Staying Covid-Safe at the Criterion


Looking after our cast, crew, front of house teams and audiences is our top priority. 

How will I be able to purchase a drink from the bar?

In order to avoid unnecessary touch contact, and reduce risk to volunteers and audience members, we have made the decision not to operate our bar as we normally would. The bar space within our theatre building is too small to facilitate social distancing. We have developed our own bar ordering app so that you can order drinks on any device which allows you internet access. You do not need to download anything. By following this link on the website you can order, pay for and track the delivery progress of your drinks. Simply order and pay for your drinks, and they will then be delivered to a collection point. The app will tell you that your drinks have been delivered. Drinks can be pre-ordered for a particular performance and for the interval. 

How do I use the bar app?

You can access the bar app at Where possible, please order for both pre-show and interval BEFORE 6.30PM ON THE NIGHT OF THE PRODUCTION YOU ARE ATTENDING. Because of social distancing regs, we could potentially have only one person behind the bar at one time. It helps if you can order your drink in good time. Any drinks ordered after this time may not be ready for you.

If you have any problems using the app, please contact
