The Lights theatre, Andover is delighted to receive a theatre industry recognised charter mark for its work to make the venue safe and welcoming
The much-loved local venue has been granted the use of Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre’s ‘See It Safely’ mark. The mark certifies that The Lights is complying with the latest Government and theatre industry COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the safety of their staff and audiences.
It comes ahead of the venue staging its small, but perfectly formed, winter season with a short run of shows designed to appeal to a wide audience. With theatrical comedy, stand-up, music and something for the little ones at Christmas, the venue is hoping to entice audiences back to the theatre after several months of Covid disruption.
Measures to keep audiences, staff and volunteers safe include social distancing, enhanced cleaning, ticketless entry, multiple sanitising points and a cashless booking system. The venue has also introduced a peace of mind bookings and refund policy.
You can find out more about the steps taken to both make and keep the venue safer at: www.thelights.org.uk/visiting/covid-19 Customers are encouraged to visit the page before booking and then prior to attending as advice may be subject to change. All ticket holders will receive an up-to-date information sheet shortly before they attend their chosen show.
The Lights team are confident that, although customers may see some changes around the venue, the team’s usual customer service and friendly faces remain the same. They want the customer experience at The Lights to be a positive one and are delighted to be able to welcome people back – albeit for limited shows and events at the moment.
