From Friday December 10th, the use of face coverings in public venues such as theatres is once again mandatory (unless medically exempt). The Royalty Theatre would therefore ask that audience members wear a face covering, where possible, throughout their time within the theatre. We also advise continued use of hand sanitisation stations which are situated throughout the premesis, signing in using the NHS QR code, and ask that any instructions given by RT Staff are followed.

Please also note that, from the 15th of December, certain venues require an NHS Covid Pass or proof of negative lateral-flow test in order to gain entry. The Royalty Theatre is not one of these venues due to our maximum capacity and you will not be asked for proof of either of these in order to enter the premesis.

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 and are booked to see a performance, please do not attend the theatre. Please contact [email protected] and explain that you are unable to attend and we will be happy to help.

Thank you for your co-operation.
