Extra safety measures for the concert at Macclesfield Heritage Centre on Saturday 25 September 2021

The Northern Chamber Orchestra is aware that many of our audience are still concerned about COVID-19. Therefore, we are putting extra safety measures in place for the above concert. These are in addition to the general safety measures listed below.

We request that members of the audience provide assurance of negative COVID-19 status on entry to the building in one of the following ways:

  • Evidence of double vaccination (by your NHS COVID pass on the NHS app or your vaccination card)
  • A negative PCR or Lateral Flow Test within the last 48 hours
  • Evidence of infection and recovery from COVID-19 within the last six months.

To provide sufficient time for checking, we will again be staggering arrival times by reference to seating areas and will email details to you in the days prior to the performance. We thank you for your understanding.
