Whitby Pavilion Update

Venue is now Open!

Whitby Pavilion has now reopened!

If you are attending a show we ask you to please follow our saftey protocols below.

Making Your Visit To Whitby Pavilion as Safe As Possible.

We are delighted to welcome you back to Whitby Pavilion.

We are safely managing your visit to The Pavilion in line with the latest Government guidance.

In order to ensure safety, we kindly ask you to adhere to the following measures to keep everybody safe:

If you have any COVID symptoms or have been asked to self-isolate please do not come to the theatre. A full refund will be given if you provide evidence from NHS Test and Trace that you have to self-isolate.

Mask-wearing is optional but welcomed. The Pavilion's staff will continue to wear masks and we will be maintaining air-flow within The building.

We kindly ask you to provide/show upon entry:

Proof of full vaccination – both doses received (with the second at least 14 days prior to the show you are attending)
Proof of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test taken prior to travel on the day of arrival at the venue.

Please Sanitise your hands upon entry and on a regular basis at the sanitiser stations throughout the venue.

Please arrive as early as possible.

Please be vigilant and be respectful of others when moving around and exiting the venue.

Please be assured that we will continue to manage our shows and the venue as safely as possible and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Will I need to wear a face covering?

In line with government guidance with regards to face covering indoors, we strongly recommend that you continue to wear face coverings out of respect for fellow audience members and our companies when coming into our theatres and especially when moving around the theatre. If you are exempt from wearing a face covering it would help our front of house staff and fellow audience members.

What should I bring?

Please keep your belongings to a minimum and with you at all times. This will assist with bag checks. Bags should be no bigger than an A4 piece of paper.

What else are you doing to ensure safety?

We will be offering enhanced cleaning and regularly disinfecting. Some routes may have changed in order to minimise your contact with others, so our helpful staff will guide you.

Please use the hand sanitiser stations when you enter and exit the venue.

Following the performance, Stage Door activities such as photographs with the performers or autograph signing may be restricted.

What happens if I have Covid and can’t use my ticket?

We will be ensuring that you have maximum flexibility by allowing tickets to be exchanged up to 24 hours prior to the performance – so if someone in your party is confirmed as Covid positive or has symptoms, there is no need to worry.

We may allow you to exchange tickets even closer to the performance time – please make sure to check with the box office.

Thank you for playing your part and we look forward to seeing you at the theatre again soon.

Will I be able to buy interval refreshments?

Yes but please check if it is possible to pre-order your interval drinks to minimise contact with others. We request you to pay by contactless where possible, and there may be one way systems in place.

What are the social distancing rules?

As of 19 July, theatres can be open at full capacity so you may be sitting next to other people. Some of our performances will remain with socially distanced seating, please check at the box office.

Theatres will continue to ask you to maintain a safe social distance where possible when queuing to take your seats and moving around the theatre. You may need to pass someone to take your seat in a row – to mitigate risk we recommend wearing your face covering while moving around the theatre.
