Mandatory face coverings: Howard Assembly Room

We have taken the decision that face coverings must now be worn at all times within the Howard Assembly Room.

In view of the new government advice announced over the weekend, we have considered the impact on our staff, artists and audiences and introduced mandatory face coverings. The only exceptions to this are for those who are exempt from wearing face coverings, those under 11 years old, and when eating or drinking during your visit. If you are not exempt, then refusal to comply with this new arrangement will mean you will not be permitted access. We will provide masks for those who do not have them.

These new arrangements take effect from Saturday 4 December and will remain in place in line with government review periods, currently set at three weeks from now.

We will refund or credit tickets if bookers are unable to comply with this requirement. Please contact our Box Office to arrange this.

If you are exempt from wearing a face covering please advise a member of the team upon arrival. You may be asked to wear a discreet badge to notify other members of the team that you are exempt.

We have taken this step for a number of reasons and having surveyed our audiences, believe this will not only ensure we are creating the safest possible environment for our audiences and staff, but that it will encourage more people to feel confident to return to live events. Everyone is welcome: we want to provide as comfortable and safe a visit as possible.

Thank you for your continued support at this time.
