Social Distancing

Capacity for performances is limited to comply with current social distancing guidelines. If these are relaxed we will increase capacity as allowed.

Rule of 6

In line with the governments’ guidance on ‘Rule of 6’ if your party is of 6 or less you can still all sit together as a family/social bubble.

If you are booking more than 6 tickets for a show, you will need to apply social distancing guidelines and book more than one ‘bubble’ so that a maximum of 6 people are sat together. Contact Box Office if you cannot find bubbles of 6 near to each other as we may be able to move seats, or recommend alternative performances.
