Please be assured that the safety of our audiences is of the utmost importance to us. We are following the safety and hygiene measures set out by the government and industry bodies in their guidance for performing arts and events.

We are accredited with We’re Good To Go and the See it Safely schemes which set out guidance for venues to follow whilst open during the pandemic.

We are continuing to retain a series of precautionary measures and procedures so as to keep our audiences, performers, production crews and staff safe. All performances at the Amey Theatre are now being sold to full capacity seating, in line with government and UK Theatre guidance.

If you suspect you may have developed any of the symptoms of Covid-19, we ask that you do not attend the performance and follow government guidance. The main symptoms are:

  • a high temperature,
  • a new persistent cough,
  • a change in sense of taste or smell.

It is also no longer a leagal requirement when visiting the Theatre to wear a face covering, however we are strongly encouraging the continued wearing of masks during your visit in order to keep yourself and others safe.

Please note, that for Abingdon School events, there may be additional measures in place which will be communicated to you on the event page and prior to the event.

We recognise that some audience members may still feel uncomfortable attending a performance which is at full capacity. Where possible, we will work to have areas of socially distanced seating, but please note this will not always be possible.

As of 24 February 2022 we will be removing our own Test and Trace system the official NHS Covid-19 App QR code posters in line with Government guidance.

Abingdon Sports and Leisure will be reviewing these measures regularly and they are liable to change following updates to guidance. Please check back regularly for any updates. If you have any questions before your visit, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01235 849063 or [email protected]
