As the world has reopened, and we’re able to welcome you back into our venue again, we understand if you might feel a bit nervous.

We want to assure you that audience, staff and company safety have always been our top priorities, and never more so than now.

Summer 2022 season

For performances during our Summer 2022 season, both Traverse 1 and Traverse 2 have returned to General Admission seating.

The Traverse will continue to observe Covid-19 safety protocols in line with Scottish Government Guidance, and encourage audiences and staff to continue wearing of face masks whilst in the Traverse building, including during performances, unless medically exempt, and hand sanitisation being available upon entry into the venue.

Additional information

It's important to us that you feel safe and secure before and during your visit to the Traverse, so on this page, we're sharing documents that detail some of the key actions we're taking to help keep everyone who comes to our venue - audiences, cast and companies, and staff - Covid-safe.

They're not exhaustive in terms of all our measures, but we hope that you'll find them useful and reassuring:
