This page is regularly updated. The last update was on Mon 4 Jan.

We are currently closed but we hope to be welcoming you back soon. We are COVID-secure. Below are the safety measures that we have put in place for when we can reopen our doors.

 The health and safety of our staff and visitors is very important to us. Rich Mix is a COVID-secure venue and we make sure to continually review all Government regulations and sector best practice.

Before you plan a trip to Rich Mix, whether for a film screening, workshop, or private event, please familiarise yourself with our health and safety measures and procedures in place, as well as FAQs specific to the nature of your trip.

Don’t forget you can also get in touch ahead of your visit if you have any other concerns, or let us know how we’re doing, by emailing feedback@richmix.org.uk.

If an event or cinema screening is cancelled or postponed due to coronavirus restrictions, we will always contact ticket holders as soon as possible.

CAN I BOOK ONLINE FOR THE CINEMA

Yes please! We’re encouraging our customers to book as much of their Rich Mix visit online as possible – from cinema tickets to drinks and snacks. E-tickets will be issued when you book in advance, making your entry that bit quicker, and all pre-ordered drinks and snacks will be available to pick up when you arrive. Find out more about our snack bundles on our offers page.

IS RICH MIX SAFE TO VISIT? 

We take the health and safety of our guests and our staff very seriously. We are following government safety guidance as well as advice from industry bodies. In order to stop our building from getting too busy, we are limiting event activity each day. We have also increased cleaning throughout the building. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DEVELOP CORONAVIRUS SYMPTOMS AFTER BOOKING A TICKET FOR AN EVENT OR SCREENING

If you have symptoms of coronavirus and notify us ahead of an event or screening or if we need to turn you away because your temperature is too high, we will credit your account or refund you the ticket price. Please email boxoffice@richmix.org.uk to arrange this. Do not enter the building if you have symptoms or should be self-isolating. Follow NHS advice.

WILL THERE BE SOCIAL DISTANCING WHEN I GET INTO THE BUILDING? 

Yes – please keep a safe distance from anyone who is not in your household or support bubble. In our cinema screens, we have reduced the number of seats available which means you will be able to sit with up to two other members of your family or social bubble (where there is availability). Seating in our screens is in pairs or threes, with a 2 metre gap between each group. We will ensure all events across all spaces in the building implement social distancing at 2 metres. When this is not possible, at least 1 metre of distance must apply, where mitigating factors, such as mask wearing, are enforced. If we notice guidance is not being followed our staff are within their right to ask you to leave the building.

Please note all spaces, seats and surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned between all events and screenings. 

DO I HAVE TO WEAR A MASK IF DELIVERING OR PARTICIPATING IN A FAMILY ACTIVITY?

It is not necessary for anyone delivering, or taking part in a participatory activity to wear a face covering / mask during the sessions. Visitors can remove their face covering when entering the room where the session is taking place. Visitors will need to replace the face covering or mask when they leave the session and re-enter the public areas.

CAN I STOP BY FOR A DRINK BEFORE OR AFTER MY FILM?

We are trialling a new route through The Stage (our live performance space) where we will be providing table service and customers can relax in an environment with plenty of space and enjoy a drink at a social distance. Our bar stocks beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks from global and local favourites, as well as sweet and savoury snacks. Our team members will have masks. 

DO YOU HAVE TOILET FACILITIES AVAILABLE ? 

Yes we do – these will be used one person at a time, and when you visit please wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds after using. Dry your hands with the paper towels provided. 

AT THE BOX OFFICE 

  • To save time and unlock many deals on tickets, snacks and drinks it is best if you book for the cinema in advance, online.  
  • If you are booking in–person you will be asked for your name and phone number as part of the Government’s Test and Trace programme and be required to check-in to the NHS Covid-19 App. Sharing contact details with the NHS, where requested, can help to identify people who may have been exposed to the virus. The collected data will be kept securely, only be held for 21 days and will only be used where necessary.
  • Our team members at the box office will be behind screens. 
  • Customers may book for a maximum of six at the moment, for one household only. In the cinema, you will be sat in twos or threes, at a distance from other bookings. If you would like to sit together, the only way of ensuring this is to book our Private Screen experience (see Special Offers below).
