We are following Government Guidance regarding the running of this event. As it happens, this date marks the opening up for all theatres across England.
We do have the following recommendations...
- We urge everyone to be vaccinated / double-vaccinated. This is not a demand but we can all see the benefits that the vaccine has had in reducing deaths and hospitalisations.
- Please can you all do lateral flow tests before coming to the theatre on the night. These are available from most chemists.
- We urge everyone to download the Government Covid-19 App and check into the Court Theatre when they arrive.
- We also ask that masks remain worn when you walk around the theatre building including the bar. It's at your discretion whether you wear a mask whilst watching the show.
- Please listen to all advice from the front of house staff and do the usual hand sanitising when you can and any other precautions that we have now grown accustomed to doing.
The outside doors of the auditorium will be left open during the show to ensure there is a constant airflow.
And the stage will be slightly reduced to increase loose chair space on the ground floor. We will be using the raked seating for the first time since March last year.
