We have developed our theatre’s security policies in accordance with the advice given to managers of public spaces by Kent Police and the National Counter Terrorism Office. These policies are regularly reviewed by our management team.
Through our industry body and Kent Police, we are in close communication with the National Counter Terrorism Office. Our staff are trained to monitor and report suspicious activity and in the operational procedures we’ve been advised to put in place to ensure the safety of our audiences.
When the national threat level is raised to Critical, we have a set of heightened procedures that are implemented immediately. These include controlling access to the theatre, Box Office and The Green Room and employing security staff fully licensed by the Security Industry Authority who are authorised to carry out bag checks.
