We highly recommend advance booking as we will be unable to take cash on the door (card payments only) and we hope to avoid long queues at the box office. Please arrive 30 mins before show start time, as we will begin seating the audience 15 minutes before curtain up.
Please note that we will be observing strict social distancing measures and will expect audience members to abide by these. Our volunteer stewards will be on hand to ensure entry to the venue is safe and efficient. You will be asked to sit in a specific location, where practical, and must remain seated throughout the performance unless asked to stand or move. Face coverings are optional, but we would kindly request that each group (support-bubble/ household) sits as closely together as possible, leaving at least 1 metre between other individuals/support-bubbles/households.
