What's On

Welcoming you back safely

We want everyone to feel safe when coming back to our theatre.  It’s very difficult in some areas within the theatre to be socially distanced.  We want to welcome patrons back and to take away some of the worry and anxiety from your visit. Here is some guidance to help:

  • The theatre will be open from 6.30pm each night of the play, so you have time to get settled into your seat prior to the 7.15pm start.

  • When entering the theatre, please use the hand sanitizers available.

  • We recommend wearing face masks when walking around the theatre (unless you have an exemption).

  • Socially distance/avoid close contact/crowding where possible.

  • We will ventilate rooms where possible.

  • If you have symptoms including a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a change in your sense of taste or smell, you should not come to the theatre.

    Do not come into the theatre if you are isolating or awaiting the results of a PCR test.

    If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and you were at the theatre up to 48 hours before, please contact the Box Office:

    e-mail - boxoffice@progressiveplayersgateshead.co.uk

    telephone - 0191 478 1499

    Our box office team and front of house stewards will be wearing visors to ensure safety and ease with communication.  We will ensure all our fire doors are open at the end of the performance to help with exiting the theatre.

    This is our current guidance but it may be updated and amended subject to local and Government information.
