We’re really looking forward to welcoming you back to Madding Crowd at full capacity from 19th July. Please consider the below before attending a gig. 

If you have Covid symptoms
Please do not attend if you have a temperature, a continuous cough, or a loss of taste or smell. If you have recently been in contact with anyone who has tested positive, please do not attend either. We will refund your tickets if either of these are the case.


We would like to reassure our guests that the venue has a state-of-the-art ventilation system which replenishes 100% of the air 7 times an hour, reducing the risk of transmission of airborne particles. 

No Vaccine Passports
We will not be asking for proof of vaccination, nor a negative test result on entry as it is not a legal requirement, and many people are still waiting to receive both doses. However, we encourage people to test themselves regularly with the free lateral flow tests available via the NHS.

In the venue
Our staff will continue to test themselves before each shift and are encouraged to wear a mask/visor throughout the show as this advice is still being recommended within crowded spaces.

We have masks available behind the bar if people decide they would prefer to wear one while at the venue.

Our sanitising stations across the venue will still be available for use and we will ensure our toilets continue to be covid compliant.

Our staff will move around the venue cleaning touch-spots etc with anti-viral spray.
