Please read our updated Covid-19 measures below.

Face coverings at performances

We are continuing to ask audience members to wear face coverings throughout performances and in all indoor parts of Snape Maltings, The Red HouseHall and our other venues, unless you are eating or drinking in one of our cafes, have a medical exemption, or for those under 12 years old.

If you are exempt, please let our team know on arrival.

If you forget your face covering, members of staff can provide you with masks on arrival.

Significant safety measures and COVID mitigations remain in place across the organisation, including enhanced cleaning and ventilation, regular anti-viral fogging, as well as strict protocols for staff and artists.

Arriving at Snape Maltings

There is plenty of car parking on site, including spaces for blue badge holders.

Please make your way to the Concert Hall entrance and be ready to show your ticket. Staff and signs will help you find your way around.

During the event

It is a requirement to wear a face covering throughout performances unless you have a medical exemption.

Once asked to leave the auditorium, audiences are kindly asked to make their way outside and not to gather in the foyers.

Holiday Accommodation

Holiday Accommodation Cancellations

If the booking is cancelled due to Covid by the visitor we will cancel the booking in the hopes of it being rebooked for the same time. If the property is rebooked then there will be a full refund. If the property remains empty during the proposed visit time the booking will be postponed until a mutually agreed date.

If the visitor decides to leave part way through a visit there will not be any refund.

Contracting the virus whilst here

If the situation arises whereby a visitor is diagnosed with the virus whilst staying here we will act on advice from Public Health England.
