open to us, based on either refurbishing or replacing the current building.”
A street closed since a blaze on the roof of a multi-story car park at Derby's Assembly Rooms will reopen later.
Full Street is due to reopen to traffic today, following the major fire on Friday 14 March.
The venue itself will remain closed until May 11th. Nine shows had to be cancelled, and 6 have been rescheduled.
The road was closed over concerns the fire had left the car park structurally unsound.
Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service is encouraging people to test their smoke alarms when they change their clocks on Sunday.
The service says the 'tick-tock test' will help to protect people and prevent deaths. 211 people died in fires in the home last year.
