Just in: Covent Garden orders unprecedented securitymain
As you will soon be attending a performance or event at the Royal Opera House we would like to draw your attention to some changes to our security measures in light of the tragic events in Manchester and the raised UK security threat level.
You will notice an increased security presence at the Royal Opera House and we will take time to search all bags on entry. You can help us to make sure that this has as little impact on your visit as possible by doing the following:
Please plan your journey and arrive as early as possible.
Please avoid bringing any bags with you.
If a bag is absolutely necessary, no bag larger than a small handbag please.
If you do have large bags we kindly ask you to make alternative arrangements for their storage.
Please be patient with our staff as they check you into the building.
Your safety is paramount to us and your understanding greatly appreciated as we go through this difficult time.
We look forward to seeing you at the Royal Opera House for what will still be a wonderful experience.
