WELCOMING YOU BACK SAFELY
We are delighted to welcome you back and our priority is to ensure that the People's Theatre remains Covid-safe, and offers a warm welcome to everyone who uses our building.
Please see HERE for a full list of our COVID-safe measures.
We are proud to be a See It Safely accredited venue, in association with Society of London Theatres and UK Theatre.
THEATRE TOKENS GIFT CARDS:
Looking for the perfect gift for your theatre-obsessed partner, friends or family? You can’t do better than Theatre Tokens.
Theatre Tokens gift cards have no expiry date and can be used in more than 260 venues nationwide, including the People's!
You can also buy Theatre Tokens from us - just get in touch with the Box Office and we'll be happy to help.
Please note, Theatre Tokens cannot be redeemed online so please give the Box Office a ring if you wish to use a Theatre Token to buy tickets and we can process it for you.
All tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE (unless the performance is cancelled).
If at any point you feel unwell, you have any COVID-19 symptoms, or you are unable to attend for any other reason, just let us know and we will be happy to help arrange an alternative.
Tickets could be EXCHANGED for another day or a CREDIT NOTE can be issued for a future production (subject to availability).
If you book for a socially-distanced performance you agree to adhere to our social-distancing measures, including wearing a mask at all times when you are in the building. This includes during the performance (unless you are exempt). The full list of our COVID-safe measures can be read HERE
If Government guidance regarding COVID-19 measures changes between making your booking and the performance, you will be asked to follow the measures in place at the time when you attend.
CONCESSION PRICE applies to customers who are aged 65+ or under 18, students or unwaged.
Any additional offers or discounts will be listed on the individual play page.
If you have a CREDIT NOTE on your account from a cancelled production, its total will be deducted automatically at checkout.
You can select to have your tickets EMAILED (print off at home or show on your phone) or POSTED (for £1).
If you are making bookings for more than one performance/production at the same time and wish to have your tickets posted, there is no need to select 'postage' for each one and be charged £1 multiple times. Select postage for one of your bookings, and we will see the rest you've made and post the tickets together.
To reduce congestion and queueing in the foyer, tickets cannot currently be COLLECTED unless you are able to come in to pick them up before the night of the performance during Box Office opening hours. You must speak to the Box Office to arrange this.
Customers are reminded that PARKING around the theatre is limited and parking restrictions are enforced. Please leave yourself enough time to find a parking space and park responsibly with consideration for the local residents.

If you require step-free access for one of our socially-distanced performances, please contact the Box Office and we will be happy to help.
We have up to five spaces within our Main Auditorium assigned for audience members using a wheelchair. Advance booking is advised, and these spaces can be booked by telephoning the Box Office.
The Studio Theatre has flexible seating which changes from play to play. Audience members requiring a wheelchair space for a Studio Theatre production, please telephone the Box Office and this can be booked in. Advance booking is advised.
Audience members may wish to transfer into a theatre seat for the performance. We advise any audience members who wish to transfer that in our Main Auditorium only seats in Row A have step free access. For your safety, we ask that anyone using a wheelchair or mobility aid to access a theatre seat be able to exit the theatre independently in the event of an emergency, or attend with a guest to assist them.
If an audience member is unable to attend the theatre unaccompanied because of a disability, we offer one free ticket for a guest.
