Our current Covid-safety measures

We really want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to keep our audiences, artists and staff safe and comfortable in our theatre. 

We are still recommending our audiences continue wearing a face covering when moving around the building or watching a show or film, unless eating or drinking. 

Our staff will continue to wear face coverings in public areas for the foreseeable future.

We will continue to provide hand sanitiser, and there will be a supply of free face coverings at our box office.

It’s important that we keep our theatre spaces well ventilated at the moment, so they might be a degree or two cooler than usual.

The two auditoria will also undergo enhanced cleaning between every show. 

Please note there is currently no cloakroom facility at the theatre.

We have scaled back our track-and-trace system but if you would like to use it, there is a QR code on display and paper forms are also available.

And don’t forget, we’re still offering our popular at-seat drink service!

Throughout 2022, we are aiming to provide at least one socially distanced performance of any show that runs for a week or more.

There is a (hopefully small) chance that we may have to return to a socially distanced capacity by law. If we do have to reduce the capacity, we'll confirm seats based on when they were booked, with the earliest bookings being given priority.

We're proud to be See it Safely approved by Official London Theatre, and have received the Visit Britain 'We're Good to Go' industry standard mark, so you can feel confident knowing that staff, artists and audiences are always COVID-secure based on the latest government guidelines.

We will of course be reviewing all of this on a regular basis, and promise to keep you posted. Thank you, as ever, for all your wonderful support – and here’s to a happy and healthy 2022 for all of us!
