As we reopen the Royal Shakespeare Theatre this autumn, here's what you need to know about how we're keeping you safe during your visit.
We clean and sanitise all areas of our buildings and facilities thoroughly before, during and after every performance or event. The auditorium seating is fogged twice weekly with disinfectant spray.
Whilst our fresh air handling system will maintain an ambient temperature inside the theatre, we will keep the foyers and other front of house areas naturally well ventilated so they may feel much colder than usual.
Socially distanced performances
On seven Tuesday evenings, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre will run at reduced capacity, with audiences seated with an empty row in front of and behind them and with one empty seat between parties to ensure 1m+ social distancing. We will ask you to wear a mask, unless exempt, throughout your visit.
The socially distanced performances take place on the following Tuesdays at 7.15pm:
- 2, 9, 16 and 23 November
- 7, 21 and 28 December
Tickets are only bookable by phone from the Box Office, on 01789 331111.
We will do all that we can to ensure that you are safe and that your enjoyment of the experience is not interrupted. In the event of an emergency, we will ensure we avoid clustering at exits and outside our buildings.
