The Radlett Centre, which has been closed to the public since March 2020, is finally set to reopen on Monday, May 17.
The venue’s general manager, Greg Dexter, said staff are “really thrilled” for the grand reopening, with plenty of shows and events lined up over the coming months.
Mr Dexter explained how the centre will remain in line with COVID-19 regulations.
He said: “For the first couple of months, we will operate on a socially distanced basis and the auditorium will be in cabaret style layout [as pictured].
“All safety measures will be in place to ensure that everything is COVID-safe and customers can attend in confidence.
“Tables may be booked to facilitate the number in each party to ensure that bubbles are maintained, and one-way systems, mask wearing and hand sanitising will all be in place.
“Our socially distanced shows include the legendary singer, Elaine Delmar, ahead of her appearance at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club a week later, some lovely children’s shows such as Teddy Bear’s Picnic, Captain Calamity and Peter Pan, and a wonderful show called The WestEnders, which includes West End artists singing the most popular songs from the shows.
“From September onwards, our seating will revert to the full capacity and we have many great shows already on sale for that period and all details are on our website.
“We really appreciate all the support we have had from our customers and we can’t wait to welcome them back.”
