Good practice covering live performances continues to be subject to changes which we implement any recommendations soon as they are announced. Below is our current practice, but this may of course have to change to allow for any new regulations.

  • Deep cleaning of the studio between events

  • Balanced air extraction from stage area

  • Provision of hand-washing facilities at every table

  • Ongoing live-streaming of concerts - to increase capacity and to allow participation of those who prefer to attend from the safety of their own homes 

  • Opportunities for social distancing as appropriate.
