Coronavirus (COVID-19) Closure Update

Following the official government notification which stipulates that people should avoid public buildings, we regret to announce that MADS Theatre will close to help slow the spread of coronavirus and to protect our patrons and volunteers. All public performances and social events are postponed, but we hope to be able to present the two remaining productions from our 2019-2020 season in the future. This is an unprecedented event for everyone and we thank you for your continued support and loyalty.

In the meantime, please watch this short video to hear about our plans and aspirations for the rest of 2020.  Thank you.

Best wishes
MADS Theatre

MADS COVID-19 Policy

Following on from the February UK Government update removing essentially all existing constraints, e.g. no longer requiring the wearing of face coverings in public but suggesting that there are still benefits to mask-wearing in enclosed and crowded spaces including theatres and hospitality venues, the MADS Covid policy, from March 1st, 2022 is as follows:-

• Mask-wearing is suggested for all attendees, but is deemed a personal choice.
     • There will no longer be a notice in the theatre requesting mask-wearing in the auditorium.
• Disposable masks will be available for anyone who asks.
• Vaccine status will not be checked.
• Hand sanitizer will continue to be available to encourage hygiene.
• Take extra care to avoid close contact with anyone who is at higher risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19.
• Backstage, all members should take appropriate precautions to reduce infection risk, e.g. all doors in the basement to the yard can be left open during productions to facilitate better ventilation.

MADS also recommends, as per UK government guidance from April 2022, that all members and patrons should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if you have symptoms of COVID-19 and either:

• you have a high temperature,
• you do not feel well enough to go to work or do your normal activities.

This policy is dated  April 11th, 2022 and will be revised as necessary in line with changing UK Government announcements.
