We are working hard to make visiting the theatre as safe as possible for everyone. We are following the up-to-date COVID-19 advice and guidelines and we will update this page should any of our guidance or UK Government regulations change.
WEAR A FACE COVERING
Face coverings are no longer required by law. However, the government suggests that people continue to wear face coverings in crowded, enclosed spaces where they encounter those they do not normally meet.
For this reason and to help protect our staff and other audience members, we encourage all our visitors to continue to wear a face covering while in the theatre, unless they are exempt or when they are eating or drinking.
We have enhanced our cleaning and the theatre will be cleaned throughout the day and thoroughly between every performance. Hand sanitiser stations will be positioned at the entrance and throughout the building.
FRESH AIR VENTILATION
We will keep fresh air circulating in the foyer and bar spaces, and inside the theatre our reconfigured air conditioning system pulls in 100% fresh air into the auditorium.
But we also need your help to keep the theatre safe for you, other audience members and our team. So please take the time to read our guide to visiting the Almeida:
Contactless Tickets: All our tickets are now available as e-tickets, which can be printed at home or shown on a digital device when you arrive.
Greater Flexibility: For extra reassurance we have extended our usual ticket exchange policy and we will be offering you the ability to exchange your tickets up to 24 hours before your performance.
Feeling Unwell? Please do not travel to the theatre if you or anyone in your group is infected with or are showing any symptoms of COVID-19.
Bring A Face Covering: We encourage all our visitors to continue to wear a face covering while in the theatre, unless they are exempt or when they are eating or drinking.
Travel: Consider your travel options in advance and try to cycle or walk to the theatre where possible. Please make sure you arrive at the theatre in good time.
E-tickets: Make sure you have downloaded your ticket to your digital device or have a copy printed.
Pack Light: Limit the number of unnecessary items you bring to the theatre. We don’t have a cloakroom or bag storage facilities and large bags can’t be taken into the auditorium.
Arrive Early: Please try to arrive at the theatre in good time as it may not be possible to admit latecomers.
Wear A Face Covering: Please put on your face covering before entering the building.
Sanitise Your Hands: We will have hand sanitiser available as you enter and in key locations across the building.
Ticket Check: Have your ticket ready to show a member of our Front of House team either on your digital device or have a copy printed.
Bar service: There will be a bar service available to purchase refreshments to take into the auditorium.
