Covid-19 measures in place

Please read all of the following information around Covid-19 measures in place at The Platform before purchasing a ticket.

After consultation with the council’s public protection team, we have decided the best way we can protect each other is for customers to each provide an NHS Covid Pass, as recommended by the Government. It is now mandatory for face coverings to be worn at all times when inside the venue unless you are eating or drinking, or you are exempt.

To be eligible for an NHS Covid Pass, you need either:

  1. To be fully vaccinated with a Covid-19 vaccine used in the UK
  2. A negative PCR test or rapid lateral flow test within the past 48 hours
  3. Positive PCR test within the past 6 months

Please read the full details here before purchasing a ticket.
