Auditorium seating

Your safety is important to us and we've been working hard to make sure that our Theatre is safe for everyone. This important guide outlines all the information you will need to make your visit both safe and enjoyable. We also reserve the right to update this guide in line with changes to Government guidelines, advice or regulations.

We are delighted to be recognised as one of the official SEE IT SAFELY venues, accredited by the Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre. The logo certifies that theatres are complying with the latest Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, to ensure the safety of both staff and audiences.

We have also been accredited with the We're Good to Go industry standard from VisitEngland. The logo provides a 'ring of confidence' for businesses, attractions and destinations as well as reassurance to visitors that clear processes are in place and that the business is good to go.
