COVID Update

Your safety is important to us. In response to the latest COVID guidance, we’d like to remind you to bring a mask to the performance and you will need to wear your face covering whilst moving around the building and at your seat, you may remove your mask whilst eating or drinking.

To enter the venue you must have one of the following

  • NHS vaccine pass or approved international equivalent

  • A valid text or email of a negative lateral flow test taken in the last 48 hours. You can report your result via the NHS COVID-19 app or online

  • Proof of exemption

  • We have lateral flow tests available at the door if required.

When you arrive at the Ironworks, you will be asked for your Covid vaccine pass. If you are not double vaccinated you will need to take a lateral flow test and register the result via the Government website before coming to the Studios and bring evidence of your negative results.

Ironworks Studios has a ventilation system that filters fresh air into the venue. To help protect our audiences and performers, all staff are required to take a lateral flow test before their shift and will wear a mask throughout their working day.

We thank you for your support and look forward to welcoming you to Ironworks Studios Brighton.

Ironworks Studios is a Covid-secure venue and we are following government guidance to provide the safest live performance experience for you. Take a look at the information below to see what we’re doing to keep you, our artists and our staff safe.
