Putting Your Safety First

LSO St Luke's remains closed to the public, but we will welcome audiences to concerts again after 17 May, in line with the government's roadmap to easing lockdown. 100% of concertgoers in the Autumn said they felt safe at LSO St Luke’s and considered the safety measures in place to be 'good' or 'very good'.

What we'll be doing

  • Reducing the number of tickets available for each performance.
  • Following all social distancing guidelines, to ensure that audience members, staff and performers can stay a safe distance from each other at all times.
  • Cleaning the hall and each seat between performances.
  • Providing hand sanitising stations at the entrance.
  • Using paper-free ticketing, programme notes and contactless donation points.
  • Operating a one-way system so you can move safely through the venue.
  • Asking each member of every party of visitors to provide their name and contact details, and retaining these details for 21 days, in compliance with NHS Test & Trace.
  • Displaying an official NHS QR code poster at the entrance to the venue, so visitors can 'check in' on the NHS Test & Trace app.
  • Equipping our staff with PPE.

What we ask of you

  • Stay at home if you or someone you know has experienced any of the symptoms of COVID-19 in the two weeks prior to the concert.
  • Please do not arrive any earlier than 30 minutes before the concert.
  • Maintain a distance of at least one metre from staff and other audience members at all times. Seating in the Jerwood Hall will be spaced to allow this.
  • We encourage audience members to bring and wear a face covering, unless you are exempt, and to keep a safe distance from others while moving around the venue.
  • Use our e-ticket system and view programme notes on your mobile device.
  • Visitors are encouraged to check in using the NHS Test and Trace App. If you are unable to scan the QR code, but would like to supply your details, please speak to a member of staff when you arrive.

Important information

Your visit

  • Please note that all tickets must be booked in advance and will not be available on the door.
  • Please only book tickets for yourself and people in your household group/support bubble.
  • When you arrive, you will be greeted at the gate, then asked to queue in churchyard space, observing the distances marked out on the ground.
  • Once you reach the front of the queue, show your confirmation email to our staff.
  • You will then be guided into the Jerwood Hall and shown to your seat, which will be positioned at a safe distance from the other chairs. For now, you will not be able to choose where you sit in the Hall.
  • Free digital concert programmes will be available to view on your mobile phone or tablet. Free wi-fi will be provided.
  • Once the concert is over, please remain in your seat until you are guided to leave by our stewards, to ensure that you are able to exit the Hall safely.
