Strictly Cabaret X – Frequently Asked Questions


How will I get to the theatre?

Be sure to set aside more than enough time for your journey to the venue; if possible, walk or cycle at least part of the way. Please check your route if travelling by public transport as this may have recently changed.


How will my ticket work?

Every ticket must be purchased in advance as an e-ticket or print-at-home ticket. This will allow us to let you enter the theatre more easily, minimise the amount of time you may have to queue, and reduce contact with the front of house team. Seats will be allocated in advance of the show and socially distanced from the other groups. 


Will I need a face covering?

We shall be ensuring that face coverings are worn. If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, we would please ask that you wear an exemption lanyard which can be downloaded here.


What should I bring?

Please keep your belongings to a minimum and with you at all times. This will assist with bag checks, and we are unable to provide cloakroom facilities.


Will I be able to buy interval refreshments?

This performance will not include an interval. Please pre-order your drinks when you purchase your tickets.


What are the social distancing rules?

We have taken seats off sale to adhere to socially distancing laws. In line with government guidelines, audiences are separated from other social bubbles.

Whilst the capacity in the auditorium has been greatly reduced, you may need to pass someone to take your seat. Please mitigate any risk by keeping your face covering on at all times. The theatre will also ask you to maintain a safe social distance around the building and when you are queuing to take your seats.


What else is New Theatre Royal Lincoln doing?

To keep you safe, we shall be cleaning our theatre before every performance and regularly disinfecting.
