Chipping Norton Theatre and Covid safety.



Indoor Events

Face Coverings

Face Coverings

Wearing a face covering is now a matter of personal choice for those who visit our building. To give confidence to fellow audience members, and to protect vulnerable members of our community, we ask our audiences to consider wearing face coverings whenever possible, and especially in crowded areas. 

If customers would like to be reseated in order to have more space around them, please notify a member of staff upon arrival and we will do our best to help. This is subject to availability and cannot be pre-booke

Our ushers and Duty Managers continue to wear face coverings, and we have perspex screens installed around the bar and box office. 



Air Handling

Our air handling system is programmed to pull in 100% fresh air and, with extraction fans as well, this ensures that there is a constant circulation of fresh air within the auditorium.



Sanitising Stations

Hand Sanitiser

Sanitising stations are located around the building.



Contactless Payment

Contactless Payment

Contactless payment is encouraged at both the Bar and Box Office.



Feeling unwell


Unable to attend a performance due to Covid

If you need to cancel your visit due to testing positive we will do our best to reseat you for a future performance. If the above is impossible, we will offer you a Box Office credit note (minus a small admin fee of £1 per ticket). 

Please note: Before we process any ticket refunds/exchanges we will email you to provide evidence of a positive Lateral Flow result, or a positive PCR test result.

Please fill in the form below and we will endeavour to get back to you within 2 working days. We are currently experiencing a high volume of return requests and with limited staff these requests are taking longer than usual. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

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.
