Your Safety

When you’re ready to return to us, we’re committed to keeping you safe.

Refunds & Exchange

We know planning ahead feels tricky just now, so we’ve amended our terms and conditions to include no quibble refunds or exchanges if you can’t attend a performance due to Covid symptoms or cancellation on our part.


Some of our visitors may still be vulnerable to Covid-19. We ask that you don’t visit if you have test positive for COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms. Visitors are welcome to wear masks. Please be respectful of the needs of others when you are visiting Northern Stage.

Hand Sanitising

Alongside an increased cleaning schedule, we have installed hand sanitising stations and invested in paperless ticketing. We also recommend pre-ordering your interval drinks to reduce queues.


Please see our Safeguarding Children and Young People policy and procedures here.

This was always the case, but we really do want you to know it’s ok to nip to the toilet during a show. If you go when you need to go it will help us reduce queues at the interval!


To keep you and our staff safe, we will continue to adhere to the latest government guidance. As your performance date approaches we will be in touch regularly with details on what to expect from your visit – including things like how to move around the building safely.
