What is the capacity at Unity?

As of Thursday 21st October 2021 Unity will be returning to full capacity in line with the other venues across the region.

All staff will remain in face coverings and will need to provide a negative test before beginning their shift.

Though masks are not mandatory for audiences, we are still encouraging all visitors to continue to wear a face covering for the safety of all.

We will continue to maximise ventilation throughout the building.

How will I receive my ticket?

For our 2021 season, all tickets will be delivered as an email attachment.

Upon arrival at the venue, you will then show this email attachment to our Front of House team who will direct you to your seat. You may display your ticket on either a mobile device or as a printout.

Physical tickets will not be issued by Unity in 2021 to reduce the amount of paper being both printed and exchanged.

If you do not have an email address or require a specific seat for access purposes, please call our box office line and we can certainly make arrangements for you.

Are Refunds Available?

If Unity is required to close or an event is cancelled due to COVID-19 bookers will be contacted within 48 hours with the option to donate the ticket value, receive credit on their account to the value of their order or receive a full refund. If a refund is requested this will be processed within 14 days.

If the show continues as planned, tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded. The exception is if a booker or a member of the booker’s household is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If this is the case you must inform the Box Office with 2 hours notice.

Why is my seat unreserved?

When booking for an event at Unity, your ticket will be unreserved. This allows us to adapt to changing COVID regulations and ensure maximum safety for audience members.

It also allows us to provide a tailored, safe experience for those who require specific seating or the use of a hearing aid loop, BSL interpreter or Audio Description service as the best seating for these facilities can change from show to show.

Finally an unreserved auditorium allows us to offer a professional, digital version of the event through different camera positioning. This gives those unable to return to the theatre a high quality experience. Please be assured that audiences will not feature in these films.

When booking for an online event, if booking in advance of the performance dates, you will receive an email confirmation confirming your booking.

When the performance becomes available to watch you will then receive a unique viewing link and password to access the event.
