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’re also really conscious that, if any of our actors shows symptoms and has to isolate, we could lose an entire show for the rest of the run.

We would really appreciate it if you could read the following guidelines:

Face coverings are required throughout your visit (except when eating and drinking) to help keep everyone safe, for visitors aged 12+. Obviously, there are people who are exempt from this rule, and we’d ask you to remember that not all disabilities are visible: please respect and be kind to others. 

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. 

We’re still asking you to sanitise your hands, and our one-way system remains in place. 

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!

In 2022, all shows will be sold at full capacity, but with those that run for a week or more we'll aim to have at least one socially distanced performance. 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 will confirm seats based on when they were booked, with the earliest bookings being given priority. Further details are on the web page for each relevant event.

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 future for all of us!
