Please use the hand sanitiser provided as you enter the theatre. Sanitiser can also be found at designated points throughout the building.   


Enhanced cleaning

Our venues are professionally cleaned daily and our teams continually clean common contact surfaces throughout the day.


Face coverings

We recommend that all visitors wear a face covering whilst visiting our venues in England. When seated in the auditorium you may remove your face covering to enjoy food and drinks. Face coverings are mandatory in our Scottish venues, unless you are clinically exempt. Our theatre staff will be wearing face coverings in all venues.


At-Seat Ordering

No need to queue at the bar. We offer at-seat ordering and delivery. You can place an order with the Auditorium staff when you’re in your seat; just check out the menu, raise your hand and the team will take your order. Everything will be sealed & delivered to your seat.


Cashless payments

We have gone cash free. We accept all major credit/debit cards, Apple Pay or Google Pay. We have also increased our contactless limit to £45.



Which tests are acceptable?

We can accept evidence of a lateral flow test or PCR test. Lateral flow tests are readily available and free in the UK for all customers; you do not need to be a UK citizen or eligible for NHS services to access them.

Lateral flow tests are available to order for free from the website.

You can also collect them for free from pharmacies.

How do I record my results and get the required evidence?

You must complete your test within the 48 hours prior to your visit.

If you receive a positive result from a lateral flow test you must not attend; you must now arrange for a free PCR test to confirm the result, and follow the government’s guidance for self-isolation.

If your test result is negative, you need to register the result with the NHS Self Reporting Tool in order to get the evidence you need to be permitted entry into the Kit Kat Club. This service is free and available to everyone; you do not need to be a UK citizen or eligible for NHS services to use it.

To access the Self Reporting Tool view here. Once you have registered your results you will receive a text and/or email confirmation. This is the evidence we require you to bring with you and present to our staff on arrival at the venue.

What happens if I don't bring evidence with me?

Please note that failure to provide the required evidence may result in you being refused entry without a refund. Lateral Flow tests take 20-30 minutes to complete and you can complete this at any point in the 48 hours prior to your arrival. Tests are freely available from pharmacies, including within the local vicinity of the theatre.

I am medically exempt, or I’ve been told not to take a lateral flow or PCR test because I have had COVID-19 in the last 90 days.

In this situation, please contact the venue Access Champion or Box Office Team at ahead of your visit. The team will advise you on the evidence we require.
