Keeping you Covid safe!

Crowd Management - to reduce crowding we are making use of the exit doors as above to separate out people at key moments. Please enter and leave the theatre using the right and left auditorium doors on the side of the theatre seats 1-16 through the right-hand entrance and seats 17 to 32 through the left entrance. Please do not enter using the bar entrance unless seated in the circle.

You are not required to wear a mask when seated but in consideration of others please do so when moving around the venue. Socially distanced seating is available, please call the box office to book.

Track and trace information accompanies your booking but if you wish you may also check-in using the QR codes situated in and around the bar area with your NHS APP

Please avoid loitering in the bar area and send only one person to buy drinks, moving either outside or to your seat afterwards.

Ventilation - the theatre is very well ventilated with airflow through the floor and wind catchers in the roof. We have added fans and directed them to help move air up towards the roof vents. Combined with the internal heat being higher than the outside air there should be a continuous flow of air to ventilate the theatre

Cast bubble - in order to try to avoid the cast isolating and closing the show they sadly cannot meet the audience after the show as in previous years.

We have been awarded the "See if Safely" accreditation to ensure that we are doing all we can for a safe return to the theatre for our audiences.
