Following the announcement that England will be placed in lockdown, the Lantern Arts Centre will not be open for performances from 16th December 2020.


The LAC will largely remain closed throughout lockdown.  There are some support activities / bookings that are able to take place at the LAC during Lockdown restrictions - please contact us for more details if you are unsure.

When we re-open - What you need to know before visiting us or booking tickets:

Covid 19 Safety Measures 
75% seating removed to ensure social distancing | Seating in household bubbles | Increased cleaning and hygiene |  Face coverings worn by audience & staff | Large auditorium | One way systems | Good ventilation.

Various changes have been made to ensure that you stay safe whilst you are with us.

  1. We have taken steps to control the movement around the building including clearer signage and a one way system in the Auditorium. This is to ensure social distancing guidance is followed.

  2. Our cleaning and hygiene processes have also been adapted including more regular cleaning, hand sanitiser for you to use as you enter the building and antibacterial hand soap in the toilets.

  3. In accordance with current guidelines we ask that you wear face masks whilst in the building and watching the screened performances. You will be able to let us know if there is a medical reason why you cannot wear one.


We will be following social distancing guidelines in the auditorium. If your group are all from the same household we can move your seats together. You will be asked this when you book online. So...

  • Maximum of 6 tickets per booking.

  • You will not be able to choose your seats during the booking process

  • We will allocate seats for you after you have bought your tickets 

  • Some seats will need to be socially distanced and others may be family members seated together.


Unfortunately will not be selling refreshments whilst you are with us. We are happy for you to bring your own drinks and snacks, but please note that no alcohol is allowed in the building. We kindly ask that you take all your rubbish with you when you leave.


We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to the Lantern Arts Centre!
