Changes to regulations for theatres

Following the Prime Minister's announcement of local alert level tiering, DCMS has alerted us to two changes that have been made in the regulations and guidance for the performing arts.

Theatres, cinemas and concert halls will be mandated to either collect Test and Trace data or display the QR code for the Test and Trace App. While some venues are already voluntary collecting these details as per the guidance it will now become mandatory for these venues to do so. 

In Tiers 1 (Medium) and Tier 2 (High) theatres, concert halls and cinemas will be exempt from requiring people to be seated while ordering food and drink. This will be a change to the current table service regulations.  

See the full guidance.
