We are limiting our audience numbers for each event to comply with social distancing guidelines. If these rules are relaxed by government we will extend capacity as allowed.
Tickets are on sale as unallocated seating. When booking please choose the number of tickets for your party. In some instances you will also be able to choose if you would prefer to sit in the Stalls, Dress Circle or Upper Circle. All members of your party will be sat together.
In the week before your performance we will email you with your allocated seats, entrance time and entrance door to the theatre you should use in order to keep queues to a minimum. If you have any specific seating requirements (aisle etc) please email firstname.lastname@example.org after booking, quoting your booking number, with your requirements and we will do our best to accommodate you. However we cannot guarantee specific seats.
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 have booked more than 6 tickets for a show we will be in touch with individual ticket holders.
Your party will all be seated in the same area but we will need to apply social distancing guidelines so that a maximum of 6 people will be sat together.
