Covid-19: Nomad Theatre Programme news
We are looking at rescheduling many shows and we will keep in touch to keep you up to date with news of our activities.
The latest guidance (here) has been reviewed and confirmed to us via the Little Theatre Guild (here) that theatres can continue with rehearsals and performances in a COVID-secure location, providing no individual group is greater than six and such groups should not mingle.
So in practice we can operate a cast and crew with social distancing, plus an audience* and FOH teams.
* If you are watching a performance, you should:
- only attend in a group of no larger than 6, unless attending with those you live with or your support bubble.
- socially distance from people you do not live with (or who are not in your support bubble) – we will take measures to adhere to this when booking tickets.
Nomes Youth Theatre is open…
There is an exemption to the legal gatherings limit for the purposes of education, training, formal registered childcare, and supervised activities for children (including before and after school clubs, or other out-of-school setting provision for children.
Youth groups and other children’s groups are also exempt from the gatherings limit. Family and friends can continue to provide informal childcare as long as groups from different households don’t exceed 6 people and the activity is strictly limited to childcare needs.
There’s more information on how we are keeping a Covid-safe environment for Nomes on the website here.
In many ways, we are lucky to be in a position where the cost of opening will not be prohibitive, so we have every confidence in the continuation of The Nomad Theatre and all our groups. We can’t wait to welcome everyone back, as soon as it’s safe to do so.Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at future Theatre events
