Feeling Safe at The Courtyard

Feeling safe at The Courtyard is so important, especially in current circumstances. With the current social distancing and safety guidelines being extended for four more weeks we want to assure you that The Courtyard is doing everything it can to make sure you feel safe during your visit.

When we reopened a month ago we put procedures in place that meant our customers could enjoy their long awaited return to the theatre. A big part of The Courtyard experience is the atmosphere. The buzz of excitement that fills the room as the lights dim and the show is about to begin. Being without that feeling for so long, it was really important to us that we maintained the magic while keeping you protected. Our first live show back happened on Saturday 5 June with A Night At The Musicals wow-ing everybody.

We’ve been asking some of our visitors how they’ve found returning to The Courtyard since we reopened in May. If you’re feeling uncertain about returning to theatre and cinema hopefully these can give you some reassurance…

I felt very safe with all the measures taken, it was absolutely wonderful to be back at The Courtyard. I can’t wait until two weeks’ time when I make another visit. The improvements made to The Courtyard are first class.

There was a sanitizing station. Everyone had masks, areas cordoned off for easy access, Café tables spaced out safely with table service. Seamless and easy to order extra food. Seats socially distanced in bubbles, entrance and exit one way system. Felt very safe. Booked to go again!

A warm welcoming from all staff members, knowing that if there was a problem it would be dealt with effectively.

It’s great hearing that you have enjoyed returning as much as us. And, if you’re still not sure remember we have detailed guidelines and this handy video so you know exactly what to expect when coming back after so long.
