Customers will be able to enjoy 50% off all food and soft drinks that are ‘eaten in’ on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August.
The theatre’s Cafe Bar serves a selection of toasties, smoothies, milkshakes, cakes, pastries, hot and cold drinks.
The Cafe Bar reopened earlier this month and has followed guidance from the UK Government by putting in place measures to ensure that the Cafe Bar is COVID-secure. These include a one-way system throughout the building, with customers entering the building via their Jewry Street entrance, there are hand sanitiser stations at the entrance and exit and customers are asked to pay via contactless cards. The number of tables and chairs within the building has been reduced to aid social distancing and the external doors remain open at all times to allow good air circulation. Customers eating in will be asked to leave their contact details for track and trace purposes and the charity has also implemented an increased cleaning schedule. The cafe is also registered with the new COVID-19 industry standard ‘We’re Good to Go’.
The Cafe Bar has also been extended outside on to Tower Street, with their Hat Fair inspired garden, allowing customers to sit outside and enjoy the fine weather.
All profits from the Cafe Bar will go towards Play to the Crowd’s Survival Fundraising Appeal. The charity needs to raise £225,000 in order to survive the impact of Coronavirus.
