UPDATED SEATING PLANS
Our booking system has been updated to allow you to sit next to your friends and family while ensuring a safe distance between customers and this will be done at the time tickets are purchased. Current social distancing measures mean that the number of seats available for each show is limited, and sold in ‘bubbles’ of either 1 person or 2 people with 1mt distancing in place. Although we currently accommodate singles and pairs, please contact Bridport Arts Centre for options of bubble sizes and we can be as flexible as is possible, up to current Government regulations.
If customers choose to leave the auditorium during a show, our reduced capacity and allocated seating system will mean passing other groups in the same row outside of their group should be minimal, and therefore extremely low risk.
When exiting the venue post-show, audience members will be directed to their nearest exit and released in small groups by our stewards.
Our already high cleaning standards has been enhanced by a new cleaning protocol that covers all areas of the building. We will be disinfecting all areas of the building at regular intervals throughout the day and evening to help keep you safe. Read our Hygiene and Cleaning factsheet.
The toilets at Bridport Arts Centre will be cleaned frequently and the frequency of checks will be increased. We will be working together with our customers to ensure that toilets are clean and safe at all times. Please be aware that until early 2021 we we not be building intervals into our events. Toilets will be accessible during events and social distancing measures for visits will be facilitated by the Duty Manager.
All customer toilets are stocked with hand soap. Stringent hand washing guidelines are also in place for all employees, to supplement our current personal hygiene policy.
Clean hands are safer hands. Please wash your hands and use our santisers. Hand sanitiser stations are provided throughout the building for customers and employees.
TRAINING & PPE
All our team have received training so that they are able to confidently work with our new protocols, to look after themselves and you, our customers. PPE is provided to employees where the risk assessment has deemed it necessary. Our team are on hand to offer assistance to customers.
