You may be asked to move through the foyer and not to linger—this is so people can access their allocated seat safely and efficiently.

We politely ask that you be increasingly aware of maintaining a safe distance from other patrons as you move through the venue, particularly when queueing at the box office, bar, toilets, and entry and exit points.
