Winter Gardens Blackpool have officially reopened to the public with a Safe and Sound campaign to reassure visitors that they are ready to return to live.
The venue have been awarded the Visit England “We’re good to go” industry standard which means that Winter Gardens Blackpool meets the Government and Public Health Guidance on COVID-19 measures that will keep fans safe when they visit.
As part of these measures, some seated shows are utilising Ticketmaster’s Fan Group ticket type, which allows fan to pick from socially distanced blocks of seats on an interactive seating map.
In addition the venue has gone cashless and made pre-packaged food and drink available to pre-order. They have made a commitment to frequent thorough cleaning and PPE, have sanitary stations available throughout the venue and will run temperature checks on fans. In addition fans are asked to wear face masks have the opportunity to give contact details for non-ticketed events in accordance with Track & Trace.
To manage the flow of people in the venue they have adopted a one way system, and ask fans to arrive no more than 30 minutes before a show start time.
“We are delighted to be welcoming audiences back to the Venue after so many months of enforced closure due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. The wellbeing and safety of our guests and employees is of paramount importance to us and the use of the Ticketmaster’s interactive seating plan allows audience members to choose their seats whilst complying with social distancing implications. We have also implemented a number of other protocols to ensure that the venue remains COVID secure and guests can visit with confidence.”Michael Williams, Managing Director – Winter Gardens Blackpool
