  • In accordance with the latest government directive, face coverings are now mandatory for the duration of your visit, (except while you are eating and drinking) unless you are exempt for health reasons, or for children under the age of 11.
  • In accordance with government guidelines we do not currently require a vaccine passport or a negative test to attend.
  • E-tickets will be issued as standard. These do not have to be printed but can be shown on your smartphone or similar device for us to scan on entry. In order to reduce queueing and minimise contact, tickets will not be available for collection from the Box Office.
  • We will carry out enhanced cleaning of all public areas, both prior to and during performances.

Due to current circumstances relating to Covid-19, our systems are set to run full (100%) fresh air only, during rehearsals and public events for a minimum of 1.5 hours before and 1.5 hours after occupation. Our supply air is drawn in via the intake ducts on the roof, passed through a two-stage filtration system removing particulates down to between 0.3µm-1.0µm (Micro millimetres). The extract system draws air upwards and out of the auditorium through ducts to the atmosphere.
