We will ask to see one of the following before you enter the theatre:

A negative lateral flow or PCR test taken within 48 hours of your visit. You will need to register your lateral flow test and access the QR code on the NHS App.

More information on the NHS COVID Pass and how to access the above documents can be found here

Please note the NHS App is not the same as the NHS Covid-19 app.

Masks must be worn when moving around the theatre unless exempt

We also encourage you to wear your mask throughout the performance  

Use hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities

Remain mindful of others and continue to make space when moving around the venue

Please ‘check in’ upon arrival

A Brief History of the Redgrave Theatre

Built in 1966 the Redgrave was originally known simply as the ‘Clifton College Theatre’. The design was based on the Mermaid Theatre in London and was the first purpose built school theatre in the country.

The theatre was officially opened by the actor Sir Michael Redgrave - an ex-student of the college. After Sir Michael's death in 1985 the building was renamed ‘The Redgrave Theatre’ in his honour.
