“Safety for everyone is paramount and the Congress Theatre offers a secure space which will be thoroughly cleaned after each performance; one-way systems and multiple entrances/exits allow safe access to this recently refurbished venue with large open plan communal areas. The theatre is operating a socially distanced seating plan at these events – which restricts the number of tickets sold so early booking is advised.”
