Staying Covid-Safe at the Criterion


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

Where do we go during the interval if we can’t use the bar?

After exiting the auditorium using the new one-way system, you may wish to stay in the car park to get some fresh air, socially distanced of course. If you have ordered a drink for the interval, these will be waiting for you under cover, in the car park. We would ask that you order both pre-show and interval drinks prior to your visit. This helps our bar staff immensely.

However, we recognise that as the Autumn months draw in, the weather may not be conducive to this option. So where the weather prevents this, you can re-enter the building at the front door, collect any interval drinks you may have booked from the foyer, and return to your seat in the Auditorium. If you wish to use the toilet facilities, you should again, enter the building at the front door, and queue for the loos at the end of the bar. You will be able to return to your seat in the auditorium from here. However, as we have a one way system in place, if you wish to return to the car park for some fresh air, you will need to use the exit from the Auditorium and walk around again. This is unavoidable and please be patient with us as we have tried to make this as safe as possible, whilst recognising the limitations of the building.
