    Essential carers

    We are pleased to offer one free essential carer ticket for customers who require a carer to accompany them for the performance.


    SOCIALLY DISTANCED PERFORMANCES

    Socially distanced performances are sold with a reduced capacity and with seating in groups, separated by one seat at the end of each group. The size and location of groups cannot be changed and all tickets within a seating group must therefore be purchased by the same ticket buyer.

    We want everyone to feel safe and confident about enjoying theatre again. These performances are labelled Socially Distanced, and dates for them can be found below and on individual show pages.
