A great mix of shows for all tastes

In accordance with the Government’s Roadmap out of lockdown, at Step 3 from 17th May, Portsmouth Guildhall is able to re-open with a range of Covid secure measures in place.

We are ‘Good to Go’ having successfully met the Industry Standard Mark of Visit Britain and ‘See it Safely’ mark of UK Theatre which demonstrates that we are adhering to all Government and Public Health Guidance, have carried out all necessary risk assessments and have the required processes in place. See our Covid Safety page for full details of the measures we have put in place including contactless processes, temperature checks, social distancing, face coverings, track and trace and enhanced cleaning and sanitisation. These measures will be updated in line with changing Government guidance and any new measures implemented.

Your safety and that of our colleagues is our priority and we want you to have an enjoyable and stress-free experience with us!
