The Street - Venue Safety

A range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures are being put in place to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff and stakeholders:

  • Regularly cleaning and sanitising our venues and publicly accessible areas with approved disinfectant products throughout the day.
  • Maintaining physical distancing requirements (1 person per 4 square metres, and 1.5 metres apart) and introducing new signage, to help visitors safely move through our spaces.
  • Installing hand sanitiser stations around our spaces and maintaining handwash in bathrooms.
  • Requesting all visitors attending any events in our spaces supply first name and phone number to allow for government contact tracing if required. All information will be kept in a secure place in accordance with privacy rules for 28 days, then destroyed.
  • All work presented will be less than two hours duration.
  • Patrons are encouraged to leave The Street once the performance has finished and not mingle so the bar will be closed post-show.

Dear Street family

 

There has never been a month like this one.

Every day a moveable feast

and now our 2020

doesn’t look like anything like the one we’d mapped out.

 

We closed our doors as the COVID-19 situation accelerated and spent the last three weeks working with our artists and companies to address the coming months.  Front of House have put in a mighty effort getting in touch with those of you holding tickets and we thank you for your help in this endeavour.  Like each of you, we are working as fast as we can to fully grasp the situation now and into the future. We’re very grateful for your messages of support. And likewise our thoughts are with each of you, your families and loved ones.

Navigating unchartered territory we are exploring the many ways to stay connected to you. We’re still being creative, we believe artists can play a vital role in how this story unfolds, and we’re planning for when our stages will have performers on them again.

 

So we’ll come to you soon. We ask that you stick with our performing arts sector and show your support to those artists, companies and organisations that are an essential part of your community

Please stay in touch and keep an eye on all our social channels.

Be kind, stay well, and take care of yourselves.

 

Your Street xx
