Safety and security is the utmost priority for Bard in the Yard.

The team has spent endless hours working out the best way to ensure the safety of both the audience and the artists, and we will be reviewing the latest Government guidelines on a daily basis and will adapt the project accordingly as and when necessary to ensure the collective safety of everyone involved.

Please read through our safety rules and guidelines below before making a booking.

For more information on the Government guidelines on socialising with those outside of your household, please follow the link to the Government website here.

Should you have any other questions regarding our safety measures, please contact our producer Charlie Mackellar.


Safety Guidance

  • We are required to adhere to Government guidelines regarding the number of people gathering in one area. 

  • All members of the audience as well as our Bard are required to adhere to the required minimum of 2 metres social distancing policy at all times. Our Bards are all experienced professional actors, and will endeavour to be much further away from you most of the time, as they can project their voice.

  • Our Bard will turn up to your booking wearing a mask or a face covering. They will perform the show unmasked and then may put the mask or face covering back on after the performance.

  • We ask you to adhere to all Government policies: wash your hands thoroughly before and after the performance, and please wear a mask if you wish to do so.

  • Despite all these measures, we discourage you from making a booking if a member of your household is highly at risk of Covid-19. Our priority is safety for all.
