What we are doing to keep you safe
Socially distanced seating
We have reduced the number of seats that are available to book and have blocked off seats which cannot be used. Only around 25% of the seats in the theatre will be available, to ensure that audience members have enough space to maintain a suitable social distance whilst enjoying a performance.
Our seating plan has been adapted to offer different sized social bubbles. When booking tickets, please select all seats within that bubble and up to a maximum of six tickets. If we do not have the correct sized social bubble available for a performance, please contact the Box Office as we may be able to make other arrangements. You should only attend in groups of six or less. You may attend in a larger group if you are from just one or two households.
We are constantly monitoring the situation and will revise the booking process when it is safe to do so.
We have placed signage around the building to help you navigate the space whilst maintaining a safe social distance.
You will note there are one-way and queuing systems in place to help avoid a build-up of people in “busy” areas. Please follow the signage and instructions given by theatre staff.
Please look out for other signage throughout the building that will help you reach your final destination in the easiest and safest way.
The theatre continues to be professionally cleaned on a very regular basis and all areas of the building are receiving additional cleaning. Contact surfaces such as door handles, toilets, tables and chairs are cleaned thoroughly throughout the day using antiviral cleaning products.
Hand sanitation stations
We have installed hand sanitation stations around the building. Please use them as well as washing your hands thoroughly and regularly. Keeping your hands clean and avoiding touching your face (particularly mouth, nose and eyes) are two of the best defences against the coronavirus.
Increased Air Ventilation
The theatres ventilation system has been serviced by an engineer, replacing the filters and ensuring it can operate to its maximum capacity. It will run consistently whilst the building is in use. The ventilation system works by continually drawing fresh air in, through the building and immediately expelling the air. This will result in no re-circulation of air throughout the building and theatre space. As this system will be running at full power whilst the building is in use, it may feel slightly colder when you are visiting. We would therefore recommend dressing appropriately for slightly colder temperatures.
We hope these new safety measures give you the confidence and reassurance to visit us again soon to enjoy some unmissable live theatre. To discuss any concerns, please contact the Box Office.
Whilst every effort is being made to protect the safety and well-being of our audiences, we ask that all visitors thoroughly familiarise themselves with the new rules and personal responsibilities before a visit.
Thank you for your continued support.
We can't wait to welcome you back to Hull Truck Theatre!
