Measures introduced include enhanced cleaning, one-way systems, e-ticketing and multiple hand sanitiser stations. The safety of our audience, performers, volunteers and staff remain of utmost importance to us, and we will follow guidance meticulously.

To ensure your visit to the Maltings is safe and enjoyable, we’ve outlined some of the changes below and tried to answer any questions you may have. Please check back frequently for any updates.

Arrival & Your Visit

For shows, films and live performances our doors open 45 minutes to an hour prior to the start time but for day events such as markets and festivals, please do not arrive before the opening time, or the time stated on your ticket. Our friendly staff and volunteers will be on hand if you have any questions. When inside the building, we strongly encourage all customers, volunteers and staff to wear a face covering, respect social distancing and hygiene measures.

You must not attend the venue if you: believe you may be infected with COVID-19; have experienced symptoms in the last 14 days; have been in close proximity to anyone who has experienced symptoms in the last 14 days; or have been instructed to self-isolate.

All tickets and booking fees are non-refundable, but we have updated our booking policy in line with COVID-19. If we are required by any government guidance or restrictions to cancel a performance, tickets may be exchanged or refunded as set out in our terms and conditions. If you are unable to attend your event due to displaying symptoms, self-isolating or having to isolate, you must inform the box office 24hrs before your event. Email boxoffice@farnhammaltings.com with your full contact details and order number.


Do I need to wear a face covering?

Face coverings are strongly encouraged in all areas of the building. As per government guidance, from 30 November 2021, face coverings must be worn at indoor market settings.

What additional safety measures are you taking?

We will follow government guidance at all times. Transactions will be cashless and paperless where possible, with one–way systems, multiple hand sanitiser stations and enhanced cleaning processes in place throughout the venue. Our cleaning standards were already high before the pandemic, but will be enhanced by a cleaning programme designed to clean and sanitise high touch points within the building after each event.

Can I pay with cash?

If possible we ask that all payments are made by card.

Anything else?

At the end of your event, we ask you to help by either taking your rubbish home with you or putting it into our bins before you leave.

If you have any questions, feedback or concerns, please get in touch.
