The Marine Theatre is committed to keeping everyone as safe and secure as possible throughout their visit during this Covid period. We are:

  • Collecting visitors’ information for Contact Track and Trace
  • Reducing capacity to socially distance
  • Increasing the volume and intensity of cleaning surfaces and contact points across the building.
  • Putting up directional signs
  • Creating socially-distanced queuing for toilets and other areas
  • Providing contactless payment for all products
  • Sanitising all public areas before opening and after closing
  • We are also taking the same safety-focused approach in all other areas of our business including performance and rehearsal situations


While you’re with us there are a few things to keep in mind.

If you’re watching a show:

  • If it’s inside, you have to wear a mask for the duration of the performance (masks can be removed while eating and drinking if seated)
  • You don’t need to wear a mask for outdoor performances
  • We ask that any customer displaying any signs or symptoms that could be Covid-related do not attend events and follow Government advice on self-isolation


To aid in Contact Track and Trace, and in line with Government guidelines, all customers’ contact details are entered when booking online, you will not need to provide them again at the Marine.

In the event of cases being linked back to a Marine Theatre customer, we can work with health authorities to contact everyone who we have details of, to limit further transmission and keep people safe.

Your details will not be kept longer than 21 days, are kept separate from our customer information systems, and will not be used for anything but to aid Contact Track and Trace. You may opt out of providing this information if you so wish.

Asking for customer details for this in no way infringes your rights, and is in line with GDPR or the Data Protection Act.

Thank you for helping us keep each other safer.

Refunds and rescheduling

Many events have been rescheduled, with the new arrangements made public below as soon as decisions are made.

Ticket-holders will be notified of changes by phone or email as soon as possible—it is not necessary to contact the theatre and we appreciate your patience at this difficult time.

If you can not see the details for a particular event, that means we are still making arrangements to move it or a decision has not being taken on whether it will go ahead. We ask customers to avoid calling the Marine as our staff are working from home.

If a performance is rescheduled, the ticket will be valid for the new date and you do not need to contact us.

If you are not available on the new date or an event is cancelled, you are entitled to a refund. The Marine is a charity with 80% of funding coming from ticket sales. If you feel you can, please consider forfeiting your refund as a donation to the Marine Theatre at this difficult time.

If you would like a refund to a rescheduled performance, you should contact the vendor from where you bought the ticket.

If this was from Ticket Source, refunds are automatic when there is cancellation. Refunds are not automatic from Ticket Source if a date is rescheduled, and in this case please email with the details and reference of your booking.

If this was online and was from See Tickets or Ticket Source; you can contact them here:

If you bought your ticket via the Tourist Information Centre or the Marine in person on a Wednesday morning please email

Any refunds must be processed within 30 days of the original show date. Booking fees may not be refunded, as this is at the discretion of the vendor.
