Getting Here - Birmingham Rep

Keeping safe

Due to the UK's current level of heightened security we would like to ask that you play your part in ensuring that we all remain safe. We have placed some restrictions on public access to our foyers and introduced bag searches.

  • Avoid bringing large bags to the theatre as they will not be permitted into any performance spaces.
  • All bags above the size of a small handbag must be checked into the cloakroom at a charge £2 per item.
  • Any sharp objects will not be allowed into the auditoriums.
  • Anyone refusing a bag search will not be admitted and no refund will be given.
  • Aim to arrive a little earlier than previously as these measures will inevitably slow your progress.
  • If you see anything suspicious, report it to a member of staff immediately.
  • Finally, please be patient with REP staff here, we need to work with you to ensure we all remain safe.

Please note: Construction of Birmingham's most anticipated new development scheme, the transformation of 17 acres at Paradise Circus in the heart of the city centre, has begun. The £500m development will include major demolition, significant infrastructure changes and enhancements to the public realm, including improvements to Chamberlain Square and the development will now be known simply as 'Paradise'.
