Keeping us all safe

See It Safely

To ensure we are able to provide a comfortable and safe theatregoing experience for everyone, there are a few things we need you to do and know ahead of your visit. Please take a moment to read the information below.

This information will continue to be updated in line with current Government guidance so we recommend checking back again before your performance.

Before You Arrive

The NHS COVID-19 App

All members of your party over the age of 16 will need to use the NHS COVID-19 application to register for Track and Trace upon entry to the theatre.

If any member of your party is unable or unwilling to do so, you will need to complete the form in your pre-visit email ahead of your visit and present the verification email on arrival.

Do not attend if you feel unwell

If you are feeling unwell, do not travel on public transport or attend the theatre. You can let us know that you are unable to attend by emailing using the button below.

You will be able to exchange your tickets to a future performance free of charge, subject to availability.

When You Arrive

On Arrival

Ahead of your visit, you will receive recommended arrival times. Please take note of these. They help us to prevent crowding or queuing.

All members of your party must enter the theatre together. Please only join the queue when your full party has arrived, as there will be no re-admittance to the theatre.

Wear A Face Covering

You will be required to wear a face covering throughout your visit; both when moving around the theatre and during your performance.

If you are exempt due to medical reasons, please let us know by clicking here.

Have your e-ticket ready

We’ll have contact free ticket scanning in place upon entry to the theatre. Please have your ticket ready to be scanned to speed up entry.


We’re unable to have our cloakrooms open at the moment. Please only bring minimal belongings that can be stored beneath your seat.

If you require storage of larger items, we have a great partnership with Stasher.


Official merchandise for Les Misérables – The Staged Concert will be available exclusively from the Sondheim Theatre. To purchase, simply visit our website from 72 hours before the show begins. Your chosen products will be available for collection at the bar on your level of the theatre.

Look out for this information in your pre-visit email.

Drinks & Refreshments

Drinks and refreshments will be available to pre-order from 72 hours before the show begins via our website, and will be ready and waiting for you from the bar on your level of the theatre.

Look out for this information in your pre-visit email.

Stage Door

Please note that in line with the current Government guidance around COVID-19 and the UK threat level, there will be no Stage Door signing of merchandise and programmes. Please do not send any items directly to the theatre for signing as these will be disposed of.
