For your peace of mind, we have listed below the measures we will be keeping in place so we can all keep safe as we return to enjoying live performances – we are in this together.

At The Theatre

  • Please use the hand sanitiser stations when you enter and exit the building and auditorium
  • Unless you are exempt, please wear a face mask inside the building and especially within the auditorium, where the seating will place you in close contact with other audience members. We ask all patrons to keep their masks on when seated, not just whilst moving around. Wearing a face mask helps to protect yourself, your fellow audience members, our staff and artists
  • Where possible, please bring as few belongings as possible to help maintain an open space throughout the building, allowing people to keep their distance. We are still able to accommodate prams for our children’s performances, so you can be sure of the same welcoming experience
  • We do ask customers to maintain a safe social distance where possible, for example when queuing to take your seats and moving around the theatre, to ensure an enjoyable experience for all
  • Please be aware that our performances will be open at full capacity so you will be sitting directly next to other people
  • Refreshments will be available from our café bar, and you are welcome to consume these in the foyer or bring drinks into the auditorium
