See it Safely Toolkit

The See It Safely Toolkit

UK Theatre and SOLT launched the See It Safely toolkit to support theatres as they reopened to instil audience confidence.

By signing up to the toolkit, venues showed audiences that they were compliant with the latest government guidelines. DCMS encouraged the roll out of this scheme across the wider live events sector, and the Federation of Scottish Theatre administered and promoted the campaign once the Scottish Government gace the go-ahead that theatres could safely reopen.

Phill Brown (our Head of Risk and Safety) was on hand to offer members ongoing support and advice on health and safety issues, and shared updated guidelines when necessary.

The See It Safely mark could be added to show artwork and displayed in venues.

  • SOLT and UK Theatre granted a license for you to use the mark
  • Venues had to complete an online compliancy form before using
  • Welsh language versions were available.

This video demonstrates the safety measures which theatres put in place. The video is animated and has a voiceover so it is easy for us to create a new version if guidance changes.

Accessible versions of the video will be available – one is BSL interpreted and one is audio described.

The video features a voiceover from Rachel Tucker, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, John Owen-Jones and Jennifer Tierney. The four different accents represent the four UK nations.
