For your safety, we are a COVID-19 secure building.
Government Guidance currently states:
Section 4.5 Entertainment updated on 23rd July
• Venues should not permit indoor performances, including drama, comedy and music, to take place in front of a live audience. However, indoor performances to a live audience are expected to resume after 1st August, subject to the successful completion of pilots, and provided transmission levels remain around or below current levels. This is important to mitigate the risks of droplets and aerosol transmission - from either the performer(s) or their audience.
• All venues should ensure that steps are taken to avoid people needing to unduly raise their voices to each other. This includes, but is not limited to, refraining from playing music or broadcasts that may encourage shouting, including if played at a volume that makes normal conversation difficult. This is because of the potential for increased risk of transmission, particularly from aerosol transmission. We will develop further guidance, based on scientific evidence, to enable these activities as soon as possible. You should take similar steps to prevent other close contact activities, such as communal dancing.
• There may be an additional risk of infection in environments where you or others are singing, chanting, shouting or conversing loudly. This applies even if others are at a distance to you. Venue managers should ensure sing-alongs or similar activities are avoided. You should also avoid environments that require you to raise your voice to communicate with anyone outside your household.
• If attending a place or event that is following COVID-19 Secure guidelines, you should take care to limit your interactions with anyone outside of your group and you should continue to maintain social distancing from those that you do not live with. It is critical that you follow these guidelines to keep both yourself and others safe.
• It remains the case that you should not socialise indoors in groups of more than two households (anyone in your support bubble counts as one household) – this includes when dining out or going to the pub
