The CSO is working closely with Llewellyn Hall to deliver a COVID-safe concert experience for musicians, staff and patrons. Live at Llewellyn will be delivered in line with ACT Government restrictions, including requirements related to audience capacity, socially distanced seating and cleaning protocols.

  • The audience will be capped at 50% of the Hall’s capacity for each performance.
  • To maintain social distancing, seats have been removed to create a centre aisle and every second seat will not be sold. 
  • Tickets must be visible on entry to allow for contactless ticket validation.
  • Doors to Llewellyn Hall will open early (at 6pm) to reduce queuing in the foyer.
  • Patrons will be required to leave immediately after the concert (no mingling in the foyer).
  • High touch points will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.
  • Cloaking will not be provided.
  • Patrons are encouraged to use the Check In CBR app as an additional contact tracing method (QR codes are present on entry doors).

We encourage all our patrons to stay informed and follow ACT Health guidance.
