We are staging this event in line with guidance following the Government’s relaxation of COVID regulations regarding social distancing, which is no longer mandatory. To make this event as safe and comfortable as possible we continue to operate on a reduced capacity, however, limited socially distanced areas will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. 

To keep your fellow audience members, artists and our team as safe as possible, we expect all our audience and team members to wear face coverings (except those medically exempt). We also encourage everyone to take a lateral flow test before travelling; this too is for everyone’s benefit, because together we can all help each other enjoy a safe and comfortable visit.

NHS Test & Trace QR Codes will also be in place at entrances to our venues, and all are encouraged to check-in with their smartphone as they arrive at the venue for the first time.
