Please find information here on all aspects of your visit. Do get in touch if you have any further enquiries, we hope to see you at the studios soon.
Your safety and security is of paramount importance to us.
The studios will be following the latest government COVID-19 Secure safety guidelines for audiences.
If you or someone in your party is feeling unwell or have any symptoms, please do NOT come to the Studios. Please call the Box Office on 02380 711833 prior to your performance to discuss your tickets.
The shows with socially distanced seating will be presented in exactly the same way as normal – with a full cast, set and costumes. The quality of the performance will not be compromised in any way.

How will we exit the building/event at the end of the performance?
- An usher will indicate when you are able to leave and where to exit the building which may not be the same way you entered. We ask audiences to maintain social distancing when leaving the performance, and please take any rubbish with you, or leave it in the bins provided.
How is air circulated around the theatre?
- Our air handling units are fed by filtered fresh air. Used air is extracted to the outside and is not recirculated. Filters are changed as part of regular, routine maintenance and we have full control over the air system throughout the theatre via our building management system.
What if I have specific access needs?
Can I get a refund if I have symptoms or have been asked to self-isolate?
- No one with symptoms or who has been asked to self-isolate should attend the venue. With that in mind, we have updated our terms and conditions so that you now have up to 24 hrs before a performance to return or exchange your tickets for these reasons.
If the show is cancelled will I get a full refund?
- If we are required by any COVID-19 government guidance or restrictions to cancel a performance, tickets may be exchanged or refunded.
Can I make a group or school booking?
- In line with current government guidance, the maximum number of tickets in one group will be 6.
