Where possible we encourage people to use the NHS Covid Pass which we will be able to scan on the day. This will not tell us anything other than your name and whether or not you meet one or more of the following criteria. It will not tell us which of the criteria you meet.

Arriving at the Theatre and Intervals
Doors open 30 minutes before the show starts – please arrive in good time.
Before the show the queue to enter the theatre will be outside.
During the interval we may need to extend the bar queue outside if the area becomes too congested or to help with social distancing – please bear this in mind, particularly if it is raining.
Audience members are asked to be considerate of others and maintain social distancing when queuing at the door, bar or toilets. If one of our volunteers asks you to move please follow their guidance.
We ask audience members to leave the bar area if they are not queuing for the bar or toilets.
Card Payments Only
In order to minimise contact with our volunteers, we will only be accepting card payments on the door and at the bar. Please ensure that you have a credit or debit card with you.
Before the show and during intervals we will be opening all external doors to provide ventilation. Please be aware that this could make the auditorium colder than usual.
