I’m concerned about security in London at the moment, what is being done by the theatre to keep us safe?
We are part of a security network run by the Society of London Theatres, which helps to ensure that we are responding to up to date information. Regular security checks occur within the building and the surrounding area, while our numerous and continuously monitored external and internal CCTV cameras enable security personnel to respond quickly to any unusual activity.
Security is present throughout the day and enhanced during show time. Bag searches and random body scans using handheld devices are taking place on arrival, therefore we encourage patrons to arrive in plenty of time and to not bring large backpacks and suitcases to the theatre. Our Security team also carry portable body cameras which record visual and audio footage.
If you see anything that causes you concern while at the theatre, just speak to a member of staff and they will take the necessary action.
