Covid-19



In response to on-going government legislation, Half Moon is presently delivering our full Youth Theatre, Youth Service, youth outreach programmes online until at least mid-February. Our schools and children’s centres programme aims to recommence in-person once these settings re-open. We are continuing our artform development and filming for performance programme. We are able to do this as we have in place a rigorous and living risk assessment in response to the most up-to-date published Covid-19 safety guidelines for England and as we operate as a Visit England’s ‘Good to Go’ kitemark approved venue.

Until further notice our performance and gallery programme at Half Moon continues online – details are on our What’s On page. Later in 2021, we aim to restart our work on tour.

Going forward, for staff and users, our COVID-19 prevention measures continue and include the following:

For all activity at Half Moon we will:  

  • Regularly clean spaces, public areas and toilets including between all sessions / activity;
  • Implement guidance on how to move around the building supported by enhanced signage including promoting the use of our unique QR code to support NHS Test and Trace;
  • Provide antibacterial gel and enhanced handwashing facilities;
  • Ensure that face coverings / masks are worn in line with guidance;
  • Maintain and promote social distance in line with guidance;
  • Minimise the number of people coming in and out of the building;
  • Use temperature screening for everyone coming into the building;
  • Ensure that anyone with COVID-19 symptoms does not come to the building and follows government guidance regarding Test and Trace.

At Half Moon, we aim to be as safe as possible for everyone. With your support we are confident that our many participants and stakeholders can safely enjoy coming to Half Moon. We cannot stop COVID-19 but if we work together, we can minimise the risks.

Half Moon Theatre is a charity and ticket sales are one of our sources of funding. We recognise that this is a difficult time for many of us. However, if you are able to consider making a donation, it would be hugely appreciated.
