Staying Safe

KEEPING US ALL SAFE

To ensure we are able to provide a comfortable and safe theatre going experience for everyone, there are a few things we need you to do and know ahead of your visit. Please take a moment to read the information below.

This information will continue to be updated in line with current Government guidance so we recommend checking back again before your performance.

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE

THE NHS COVID-19 APP

All members of your party over the age of 16 will need to use the NHS COVID-19 application to register for Track and Trace upon entry to the theatre.

If any member of your party is unable or unwilling to do so, you will need to complete the form in your pre-visit email ahead of your visit and present the verification email on arrival.

DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU FEEL UNWELL

If you are feeling unwell, do not travel on public transport or attend the theatre. You can let us know that you are unable to attend by emailing us at tickets@rsc.org.uk or call 01789 333935. You will be able to exchange your tickets to a future performance free of charge, subject to availability.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE

ON ARRIVAL

Ahead of your visit, we ask that you arrive in good time and help us to prevent crowding or queuing. Seating is unreserved and audiences will be seated on a first come first served basis.

All members of your party must enter the theatre together. Please only join the queue when your full party has arrived, as there will be no re-admittance to the theatre.

WEAR A FACE COVERING

You will be required to wear a face covering throughout your visit; both when moving around the theatre and during your performance.

If you are exempt due to medical reasons, please let us know by emailing tickets@rsc.org.uk

During your visit, our staff will be wearing clear face masks to make communication easier.

HAVE YOUR E-TICKET READY

Please have your ticket ready on your device or printed to speed up entry.

CLOAKROOM

We’re unable to have our cloakrooms open at the moment. Please only bring minimal belongings that can be stored beneath your seat. We are unable to store larger items.

DRINKS & REFRESHMENTS

Interval drinks and refreshments will be available to pre-order on the night.
