Safety for
all attendees

We know how essential it is to maintain social distancing right now so we’ve made sure there will be lots of space for all.

Cars will be parked safely 2 metre distance from each other and attendees will be guided to their own private viewing area, again with a 2 metre area around them, so you can be rest assured that you will enjoy the experience of the performance with a safe distance from other guests around you.

Entry will be checked via license plate to ensure no interaction is needed between venue staff and customers. All food orders will be made on a collection or delivery basis to further reduce interaction with staff.

Health &

We will have hand sanitiser stations outside each toilet location, plus additional hand sanitisers for all members of staff.

All staff will have training in advance about the safety procedures for maintaining hygiene including hand washing, wearing gloves when serving and delivering food. Staff and support stewards will be required to wear masks at all times.

Our managers will be making sure that our teams are delivering the highest quality service at all times. Each row of platforms will have a dedicated section of toilets to limit groups. Toilet queues will operate with a 2m distance.

We take safety first and will be providing a comfortable and clean experience for all that attend the events. We will have also have a trained medical team on site if any assistance is required by customers.

All venue staff will have full training in advance regarding hygiene procedures.
