Our new social distancing guidelines

19 July 2021


As museums, theatres and galleries across the city-region begin to re-open their doors and spring to life once again, as a sector, we want to reassure audiences and visitors alike that your health and wellbeing is our upmost priority.

No two venues will respond to the introduction of Stage 4 of the Government’s ‘Roadmap out of Lockdown’ in exactly the same way. Our venues are different sizes, shapes and operate in different ways appropriate to the needs of those individual businesses.

What is consistent, however, is the thrill and excitement our artists, production companies, staff and volunteers feel at the thought of being able to share great art and culture with you again face to face.

It has been a tough old time, but we’re back, side by side and cannot wait for you to join us.

From Monday 19 July, we strongly recommend that our visitors wear face coverings for the duration of their time with us, helping protect other visitors and our team. Other measures, such as our designated one-way system, social distancing and cashless payments, remain in place.
