See it Safely Toolkit

The See It Safely Toolkit

UK Theatre and SOLT have launched the See It Safely toolkit to support theatres as they reopen and to instil audience confidence.

By signing up to the toolkit, venues can show audiences that they are compliant with the latest government guidelines. DCMS are encouraging the roll out of this scheme across the wider live events sector, and the Federation of Scottish Theatre will be administering and promoting the campaign once the Scottish Government gives the go-ahead that theatres can safely reopen.

Phill Brown (our Head of Risk and Safety) is on hand to offer members ongoing support and advice on health and safety issues, and will share updated guidelines as necessary.

Please complete this online application to be granted use of the See it Safely toolkit.

This video demonstrates the safety measures which theatres will be putting in place. The video is animated and has a voiceover so it is easy for us to create a new version if guidance changes.

Accessible versions of the video will be available – one is BSL interpreted and one is audio described.

The video features a voiceover from Rachel Tucker, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, John Owen-Jones and Jennifer Tierney. The four different accents represent the four UK nations.
