COVID-19 and reopening

How is air circulated in the theatre?

Our air handling system is fed by filtered fresh air. Used air is extracted to the outside and is not recirculated. Filters are changed as part of regular, routine maintenance and we have full control over the air system – both fan speed and temperature – throughout the theatre.

How many people will be in the venue at one time?

There will be a maximum of 260 audience members at any one performance. You can expect around 20 members of Front of House staff to be on hand to make your visit as smooth and as safe as possible. That makes a total of 280 in the public areas of the theatre.

How will queues be minimised?

We are operating a timed entry system. When you book a ticket, you will be given a time when you should arrive at the theatre. Staggering arrival times allows us to keep maximum distance between audience members as they arrive.

To avoid queues within the theatre, you will be sent your tickets electronically. You can either print these at home or show them on your mobile device.

You will have the option to order your drinks online before your visit to minimise queues at the bar. You will receive instructions on how to do this via text on the morning of the performance. You will be able to purchase drinks at the bar, but we will not be selling any food. If you would like to purchase food, St. JOHN restaurant will be selling pastries from a pop-up stand outside the theatre.

We will not be selling programmes or merchandise.

Will I have to wear a mask?

Yes, we ask that all audience members wear a mask at all times, except, as briefly as possible, to eat or drink. Members of staff will also be wearing masks.

We are aware that some people cannot wear masks for health reasons. If this applies to you, you can download a card here which you can print to show to anyone who might ask why you aren’t wearing a mask. This card is not mandatory, but you may find it makes your visit smoother.

Can I bring a group? If I bring a group do you need the details of all members of the group?

Group bookings should be made by emailing groups@bridgetheatre.co.uk. We will need to understand how many people are sat together in bubbles. We will also need the group organiser to be responsible for communicating to the full group regarding NHS Test and Trace, should this become relevant.

How will I travel to the venue?

That’s up to you. If you travel by public transport, we strongly encourage you to wear a face mask, as required by law. Find out more about how to get to us, including information on bicycle access and parking, here.

Will I be able to meet the performer(s) at stage door?

No, in the interests of safety, we will not be allowing anyone to come to Stage Door without prior authorisation.

Will I be able to order a drink?

Yes, our bar will be open (operating behind a newly-fitted Perspex screen, for the safety of you and our staff), but we encourage you to pre-order your drinks online before your visit. You will receive a text on the morning of your visit with instructions on how to do this.

Will I be able to purchase a programme?

No, in the interests of minimising queuing and reducing the number of surfaces you may touch at the venue, we will not be selling programmes or merchandise.

Will I be able to re-enter the auditorium during the performance?

This depends on which show you are seeing. There will be no re-entry during a single monologue. If you are coming to see a pair of Talking Heads performances, you will be able to re-enter the auditorium in the short changeover between performers.

Will I be able to sit with my friends?

We ask all our audience members to book to sit only with people in their household or bubble. So if you live with your friends or have formed a support bubble with them, then the answer is yes! Otherwise, we ask you to book to sit separately from them and to keep a 1 metre distance from them as much as possible while in the theatre.

Will I be able to use a hearing device?

Yes, as for all Bridge Theatre shows, you will be able to make use of our assisted listening system. You can find out more about this here.

We now ask that you bring your own headphones (standard 3.5mm jack) for the device.

To help us ensure we have the all the devices we need for every performance, we will ask you at the point of booking whether you will need a hearing device. They can be collected from the Box Office on arrival. The devices themselves will be cleaned thoroughly before and after every use.

Will I be able to use the toilet?

Yes, you will be able to use the toilet. Our facilities may look a little different, however: certain sinks and urinals will be out of use, to allow audience members to maintain social distance.

You may not be able to use the facilities post show. Please take this into account beforehand.

Will the cloakroom be open?

No, the cloakroom will not be open. You will be able to take your belongings into the auditorium with you, but we ask that you please refrain from bringing large bags or luggage.

Will the foyer be open before the show for a drink?

The foyer will be open for a limited time before every performance. You will be able to collect pre-ordered drinks or order at the bar. However, to help us keep maximum distance between audience members, please do not arrive before your allotted time. You will find this on your booking confirmation and your ticket.

Will the staff, cast and crew be regularly tested?

As per government guidelines, staff, cast and crew will not be routinely tested for COVID-19. However, they will be wearing face masks (except cast members while they are performing) and keeping their distance from one another as much as possible. Any member of staff who has any reason to believe they might test positive for COVID-19 will be asked not to attend until they have completed the appropriate amount of self-isolation or tested negative for the virus.

How often will the theatre be cleaned?

The theatre will be cleaned throughout the day, between every show. Front of House areas will additionally be cleaned during shows, while audience members are in the auditorium.

How many tickets can I buy in one transaction?

You can purchase up to 9 tickets in one transaction.

Will there still be provisions for people in wheelchairs?

Yes, patrons who use wheelchairs will be able to book as normal. Find out more about our Access provisions here.

Do I have to pay the congestion charge?

The theatre is located just inside the Congestion Charge and ULEZ zones. However, there are a number of local parking options, including the nearby Q-Park (use code BRIDGE20 when booking at least 24 hours in advance for a 20% discount), which are outside the charge zone.

Please note that, as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, Transport for London have extended the Congestion Charge to seven days a week.

Where are the nearest bicycle racks?

There are a number of bicycle racks, plus two Santander Cycle docking stations, on Tooley Street, just behind the theatre. There are also bike racks on Duchess Walk, which runs alongside the building.

How often are seats cleaned?

We clean the seats before and after every performance. We also regularly spray them with a virucide which remains active for up to 10 days.

Who should I contact if I show symptoms after attending the venue?

If you start to develop symptoms of Coronavirus, you should self-isolate and get tested as quickly as possible. If you then test positive, NHS Test and Trace will ask you where you have been recently and who you have seen. They will then get in touch with anyone you may have been in close contact with to advise them on what to do next.

Will I be contacted if someone has Coronavirus at the venue?

If one of your fellow audience members tests positive for Coronavirus following a performance, you may receive a call from NHS Test and Trace, asking you to get tested or self-isolate. We ask that you follow any advice they may give you.

How often are these surfaces wipes?

The theatre will be cleaned throughout the day, between every show. Front of House areas will additionally be cleaned during shows, while audience members are in the auditorium.

How often are toilets cleaned?

Toilets will be cleaned throughout the day, before, during and after shows.

Can I get a refund if I have symptoms/asked to isolate?

Yes, no one with Coronavirus symptoms or who has been asked to self-isolate should attend the theatre. With that in mind, we have updated our terms and conditions so that you now have until 2 hours before a performance to return or exchange your tickets for these reasons.

Can I collect my ticket at the Box Office?

No, we are currently only offering e-tickets. You will receive these via email after booking, and you can print them at home or show them on a mobile device. You will also receive your tickets via text on the morning of your booked performance.

If you experience any issues, do email boxoffice@bridgetheatre.co.uk or let a member of staff know when you arrive at the venue.

Can I use cash to buy tickets/drinks at the theatre?

No, we are currently only accepting card and contactless payments.

Can I stay in the theatre between shows?

No, to allow us to deep-clean the venue in between performances, we ask all audience members to leave straight away after seeing a show, even if they have a ticket for a performance later in the day.

Why have I been allocated a timeslot to enter the venue?

We are operating a timed entry system. Staggering arrival times allows us to keep maximum distance between audience members as they arrive.

How does a cast member get their hair/make-up/costume done in a socially distant way?

Our hair, make-up and costume teams will be keeping their distance from one another and from the cast as much as possible. Where close work is required, staff will wear PPE. Costumes and equipment will be cleaned regularly and thoroughly.

What happens if I miss my timeslot? Will I still be able to enter the venue?

We ask that you do your best to arrive at your allocated timeslot, to help us keep maximum distance between audience members. However, if you do miss your slot, you will still be able to enter the venue.

Will latecomers be admitted?

No, latecomers will not be admitted, except in the short changeover between Talking Heads performers.

Have ticket prices been reduced with the VAT reduction?

You will notice that ticket prices for our current productions are lower than normal. In part, this is possible because of the reduction in VAT. Money gained from the lower VAT rate is also going towards the costs of the additional safety measures we have put in place.

I haven't received my new date for The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage yet. Are you still planning on producing this production?

Yes, we are still planning on producing this production, as soon as it is safe to do so. If you have already purchased a ticket for this production, we will be in touch with you directly when we have more information. If you are yet to book a ticket, please keep an eye on our website: tickets aren’t currently available to purchase, but they will be once we have rescheduled dates for the production.

About The Bridge

Who are we?

London Theatre Company was founded by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr on leaving the National Theatre after 12 years. Tim Levy later joined them as co-directors in 2020.

The Bridge is its first home, a new 900-seat adaptable auditorium designed to answer the needs of contemporary audiences and theatre-makers and is capable of responding to shows with different formats (end-stage, thrust-stage and promenade). The venue won the Royal Institute of British Architecture London Award 2018 and is the first wholly new theatre of scale to be added to London’s commercial theatre sector in 80 years.  The Bridge was designed by Steve Tompkins and Roger Watts of Haworth Tompkins Architects (winner of the 2014 Stirling Prize).

The Bridge focuses on the commissioning and production of new shows, as well as staging the occasional classic.

What opportunities are there to work at The Bridge?

Current vacancies and information about working with us can be found at Work With Us.

Can I hire The Bridge?

Our auditorium, main foyer and lower foyer are available to hire as an exciting background for conferences, launches or other events, subject to our performance schedule.

For more information see our hires page.

There is an administration fee of £2 per transaction.

If you are unable to return the ticket(s) at least 48 hours before the performance, we may be able to resell them on your behalf once we have sold all our own tickets.

    Special Event is scheduled. Please note if there is no show currently playing these times will vary so do check with boxoffice@bridgetheatre.co.uk before making a specific trip to confirm the tickets are ready for collection, if collecting before the day of the performance. If you are purchasing tickets for someone else, we advise that you have the tickets posted to you so that you can pass them on ahead of the performance. If this is not possible then please contact the box office to arrange for the tickets to be transferred into a different name.
  • E-ticket: Your e-ticket will be emailed to your confirmation email address with an attached PDF. You can either print this out and bring it with you on the day of the performance or have it available on your electronic device so it can be scanned to allow entry.
  • Text: If you have added your mobile number to your Bridge Theatre account then your tickets will be sent in a text to you on the day of the show. These can be presented at the entrance to the auditorium.

My tickets are lost/haven’t arrived – what can I do?

If your tickets have not arrived by the day of the performance, you may collect duplicate tickets by presenting the payment card and/or the confirmation email at the theatre. If you misplace your tickets feel free to email boxoffice@bridgetheatre.co.uk in advance of the performance for a reprint. Unfortunately, we are not able to post any duplicates.

If you have purchased tickets for someone else, please contact the box office on 0333 320 0051 to transfer the tickets into their name.

Why do I have to give my personal details when booking a ticket?

Contact information is helpful for us to have in case there is a problem with your ticket or the performance and we need to get in touch. We will not sell your details or add you to a mailing list without your consent. If you prefer not to give any details, then please purchase tickets in person at the theatre.

If you buy a ticket on our website, we collect your name, address and email address, you can also input your contact phone number, but this is not required. We also process your payment card information – although we don’t handle it directly or retain it: it’s all dealt with by our payment processor.

If you buy a ticket over the phone, we collect your name and calling telephone number. We’ll also collect your postal address if we’re posting you the tickets, or your email address if we’re sending them to you that way. We collect your payment card details, although we don’t process them ourselves – that’s done by our payment processor – or keep them.

If you buy a ticket, or anything else like food and drink, in our venues we will only collect data if you use a payment card, and then only to process the payment – which, once again, is done by our payment processing partner not by us.

We will use the information we’ve collected to handle your admission to the play or event for which you’ve bought tickets; to process and track your payments and to deal with any issues that may arise including complaints and refunds.
