For each show we currently suggest arriving approx 30 minutes before the show to purchase food and drinks and be seated. There will be no intervals so as to reduce movement and cross contamination. Please leave promptly on show completion.

We are selling tables for up to 6 people and chair groups of 2, 3 and 4 to the event which are fixed price. Your table must only include people within your household/bubble.
Tickets will only be sold online as we will need contact information to comply with the venue?s legal requirement to supply track and trace details. We will only need one set of details per table booking.
