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-booked.



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. You will not be charged an admin fee for this, though if there is a difference in ticket price for the new performance then you may be charged the difference. If rescheduling is impossible, and where a digitaly streamed filmed version of the show is available, you will be offered access to this instead. If no filmed version of the show is available, you will be offered a Theatre credit note (minus a £2 admin fee) to use in the following six month period.

Please fill in the form below and we will endeavour to get back to you within 2 working days.

Covid Return/Exchange Application Form

Please note: Once we have received your form and before we process any ticket returns/exchanges, we will email you to provide evidence of a positive Lateral Flow result, or a positive PCR test result.

Workshop Precautions

Take Part sessions are now running at full capacity, and we will continue to operate with Covid safety measures such as antiviral cleaning procedures, ventilation of spaces (opening all possible windows and doors) and providing hand sanitising stations in all public areas and workshop spaces.  As mentioned above wearing a face covering is now a matter of personal choice for our visitors and no longer mandatory for anyone participating in a Take Part event however Take Part staff and Tutors / Workshop Facilitators will continue to wear face coverings when moving around the public areas of the building but may remove them when leading a session in their allocated workshop setting. We will no longer be operating a social distancing policy, but we encourage all participants to be respectful of others space and to ask before getting too close.
