FAQs:

Are masks required when visiting Summerhall?

Masks are no longer required by law in Scotland, and we will not be enforcing mandatory mask-wearing at Summerhall. However, for the safety of our staff, performers and customers, we would appreciate if you could wear a mask while indoors.

Do I need to bring a negative test result to attend an event at Summerhall?

We do not require customers to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test to attend events, however we do recommend that you take a lateral flow test within 24 hours prior to the show, for the safety of our staff, performers, and other customers.

If you receive a positive test result before your show, do not attend your show, and contact your point of purchase as early as possible.

Do I need a vaccine certificate to visit Summerhall?

Vaccine certification is no longer a legal requirement in Scotland, however businesses and event organisers are able to implement vaccine certification as a way to ensure the safety of customers, staff, and performers.

The majority of our events do not require vaccine certification. If Summerhall (or an external event organiser basing their event at Summerhall) choses to require vaccine certification at a particular event, this will be communicated with ticket holders as early as possible in advance.

Please check individual event listings ahead of your visit for up to date information.

Vaccine certification is not required for visiting our visual art exhibitions, The Royal Dick or The Gallery Bar.

How do I access my vaccine certification?

Proof of vaccination can be accessed via the NHS Scotland COVID Status app, or via NHS Inform.

More information can be found on the Scottish Government website.

What if I become ill before the performance?

If you begin to show symptoms of Covid-19 or are required to isolate before the show, please contact your point of purchase as early as possible. For tickets booked via Summerhall directly, please contact info@summerhall.co.uk

If you are showing symptoms of Covid-19, receive a positive test result, or are required to self isolate, do not attend the event.

Are events socially-distanced?

The majority of our events are now undistanced. Please check individual event listings for the most up to date information. If no information on distancing is provided for an event, it is likely to be undistanced.

What measures are in place to ensure the safety of visitors to Summerhall?

  • Recommended mask-wearing for staff and audience members
  • Regular deep cleaning by Summerhall staff and professional cleaning company Daybreak
