Are your events at Brio Entertainment still going ahead?

Our events are all planned to run as scheduled and listed on the What’s On page. We may still need to make some changes to dates in response to the changing situation but all ticket holders will be notified in advance if this is the case.


My event has been cancelled because of Covid-19 can I get a refund?

Yes, if your event has been cancelled because of Covid-19 you will get a refund.

Your refund will include the booking fee, but will exclude any delivery charge, refund protection or telephone service fees.

What about future events that haven’t been cancelled or postponed?

We are working closely with our event organisers and producers to find alternative dates for some events. We may need to switch off ticket sales in the short term whilst we find an alternative date.

If in the event, a future event you are attending has been cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19, we will contact ticket holders directly with further information.

Will I be entitled to a refund if I can’t attend an event because I have Coronavirus?

If you have opted for TicketSource Booking Protection when booking tickets, you may be entitled to a refund if you have tested positive and can provide evidence for this.

I don’t want to attend an event because I am concerned about Coronavirus, can I get a refund?

No, unfortunately refunds will not be issued in this case. At Brio Entertainment we want to make sure everyone can enjoy a show when they come visit us. We will have strict cleaning measures and guidelines in place to ensure that our audiences feel safe and comfortable whilst visiting our venues. We’re monitoring air quality and have ventilation running at 100% to ensure the safest possible environment.


FAQs – Attending Covid Secure Events

Will seating be socially distanced?

In line with government guidance, Shows from November 2021 onwards have been on sale with standard seating.

Theatre style seating in our venues sits well below our overall capacity with ventilation systems designed to cope with much larger audiences for standing events.

Are there any changes to arriving at and entering the venue?

We may stagger arrival times or use queueing systems to enable social distancing on entrance. We’ll let you know all of the details by email one week before show date.

You will be asked to sanitise your hands on arrival and it would help to have your tickets ready on a phone or tablet.

Will everyone need to take a Lateral Flow Test?

We request that all attendees take a Lateral Flow Test within 48 hours of the event start time. We strongly believe that testing is the best way to control risk and deliver shows in the safest possible environment.
This is important even for individuals who are fully vaccinated or have natural immunity as they may still be infected.

How do I prove that I am fully vaccinated?

Proof of vaccination is not currently required.

Will I need to wear a face covering?

Following recent government guidance, it is no longer mandatory to wear a face covering in our entertainment spaces.

However, we want all our customers to have an enjoyable experience, so we would ask that you wear face coverings on arrival and whilst moving throughout the venue, including accessing the toilets and bar facilities. You can remove your face covering to eat and drink whilst sat in your seat.

Are you operating test and trace at the venues?

Yes. We ask all customers to ensure they have downloaded the NHS Covid 19 Test and Trace app on their mobile devices before they arrive at the venue. QR codes will be on display at all entrances and customers will be asked to check-in to the venue via the app.

What extra measures are you taking to prevent the spread of the virus?

We have enhanced all cleaning, before, during and after your visit. Fresh air ventilation systems are in use throughout all events and we will be monitoring air quality. Regular cleaning will be in place across all toilets and public areas. You will see hand sanitiser units throughout the venue which we encourage you to use frequently throughout your visit and prior to entering the venue. We also ask you to wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds.

We will also be encouraging the wearing of face coverings throughout our entertainment spaces.

How will I know which restrictions apply to my event?

If you have bought your tickets with us direct or via TicketSource, we will send you all the information you need to know about your visit in advance via email, including door times, show times and arrival entrance.

We’ll also update you on any food and drink offers for your event. Also keep an eye on our social channels for all the latest updates and event info.
