Covid Safety at Waterside

It is Waterside’s utmost priority to ensure our audiences, artists, visiting companies and staff feel both comfortable and safe when visiting the venue. Whilst most restrictions have now been lifted, it is our intention to continue with some measures. 

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • encouraging the use of face masks whilst moving around the building, for those who are not exempt
  • additional hand sanitisation for audiences
  • glass screens in staff areas, including the box office and bar/coffee shop
  • contactless / card payments only
  • track and trace system in place for all artists, visitors and staff
  • visors, masks and additional sanitisation stations for staff
  • encouraging visitors to stay safe and maintain a safe distance whilst moving around the building
  • artists will be advised to take a lateral flow test before their visit

Our galleries, Sup' Bar & Coffee House will re-open as normal from 10am on Tuesday 31 August. Opening hours are Mon-Sat 10-17:00 and until late on event nights.
