Before you visit
Check for symptoms
Before your visit, we recommend that you take an NHS lateral flow test. Please only attend the show if the result is negative.
If you or anyone in your party feels unwell they should not attend.
You should not attend if you:
- believe you may be infected with COVID-19;
- have experienced symptoms in the last 14 days;
- have been in close proximity to anyone who has experienced symptoms in the last 14 days;
- have arrived in England in the last 14 days and are not covered by the exemption rules relating to self-isolation; or
- have been instructed to self-isolate.
Leave more time
There may be additional checks and procedures to complete, so please leave plenty of time for your arrival. We’ll be maximising circulation space, reducing queues and opening auditorium doors as early as possible.
When you arrive
To reduce contact and paper usage, all future tickets should be booked in advance wherever possible and will be issued as e-tickets. Read more
A confirmation email will be sent when you book; and e-tickets will be sent closer to the time of the event. We’ll be scanning tickets on arrival, so please have them ready. If you don’t have a mobile phone, you will be able to print your e-ticket from home.
If we need to replace the tickets you have been sent previously, we’ll email a ticket with a barcode before you attend.
You’ll be able to check-in via QR code using the NHS COVID 19 app when you arrive.
During your visit
From 19 July 2021 the Government is recommending the continued wearing of face coverings in crowded indoor spaces. We are operating in a Covid-safe manner and following all guidelines, but would ask customers to remain considerate of fellow audience members.,
We’ll provide hand sanitiser stations throughout the venue. Please use them and/or wash your hands regularly using soap and warm water.
Keeping Your Distance
Out of courtesy to others, please continue to leave as much space as you can. Please also take note of directional signage and follow any one-way systems that may be in place.
Cleaning, ventilation & cloakrooms
We’ll be cleaning all areas more frequently and thoroughly, including wiping down surfaces throughout your visit. We’ll also be increasing fresh-air ventilation throughout the building wherever possible.
The cloakroom will be closed, so please keep your belongings to a minimum.
All purchases can be made using contactless or card payment methods – it’s quicker, reduces contact and is more secure. We’re no longer accepting cash payments, although you might need some cash for parking and merchandise for some shows.
At Seat Delivery
Refreshments will be available to pre-order including delivery to your seat. Order now
More team members will be in the venue to help guide you and to answer any questions you may have.
