How we are keeping you safe

SSC promises to:

  • • Adhere to current government guidance on covid safety, and continually assess best practice for safety of staff, performers, and audience members. 
  • • Ensure that enhanced cleaning measures are regularly taking place including frequent touch points, toilet facilities and the Netherbow Theatre on a regular basis throughout the day.
  • • Ensure the provision of hand sanitizer and handwashing stations within the building for staff and customers.
  • • Display appropriate covid safety guidelines signs in the building.

In return, we ask that audiences:

  • • Sanitize hands on arrival to the building, and wash hands frequently.
  • • Wear face coverings unless exempt. This is no longer a mandatory requirement, but we encourage our visitors to wear one if possible.
  • • Arrive in adequate time ahead of performance. Doors will open 15 minutes ahead of start time to give us enough time to seat customers safely.

  • • Appropriate PPE will be worn by First Aiders when carrying out any tasks that involve direct contact.
