Is The Place open?   

Our Theatre performance programme and our Classes and Courses programme have returned to full activity with in-person events - information here -. Our cafe bar is currently closed to the public during the day, but our bar for public performances is open. The box office is open for in-person or telephone bookings from Tuesday to Friday between midday and 5pm.  

In line with government guidelines face coverings are no longer a legal requirement in our theatre – we are following government safe behaviours advice, encouraging the wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, especially where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet.  We do not require people to present the NHS Covid Pass to attend. If you have a ticket for a performance or class you are no longer required to complete a visitor check-in.  In line with government and public health requirements we:    

  • actively turn away people with Covid   
  • provide adequate ventilation   
  • communicate and train – keeping all our staff and visitors up to date
