Frequently asked questions about your visit

Will there be enhanced cleaning taking place?

Yes, enhanced cleaning will take place focusing on high frequency touch-points such as hand rails, door handles and barriers.

Will there be hand sanitising stations at the venue?

You will be asked to sanitise your hands on arrival. There are hand sanitiser stations and hand washing facilities throughout the venue.

Will the toilet facilities be open?

Toilets remain open with enhanced cleaning regimes. Some sinks and urinals may be taken out of use to maintain social distancing. A toilet queue management system will be in place for your safety and comfort.

Will the cloakroom be open?

No - please be aware there is no bag or coat storage available. Small bags and items must be carried with you, so please try to bring a minimum amount of baggage to the venue.  

Is there a designated route around the venue?

When moving around the venue, please follow the clearly marked routes and signs to avoid congestion and maintain safe distances. In a limited number of areas in the auditorium you may have to briefly pass other audience members along the row in order to access your seats. Please ensure that your face covering remains on and that you face forwards as you move along your row. Please queue responsibly where indicated.

What happens when the show finishes?

To assist with social distancing, we will be directing customers to leave row by row and you may be asked to wait before leaving your seat. When exiting the venue please follow staff direction and marked routes and signs to avoid congestion and maintain safe distances. 

Frequently asked questions about a rescheduled show

When will I find out if an event is postponed, rescheduled or cancelled, and how will that affect me if I have tickets?

Bradford Theatres will send an email to customers affected. If you don’t have an email address listed on your account a member of the Box Office team will call customers, if a contact number has been provided. 

I’ve seen on social media that an event I have tickets for has been rescheduled. Will my tickets be valid for the new date or will I be offered a refund?

You should have been contacted via email with these details. You can log on to your online account at any time to check your email and mailing preferences. Please do this and update if needed to ensure you receive the latest email communications. We are currently working to re-issue Print at Home tickets for rescheduled shows. This means if you selected PAH tickets when booking you will receive new tickets in due course. If you received printed tickets from Bradford Theatres either in person or in the post these will still be valid for the rescheduled date. 

How will my refund be processed?

Refunds for shows cancelled due to the coronavirus are processed automatically by our Box Office team back to the card you originally paid with.

Can I get a refund or exchange if I no longer wish to come to a performance I have booked for?

We’re happy to process a refund should you need one.  Please consider if you are able to swap your booking for another show, take a credit on your account or make a donation to Bradford Theatres instead of a refund.

I was really looking forward to coming to a show that has been cancelled. Will it be rescheduled?

Our team is working with producers to confirm the situation and discussing if their cancelled tours will be rescheduled to a later date. Please keep checking our website and social media channels for the latest information.

I’m concerned about the future of Bradford Theatres’ venues in these unprecedented circumstances. What can I do to help?

These are hugely uncertain and difficult times for the theatre industry across the whole of the UK. Please consider if you are able to swap your booking for another show, take a credit on your account or make a donation to the theatre instead of a refund. You can also support Bradford Theatres and invest in the future of local live performance by purchasing a Friends Membership or gift vouchers.
