from 19th July 2021
We are very excited to be able to start putting on plays under Step 4 of the Covid 19-roadmap.
Although many of the legal restrictions around how we manage cast, crew, backstage volunteers and audiences while at the Theatre have been removed, we are retaining certain of them in line with our "See It Safely" accreditation.
From Step 4, there is no longer a legal requirement for volunteers and customers to wear face coverings, although some prefer the continuation of use of masks in enclosed or crowded places.
This, however, is a matter for personal choice.
What We Are Doing Continue To Keep You Safe
To keep you safe, we will be cleaning the theatre before every performance and regularly disinfecting surfaces that are touched regularly.
We are providing hand sanitiser stations and we ask you to use these when you enter and exit the theatre.
Although our theatre is small, we will improve ventilation in the venue during performances by leaving windows and front and back doors open to create a through draft.
We need to be aware, however, that some of the doors are fire doors and, due to fire safety regulations, cannot be propped open.
IF YOU HAVE COVID-19 symptoms
Please do not come to the Theatre - you will be turned away. Please let us know not to expect you, so there is no hold up to the start of performances.
Please be aware that we have no parking spaces attached to the theatre. The roads surrounding the theatre allow on-street parking and it is important that you allow sufficient time to find a space.
If you are travelling by public transport, you are advised to check routes (some have changed recently) and times for later in the evening. The nearest bus stops are on Wimborne Road; services are Yellow Buses 4, 4a, 5 and 5a.
