Volunteer Incentive Program
If you would like to be more involved in the Empire Theatre's activities, you can join the Friends' volunteer workforce. All Friends volunteers receive Volunteer Incentive Program Points (VIPP) for any duty performed. These VIPs can be traded for tickets to selected shows.
Volunteer duties include:
Social distancing measures have been put in place across the venue including queue controls. All patrons are asked to maintain the adequate distance from other guests outside their group.
Seats have been allocated to each booking group allowing adequate social distancing between each group. It is important you sit in your allocated seat.
We have increased our hygiene facilities. We have installed hand sanitising stations throughout the theatre and enhanced cleaning measures during and between shows, including high-frequency touchpoints.
Contactless payment is the preferred method of payment in both the Ticket Office and Bar Areas
All patrons are required to provide name, address, phone and email before each performance.
All staff and patrons are encouraged to monitor their own health and stay home if they are feeling unwell or have a temperature.
We encourage and support the use of the COVID Safe App.
