Keeping You Safe

We’re delighted to be back open at full capacity for live performances.

Thank you for your continued support. With our upcoming season, there’s plenty to look forward to!

Guidelines for attending events: 

We have been granted the use of Society Of London Theatre & UK Theatre’s ‘See It Safely’ mark. The mark certifies that we are complying with the latest Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, to ensure the safety of our staff and audiences.

Covid-19 prevention measures in place:

Will I need to wear a face covering?

Current government guidance is to consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces.  You may choose to wear a face covering whilst in The McMillan Theatre if you wish to do so.

How will my ticket work?

The majority of tickets will be e-ticket or print-at-home ticket. This will allow you to enter our venue more easily, minimise the amount of time you may have to queue, and reduce contact with the front of house team.

Will I still need to provide contact details for Test and Trace purposes?

There is now no legal requirement to provide contact details for Test and Trace purposes.

What should I bring with me?

Please keep all belongings to a minimum and with you at all times.

What are the social distancing rules?

We are open at full capacity and so you may well be sitting next to other people.

Where possible you should try to maintain a safe social distance when moving around the theatre. To mitigate risk you may choose to wear a face covering while moving around the theatre.

What other safety measures are in place?

To help keep you safe the theatre will be thoroughly cleaned throughout the day, including before and after all performances. This will include the cleaning of public areas including toilets, floors, doors and furniture.

Our Fresh Air Handling system continually extracts the air from the auditorium and replaces it with fresh air.

Front of House staff and cleaners will follow all safety guidelines.

We have also installed kick-pads on toilet doors reducing your need to touch them.

Hand sanitising stations are available for your use.
