We are COVID Safe
We are extremely pleased to inform our patrons of the removal of most Government COVID-19 restrictions, from 11.59pm, Friday April 22.
The key points, relevant to theatre patrons and visitors to Bendigo Venues & Events:
- Patrons will no longer be required to show their vaccination status before entering our venues.
- The requirement for staff and patrons to check-in using the Service Victoria app will end.
- Face masks will no longer be required in our venues, however they are a requirement if you are a close contact of a positive case, and are strongly recommended when you can’t physically distance.
The team at Bendigo Venues & Events looks forward to welcoming patrons to performances with eased restrictions.
We would also like to thank our patrons for supporting our COVID Safe plan and our shared efforts in providing an environment where risk is minimised and performances can be fully enjoyed and appreciated.
Again, sincere thanks – we look forward to seeing you at the theatre!
Our COVID Safe measures include:
While the box office and ticket buying process remains unchanged, please note that our ticketing terms and conditions have changed to better support increased flexibility required for the venue and ticket-buyer due to COVID-19. The Gotix box office is open for phone and in-person counter enquiries 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday on 03 5434 6100. Online box office services are available at all times at gotix.com.au.
Please read the information on your ticket carefully. It will include the performance date and time, as well as indicating the door you must access the auditorium. Please note that additional information could be sent separately to ticket holders via phone, email or SMS message, indicating times we will be allowing access to foyers and/or auditoriums, specific entry and exit doors you might need to use, and other details relating to our COVID Safe Plan.
We have developed our COVID Safe Plan, we have trained our staff and we are ready (and excited!) to welcome you to our theatres and venues. We rely on your support and cooperation to maintain a protected environment and remind all visitors to comply with signage and staff directions at all times.
1. Foyer bars will be open prior to the performance and during interval.
2. Wearing face masks is no longer mandatory for entertainment venue patrons, performers, or workers, except for events of over 30,000 people.
3. Cloaking services will not be available. We ask that you do not bring large or bulky items to the theatre
The team at Bendigo Venues & Events looks forward to welcoming you to the theatre!
Practice physical distancing
In foyers and while entering and exiting venues, please maintain a distance of 1.5m with other patrons.
Practise good hygiene
Hand sanitisation stations are placed in prominent locations in the foyers of our venues. We encourage theatre patrons to practise good personal hygiene at all times.
We are undertaking additional cleaning and disinfecting of theatres and foyers before, during and after performances
We expect theatre patrons arriving at our venues are well and able to comply with all safety measures in our COVID Safe Plan. If you’re experiencing any COVID symptoms, even if they are very mild, you must remain at home and contact the box office to arrange a refund or exchange. BV&E staff may require theatre patrons to leave the auditorium and/or the venue at any time, should it be determined by management that a patron appears unwell and/or the comfort of other theatre patrons is negatively affected. (A full refund will be provided in these circumstances.)
