Keeping you Safe

For performances at CBSO Centre, we continue to have a number of safety measures in place, and we are also continuing to work closely with our colleagues at Symphony Hall, to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience at all CBSO performances.

This page will be updated regularly, following the latest government advice and guidance.

Last updated: 12 November 2021


  • Advance online booking
  • Print at home / e-tickets
  • Face coverings recommended (exemption excluded) 
  • Temperature checks (for staff and contractors)
  • Hand sanitising stations 
  • Enhanced cleaning
  • Reduced capacity
  • Clear signage, and additional staff on hand to help
Due to the unreserved nature of Centre Stage concerts, there will be more seats available than tickets sold – allowing you to distance yourselves from others should you wish to.


Until the 27th February 2022 we will be continuing to offer a mix of standard and socially-distanced seating within Symphony Hall. From March 2022 all seats will revert to being standard seats and Symphony Hall will operate at full capacity for CBSO concerts.

We are also recommending our audience members continue to wear a face covering when at Symphony Hall and during performances (exemptions excluded).

If you feel unwell or have a high temperature, please do not visit the CBSO Centre.

If this happens prior to a concert for which you have tickets, we will be happy to credit the value of your tickets to your account so that you can use it on future ticket purchases.
