Victoria Theatre COVID Vaccination and Negative Test Policy
The Council and Theatre staff are excited to head into a busy autumn season at the Victoria Theatre and finally host full scale events after being closed for over 18 months. We know that many of our customers are eager to return to live entertainment and would like life to go back to ‘normal’. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic means that there is a need to continue to protect ourselves, our audiences, and our community, and make some difficult decisions that will help us to prevent the spread of COVID.
For a safe, considerate, and enjoyable experience for everyone the Council has decided to implement the following from the first full size, main house event on Thursday 26 August 21.
We are asking all ticket holders to provide ONE of the following:
- Proof of double vaccination via the NHS App using the COVID Passport OR
- Proof of a negative lateral flow test, logged within 24 hours of the event OR
- Proof of a negative PCR test, logged within 24 hours of the event
You can provide these via the NHS App, which can be used to log all lateral flow and PCR test results. It also records vaccinations and can be used as proof of vaccination. You can also request a paper copy of your Covid Passport using the NHS App.
Please note: The NHS App is different from the NHS Test and Trace App.
We appreciate that not everyone is able to use apps and will therefore also accept the following as proof:
- Text / email confirmations of negative test results logged with the NHS OR
- A timestamped photograph of you with your negative lateral flow test OR
- A COVID vaccination card showing double vaccination and matching photo identification
To further protect ourselves and each other, we are continuing with the programme of enhanced cleaning and continuing to encourage visitors and staff to wear masks while moving around the venue.
As we are all aware, theatres and live entertainment venues have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic, we were some of the last places to open and are likely to be the first places to close should the need arise for a return of restrictions.
We really want to make sure that we can remain open, to bring back the joy of live entertainment and shared experiences to all, so that we can all feel as ‘normal’ as possible under the circumstances.
We greatly appreciate your support, kindness, and cooperation during this time as we continue to protect ourselves and each other.
If you have any queries about your booking, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to your enquiry as soon as possible. We are currently operating on reduced hours in the box office so recommend that you email instead of calling or attending the box office.
Please refer to our FAQs for more information.
The door times for all events are an hour before the show is due to start and we will be checking everyone as they come in. Please arrive as early as possible, as there may be queues.
* Ticket prices include a Theatre Support Fee when booking via our Box Office and online. No other charges are applied.
