COVID-19 SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES AND MEASURES IN PROUD VENUES
We have put in place comprehensive, industry standard measures across all our venues. For your safety, please read the information below and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact one of our sales team prior to your visit.
Guidance for Our Guests
• Queuing guests must maintain 2 metres distance between each other when entering the premises – Pavement markings will indicate appropriate distance
• Our Staff will be trained in social distancing on entry and in the venue
• Guests will be called from the head of the queue and asked to have their booking info ready so that they can quickly enter and be directed to their allocated table. Guests will be instructed by the host at entrance where to go for the cloakroom.
• A host will be present in the entrance foyer to direct guests which doors to use for entrance to the venue in order to reach their table directly. We ask that you follow all host directions and adhere to any signage in venue and guidance from our service team, in order to help us maintain appropriate social distancing and to keep you and other guests safe.
• Please be ready to make payment within 15 minutes of the end of the show as your table will need to be cleaned and made ready for the later seating. Our servers will inform you 30 minutes prior so that you have time to prepare for payment. We ask you kindly to help our staff keep all our guests safe by exiting promptly and allowing us to clean the venue thoroughly.
• If there is no subsequent booking on the table, it will be at the General Manager’s discretion to confirm if a later exit will be possible
• If guests wish to stay for a later show, it is at the General Manager’s discretion. The decision will be dependent on availability of a table and will only be permitted if social distancing guidelines can be adhered to, whilst accommodating all other bookings on the night. Should the General Manager be unable to find a space, then this will be relayed to the guest. It is our responsibility at all times to protect our team and other guests.
• On exit, guests will be directed to the ground floor fire exit to the left of the grand staircase if you are facing the entrance. All guests will be asked to make their way swiftly out of the front doors.
• Tables may be asked to leave one at a time, and if necessary, this will be coordinated by floor leaders who will ensure a socially distanced and safe dispersal.
• Only one person at a time will be able to collect items left in cloakroom to ensure appropriate social distancing is maintained.
• A member of staff will be present by access to the toilet areas to monitor restroom occupancy.
• No more than 3 women will be allowed in the toilet areas on either ground or mezzanine floor at any one time to prevent crowding and ensure social distancing is maintained.
• No more than 2 men will be allowed in the toilet areas on either ground or mezzanine floor at any one time to prevent crowding and ensure social distancing is maintained.
• Please respect signage in all restrooms that highlight the importance of hand washing. Please ensure you have washed your hands before leaving the restroom and returning to your table.
• We ask guests to please not use facilities marked for staff or performers nor to enter doors marked for staff entry only
Please wear your facemasks when using the toilets
• The outside Smoking area will be restricted to no more than 5 persons at any one time – to be monitored by security guards and the host present in the entrance foyer no one person should remain more than 5 minutes to allow all guests access during a break period.
