Seating and Social Distancing
Barossa Arts Centre is committed to keeping its patrons and employees safe during the effects of COVID-19.
A COVID-SAFE Plan has been implemented and has directed us to ensure the following the maximum number of members of the public per separate room or outdoor area must not exceed 1 person per 2 square metres of publicly accessible space. This therefore has limited the capacity of the Brenton Langbein Theatre to allow for adequate protection of patrons and staff.
Performances that are currently listed on Coming Events at Barossa Arts Centre will go ahead and in accordance with Government advice about venue capacity and density ratios.
To comply with socially distanced seating requirements, ushers in the venue on the night will direct patrons to sit in alternate, socially distanced seats which may differ from the seats printed on your tickets.
You will be advised about any COVID Safe requirements relating to to the performance prior to being seated.
I want to sit next to my family and friends. Will I be allowed?
For some events, tickets were sold prior to the need for social distancing, these events will be socially distanced on the day of the performance. All events in the theatre will follow the guidelines of SA Health to protect patrons and staff as much as possible.
