Covid 19 Information
There are no longer mandatory Covid restrictions in place but we want to make sure that everyone feels confident to return to the Theatre Shop this autumn, so we’re still going to be changing some of our systems
This season we are trialling booking tickets using a seating plan, and shows will initially go on sale with social distancing applied, automatically leaving spaces between booking groups. We may increase capacity and relax measures once we are happy that it’s safe to do so, however we will guarantee a limited number of socially distanced performances. These performances will be labelled Guaranteed Socially Distanced.
The bar is going to be open again, but with contactless payment preferred, so we will once again be opening the doors half an hour before performances to allow plenty of time to get yourself a drink!
We’ll be prioritising ventilation and leaving the windows on the stairs/in the bar open to maximise airflow so don’t forget an extra layer if it’s chilly. We do ask that you continue to wear face coverings when moving around the building , and also strongly recommend their use throughout performances.
Our cleaning routine will continue with high contact areas (such as seat backs, stair handrail, toilet area) cleaned before and after performances. We’ll ask our staff and volunteers to wear appropriate face coverings and there will be hand sanitiser points at the front door and at the top and bottom of the stairs.
