We are opening our doors and welcoming you back safely

As we reopen this Autumn we have a number of Covid safety measures in place to make you feel safe and comfortable coming back through our doors. Coming in and out of the theatre may take slightly longer.  Please be patient and courteous with our volunteers.

Entrance will be through the main front doors, a one way system is in place. When leaving the building you will be directed to a fire exit door.

The NHS Track and Trace QR code will be in the foyer for people to scan using their smart phones, hand sanitiser will also be available.

In line with government guidance with regards to face covering indoors,  when moving around the theatre we would encourage you to wear a mask unless you are exempt. These can be removed once seated in the auditorium.

As of 19 July, theatres could open to no social distancing. We would however ask you to maintain a safe social distance where possible when moving around the theatre. 

Please do not attend if you are experiencing Covid 19 symptoms or you believe you have been infected.

Thank you for playing your part and we look forward to seeing you at the theatre again soon
