Safety Information

The safety of our visitors, staff and students is our priority. Here's what we're doing to help keep everyone safe, and what you can do to help.



In line with government guidelines, all staff and visitors must wear a face covering when inside our buildings. Read our list of exemptions. Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. If no tissue is available, use your elbow.


Although it is no longer mandatory, we ask that visitors give people space where it is sensible or requested.


We will refund tickets to anyone that tests positive or is displaying symptoms of Covid-19 as long as we’re notified at least two hours prior to an event start time.


Hand sanitiser is available at regular intervals throughout our venues. We recommend you make use of these upon arriving and leaving our venue.


The frequency of our cleaning throughout our venues has been increased, including toilets and other facilities.


We are able to accept both contactless and cash payments in our venues, though contactless payments are preferred.
