For the time being, visiting our venue for either a session or a show, will be very different.

Here’s what you need to know before booking tickets to one of our events:

  • All events must be booked in advance.  No walk-ups will be permitted.

  • Social distance seating is in place until further notice.In the auditorium, seats will be blocked out either side of you, please only sit in your allocated seat numbers.

  • Please only make one booking for your party.Booking separately will mean you are not seated together.

  • All wheelchair bookings must email until further notice

  • The venue will only open the doors at the ‘doors open’ time stated on your tickets.This will mean if you arrive early, you may have to wait outside.

  • There is no waiting in the foyer - upon entering the building, you must go straight to your seats.

  • The bar, when operating, will have a reduced menu.

  • You must not bring any food or drinks into the venue.

  • You are advised to wear a face mask when entering and moving about the building - once seated this can be removed.

  • Social distancing measures and a one-way system will operate around the venue, please follow these whenever possible.

  • You book tickets knowing that things can change last minute.If we are forced into lockdown, we may have to postpone or cancel events.In this event, you will be entitled to a refund.

  • Please remember that many of our front of house and bar team are volunteers.
