Covid-Secure Productions at The QMT

We are pleased to open our doors to the public again and  have worked hard to make adjustments to the QMT and make the venue Covid-secure, carefully following government guidelines for performing arts as they apply to indoor performances. Here are just a few key changes that will keep you safe and comfortable during your visit.

In continuing to keep our audiences safe, new air-cleaning equipment has been installed in our auditoriums. So, while watching our shows you can be confident that the air around you will be continually cleaned of dust particles and any bacteria.
