We are a registered COVID-Safe business, and our procedures follow strict guidelines set by the NSW State Government and Live Performance Australia. By registering on arrival you agree to follow our COVID-Safe plan and to follow direction from Belvoir staff.

Please stay at home. If you are unable to attend due to COVID related illness, we will try and find you a ticket for an alternative performance. Otherwise we will credit the cost of your ticket.

All audience above the age of 16 must have received 2 doses of an authorised COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination status will be checked at the door and patrons who are not fully vaccinated will not be able to enter the venue.

You can add your COVID-19 vaccination certificate to your Service NSW app which allows you to quickly check in and show proof of your vaccination status. Find out how here.

We will also allow patrons who carry a legitimate exemption from receiving a COVID-19 vaccination to enter the theatre. Proof of exemption will need to be provided with either a NSW Government Medical Contraindication form or an Australian Government Immunisation Medical Exemption form. In addition, we require patrons with exemptions to provide proof of a negative COVID test within the last 72 hours, this can be in the form of a text or email from NSW Health.

Masks are mandatory in the theatre building. You can raise your mask to eat and drink, but we ask that you please wear your mask covering your nose and mouth at all other times, unless you have a legitimate medical reason.

Everyone who visits Belvoir is required by law to register for contact tracing. Please use the Service NSW QR Code in the foyer to register your details (watch the video below to see how).

Seating will not be socially distanced inside the auditorium. You may see some empty seats in the auditorium, please don’t move to them unless an usher has asked you to move. Please keep in mind, restrictions change and you will be seated in accordance with the NSW Public Health Regulations at the time of the performance, not at the time of purchasing your ticket.

Wednesday evening and Saturday matinee performances of At What Cost? will be seated at 70% capacity for those who prefer a smaller house.

We will open the building one hour before showtime. You can head downstairs to the Hal Bar, where there is seating in the foyer (50 pax capacity) and in the Downstairs Theatre (20 pax capacity). Please maintain 1.5m social distancing wherever possible. Food and beverages can only be consumed while seated.

The capacity of these spaces is strictly limited by the 4 square metre rule. When these spaces are full our staff will kindly ask you to keep moving into the Upstairs Theatre. You can head straight into the Upstairs Theatre any time from half an hour before the show.

In order to limit contact we will no longer tear your ticket at the doors to the theatre. Instead we’ll send you an e-ticket which will be scanned upon entry. Either print this out, or have it handy on your phone, and an usher will point you to your seat. If you don’t have access to email our box office will be able to print you a ticket on the day.

Hand sanitising stations are installed throughout the building. Please wash and sanitise your hands whenever possible and sneeze and cough into your elbow.

The Hal Bar is now cashless and will be open so you can enjoy a refreshing beverage or bite to eat before the show. To help manage queues and seating, bars will cease service ten minutes prior to the performance commencing. Pre-order your interval drinks before the show starts and save time.

As part of our COVID-safe plan, food and drinks may not be taken into the Upstairs Theatre.

Belvoir uses 100% fresh air from outside the theatre, which is then cooled or heated and distributed through the building in our air-conditioning. In many buildings a mixture of fresh and recycled air is used for climate control. By using 100% fresh air Belvoir reduces the risk of COVID circulating inside the building.

Belvoir has also implemented a more intensive daily cleaning regime at the theatre, and our staff will do regular additional cleaning of high-touch surfaces during, before, and after each performance. The includes railings, door handles, lift buttons, toilet and cubicle locks, chair backs and tabletops.

Belvoir will continue to follow the latest NSW Government’s COVID-19 advice and requirements to keep you safe.
