With audience and performer safety at the top of our agenda, Warren on the Beach have built a new venue that offers the thrill of live entertainment within a Covid-secure environment.


The Oil Shed, is constructed from chequered, repurposed oil drums allowing free-flowing ventilation around the theatre. Audiences will be seated with their own group at a safe distance from others so they can enjoy comedy, cabaret and theatre in comfort.

Warren on the Beach will also contain bars serving socially distanced table-service drinks - open to both ticket holders and the public. Ticket holders will be offered pre and post-show table reservations whilst those without tickets will be welcome to visit on a walk-up basis. 

The festival site itself will be managed by a one-way system with a limited capacity and social distancing makers, plus there will sanitizer readily available for all attendees. All visitors will be asked to Track & Trace when entering each of the bars and venues and all staff members will be tested every day.

We are asking everyone to please follow these simple rules for everybody's safety:

- Do not come to The Warren if you have any COVID symptoms (including, but not limited to, a new continuous cough, high temperature, loss of sense of smell/taste). If you think you have symptoms, please contact NHS 111.

- Please wear a face mask / face covering at all times when queuing, entering and exiting the venue, and when not sat at your table (especially when visiting the toilets) – this is to protect yourself and others.

- Please try to be mindful of others and try to keep a distance between yourself and people outside your group. Although a distance of at least 1.5m between you and other groups of customers may not always be possible, please do try to keep as much space as possible at all times.

- Please follow the instructions of staff and any signage around the venue; these are always to help you (and others around you) stay safe.

- Please remember to disinfect your hands regularly – hand sanitiser will be available all around the venue.

- It goes without saying that you must follow all government restrictions that are in place at all times whilst visiting The Warren.


Stay safe, and we can't wait to see you!
