Coronavirus Measures at the ADC Theatre

This page outlines the measures that we plan to have in place in Autumn to prevent the spread of respiratory diseases like coronavirus. These are the main points in summary:

  • You should wear a face covering throughout the duration of your visit, unless you are exempt.
  • For Test and Trace purposes, we recommend that contact details of all audience members above the age of 16 are given, either by scanning the NHS Test and Trace QR code, or by giving details manually when going to see the show.
  • Our venue will be operating under increased ventilation measures, with the auditorium being mechanically ventilated, and other areas like the Bar being naturally ventilated. 
  • Our venue will be operating under increased hygiene measures to help prevent the spread of disease.
  • Please note that there is no distancing between audience members inside our auditorium.

Information about social distancing at the Corpus Playroom can be found here.

Information about the re-opening of the ADC Bar can be found here.

Out of consideration for your fellow audience members and our staff, and to help keep our venue safe, you should wear a face covering at all times while inside the ADC Theatre unless you are medically exempt, or temporarily removing it to eat or drink inside the Bar or Auditorium. This includes wearing a face covering when going up to the bar counter to order drinks, or when interacting with any of our staff or stewards throughout the venue. Whilst we are strongly encouraging our guests to wear masks at all times, this will ultimately be at the discretion of individual customers as per national guidelines. You are encouraged to bring your own face covering; however, you can also purchase one of our reusable ADC branded face masks online or at the Box Office for only £6.

When you arrive at the Theatre, we recommend that you give your contact details to be passed on to NHS Test and Trace if necessary. This can be done either by scanning the NHS app QR code when entering the Theatre, or by giving your details to our Box Office. Your details will not be passed on to anyone else and will be destroyed after 21 days from the performance.

Our venue will be operating under increased ventilation and hygiene measures to help prevent the spread of disease.

Please note that there is no distancing between audience members inside our auditorium, with mitigations instead in place through increased ventilation and hygiene measures.

If you have any questions related to this, please do not hesitate to contact the Theatre Manager, Jamie, at manager@adctheatre.com
