The government have announced that England will be moving to Plan B measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
As of Friday 10th December –in line with these measures – it is now a legal requirement to wear a face covering within public indoor venues. When you attend a performance at the Arena Theatre, please ensure you wear a face covering throughout the entirety of your visit: this includes whilst you are seated in the auditorium.
At present, it is not a legal requirement to have a vaccine passport to attend a performance at the Arena Theatre. However, we do encourage audience members who are not double vaccinated to have a lateral flow test twenty-four hours prior to their visit.
If you currently have tickets booked for an in-person performance that is also being livestreamed and wish to swap your tickets, please contact our Box Office on 01902 321 321 to do this.
The Arena Theatre runs on a staff base of six people, and if one of us gets COVID-19 we will have to shut for two weeks and cancel all performances within that time period.
We thank you for your understanding, and look forward to welcoming you to the venue soon.
(Proof of double vaccine can be obtained through the NHS app or by SMS or email following a negative test result. Tests are available at the Civic Centre in Wolverhampton or at home via the NHS website.)
The Arena will continue to offer Socially distanced seating for its professional programme to those who would feel more comfortable visiting in this manner.
(Socially distanced seating will be limited and provided on a first-come, first-served basis)
