Information for Schools

Our current season features the following shows that are Perfect for Schools.

Planning your visit

The Bridge House Theatre is part of Warwick School, who have their own child protection policy, public liability insurance, and risk assessments for all spaces and activities. As part of these risk assessments, we are reliant on schools providing the following:

  • Adult supervision (1 adult to 10 students), with a minimum of 2 adults to be with the group at all times.
  • Medical or First Aid provision for all students, including the means to administer specialised care for those with specific medical needs.
  • Individual risk assessments for your group.

We also offer ice cream pre-orders for school groups. Please contact Box Office for more information.

Car Parking: During the construction work on site, our parking facilities are limited. Please visit our dedicated parking page for more information.

When You Arrive

  • Please arrive at least 30 minutes before the performance begins in order to collect your tickets from the Box Office and to give your group enough time to use the facilities and get to their seats.
  • Please make sure each member of your group has a ticket before entering the auditorium. We cannot admit anyone inside the auditorium without a ticket. We also advise that you keep a list of seat numbers and who each seat is allocated to.
  • Please note that for some performances latecomers will not be admitted. Latecomers or those wanting to be re-admitted to other performances cannot be guaranteed entry until a convenient break in the performance, and may not be sat in their original seat.

During the Show

  • Please remind your group that any mobile phones, iPods and other electronic devices need to be switched off.
  • The use of recording equipment is strictly prohibited in the auditorium. This includes cameras, video camcorders and mobile phone cameras. If used, Front of House staff may remove the item and return it at the end of the performance.
  • We ask that no crisps or ‘noisy’ refreshments, wrapped sweets, glass or crockery are brought into the auditorium. Theatre staff can provide you with plastic cups for drinks and napkins/paper cups for food.
  • If a performance includes an interval, it usually lasts between 15 – 20 minutes.

Talks & Workshops

Shows with the ‘Chatback’ icon feature a post-show Q&A session. These are usually chaired by Warwick School’s Head of Drama Mike Perry, and give audiences the opportunity to talk to the cast and creatives about the performance they’ve just seen.
