Welcome back to Chippy Theatre.

We've missed you! 


Indoor Events for Autumn/Winter

It is not currently anticipated that social distancing will be in operation for these performances (except Socially Distanced performances of Rapunzel). 


Face Coverings

Following the recent UK Government advice regarding face coverings and in response to an increase requests from our audience and staff, face coverings will become a condition of entry to our building from Monday 6th December for everyone aged 12 and over, unless medically exempt. Please inform the staff on your arrival if you have a medical exemption from wearing a face covering.  This policy also includes wearing a face covering during the performance, unless actively eating or drinking.


Sanitising Stations


Sanitizing stations located in every area of the building.




Enhanced anti-viral cleaning


Enhanced anti-viral cleaning procedures. We have also updated our air handling units so that they supply fresh air in to the auditorium and extract old air.



Contactless Payment


Contactless payment encouraged at the bar and box office




Feeling unwell


If you are feeling unwell, or have a fever, please don't attend. If you need to cancel your visit due to self-quarantine, we will do our best to reseat you for a future performance, or offer you a digitally streamed version of the event (where available). If the above is impossible, we will offer you a box office credit note (minus a small admin fee of £1 per ticket).

Workshop Precautions

All Take Part sessions will be resuming at full capacity for the Autumn 2021 Term. We will continue to operate Covid safety measures, including antiviral cleaning procedures, providing hand sanitising stations and taking participants' temperature upon entry. Face masks should be worn when moving around the building, but may be removed when participating in a session. Theatre staff and workshop practitioners will wear face masks at all times. We will not be operating a social distancing policy, but encourage all participants to be respectful of others and to ask before getting too close.
