We are absolutely delighted to have restrictions lifted from 19 July. It will help to ensure our survival as a venue and as an industry. However, we recognise the need to proceed with caution so will be providing booking options to reflect this.
We will keep the QR codes for Track & Trace but will not require written details if you don’t have the app. Check in if you can, but it’s not mandatory. Face coverings and social distancing are no longer obligatory inside the building but we would ask our visitors to be respectful of others who wish to continue distancing and choose to wear a face covering. The government recommend that people wear face coverings in ‘crowded public spaces’.
For food and drink we will remain cashless, our team will wear masks while serving and the tables will continue to be placed around 1m apart. We’ll continue to offer table service during the day. We will, however, be offering bar service for pre-show and interval drinks.
The Visitor Information Centre and Box Office will also be cashless where possible and our staff and volunteers will be wearing face coverings.
In the Auditorium and other performance spaces, we will be offering an option of socially distanced seating at the back of the room, but all seats will be on sale from the middle row forwards. The airflow system in the Auditorium is constantly bringing in fresh air, so even if the people around you choose not to wear a face covering you will be breathing mainly fresh, outside air.
As always, our priority is the safety of our staff, volunteers and customers. If there is anything at all you are concerned about, please get in touch with us on 01328 710885 or email@example.com
Our new seating plan is pictured below, with the seats not for sale marked ‘H’
