Performed to a socially distanced audience, the cast and theatre team will also be complying with all of the latest government guidance regarding Covid-19. Due to extreme reduced capacity, demand is expected to be very high- so book your seats today!



How many tickets can I book?

You can sit in groups of no more than six tickets. The limit is due to the government’s current ‘rule of six’ restrictions, where no group larger than six is allowed to gather together.


Can I choose where to sit?

Tickets are unreserved, and strictly limited due to Covid restrictions. Theatre staff will indicate where your party will be sitting. I agree the data provided on booking can be used to contact me for track and trace purposes


What measures do you have in place to make the venue safe when I visit?

There will be fewer people in the auditorium than normal to ensure the appropriate distancing between different groups of audience members. We’re requesting that customers leave their belongings at home, wherever possible. Please do not come to the theatre if you show any symptoms of Covid-19 according to government and NHS guidelines. Main symptoms being high temperature, new continuous cough, loss of change to smell or taste, or you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for covid-19 or shown any of the above symptoms in the past 14 days. The Big Top team will also be complying with all of the latest government guidance to ensure that the theatre is COVID-secure. The performance runs approx. 75 mins without an interval to avoid crowding.

Our measures will include:

• An increased usher to audience ratio, to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone

• Maintaining the highest possible cleaning standards within our building between performances.

• Making hand-sanitising gels available on all of our floors.

• We will ask all of our audiences to wear a mask, when moving around our building and when watching the show.

• We encourage the use of contactless payment systems available at our Box Office and bars.

• We are encouraging our customers to use e-tickets, to avoid queues for ticket collection


What are you doing to make sure that other customers are complying with your guidelines?

Our ushers will be on hand, so if you have any concerns, please speak to a member of our team. We will be reminding all of our customers about our policies around social distancing and mask-wearing.


Do I need to wear a mask when I am watching the show?

No, this is a seated  eating and drinking  event so whilst seated you are exempt.



If I get ill with Covid before I see the show, or if where I live is in lockdown, will I get a refund?

Our normal exchange and refund policy applies and we are not able to offer refunds.


What happens if a show is cancelled?

If a show is cancelled, you will receive a full refund for the value of your tickets, or a voucher for a future production.
