We all need to work together to help keep one another safe.

We strongly encourage all audience members to check in using the NHS QR code or provide contact details using the Track and Trace form to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

At the end of the performance please ensure that you dispose of your rubbish and take all of your belongings home with you.

You may be directed to an alternative exit to help social distancing.

KEEPING OUR VENUES SAFE

FACE COVERINGS (unless exempt)

To help us to keep each other safe we are continuing to ask our audiences to wear a face covering at all times unless eating or drinking.
Our staff will continue to wear face coverings.

CLEANING

We have an enhanced cleaning regime within our venues to ensure all touch point areas are regularly sanitised. This includes door handles and handrails.

Items such as booster seats and hearing enhancement headsets are also sanitised and available for use.

Our venues including auditoria seating undergo regular antiviral fogging.

VENTILATION

Our auditoria have ventilation designed to draw in fresh air from outside, and extract accumulated expelled air from inside. Filters are changed as part of regular routine maintenance. Ventilation will run to circulate fresh air two hours before a performance, during and afterwards.

You may want to bring an extra layer in case you feel cold.

Windows to the foyer areas will also be opened to ensure fresh air circulation.

SANITISING

We have hand sanitiser stations positioned at the entrances to all our venues and auditoria. Please use hand sanitiser on entry.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

To help protect other audience members and our staff, please continue to maintain a safe social distance when queuing and moving around our venues. Please keep to the left and limit your movement around the venue.

As venues are now permitted to open at full capacity, you may have to pass others or sit next to someone else. To mitigate risk we are asking all audience members, unless exempt or under 11, to wear a face covering (except when eating or drinking).
