If you have any access requirements, please contact us on 020 7701 0100 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Our theatre space is on the ground floor and is wheelchair accessible but our bar is upstairs and unfortunately is not.
Our bar and our box office open 45 minutes before each show starts.
Please do not be late as we may be unable to admit latecomers.
Covid-safety: We are operating at reduced capacity so there can be more space between audience members and we have recently installed a new ventilation system. It is now necessary by law to wear a mask in the theatre, unless you are exempt. We clean down and disinfect high touch points regularly and hand sanitiser/hand washing facilities are available as soon as you arrive at the theatre.
