The Platform Venue


Coronavirus measures in place

The Platform has a number of measures in place to keep our staff and customers safe while inside the Platform. Below you can find further details on what to expect when you attend a Platform event. 

  • We have limited audience numbers to encourage social distancing. Seating will remain unreserved but we encourage leaving one seat between parties.
  • We ask that customers continue to wear face coverings when inside the venue unless seated or exempt.
  • Please use the hand sanitiser stations located within the building whenever possible.
  • All customers must scan the QR code at the door using the NHS App on their smartphone. If you are unable to do this we will require your name and telephone number.
  • Please distribute your tickets between your party so each person has one ticket on arrival.
  • Please tear off your own ticket stub and place in the container provided.
  • Please use contactless payments if possible.
  • Protective screens remain in place at the bar.
  • Additional cleaning of touch points will take place during events.

The safety of our audiences and staff is paramount and these measures are in place solely for this reason. Please respect other audience members and in particular staff who are working hard under difficult circumstances. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
