As published in the youtube page by Gabriel Melo Life: London Palladium defends safety measures after claims it was ‘packed’ LW theatres insisted all guidelines were carefully followed and that the venue was at only 50 per cent capacity By Victoria Ward 13 October 2020 • 6:52pm The audience at the London Palladium  The London Palladium has been forced to defend its Covid safety measures after photographs of an audience apparently crammed into the auditorium sparked criticism.  Pictures taken at events held on Sunday and Monday evening appeared to show crowded stalls with little social distancing and only the odd empty seat.  Critic Mark Shenton, who attended one of the events, questioned how safe Sunday night’s event could have been, stating that he believed \”social distancing was not complied with.”  “Seating, at least in stalls, was in every single row and only distanced by leaving a single free seat between parties,” he said.  “Seating wasn’t even staggered — centre aisles had people on end seats of every row. So I’m not sure this was really safe.  “I didn’t have my tape measure with me last night, but I’d like to see proof that there was 1 metre distance between myself and the two women seated directly in front of me (who kept their masks off for much of the show to eat Crisps!)”  Mr Shenton’s photographs, widely circulated on social media, prompted questions about why such numbers were allowed in theatres but not football stadiums or at funerals.

I’m completely bemused.”  LW theatres, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s company, insisted that a huge amount of effort had gone into ensuring Sunday evening’s musical, Songs For A New World, and a Q\u0026A with football manager Arsene Wenger on Monday, were fully Covid compliant.  A spokesman insisted that the venue was operating at 50 per cent capacity and that seats were removed, each household bubble was seated at least one metre apart, temperatures were checked at the door and that the audiences were told to wear masks at all times when not eating or drinking.  “The London Palladium was not ‘packed’ last night for An Evening with Arsène Wenger. We were operating at 50 per cent capacity,\” he said.  “This is fully in line with, and indeed goes further than, the Government’s current Stage 4 guidance for the reopening of theatres,” he said.  “With the support of public health officials and Westminster Council, social distancing of 1m distance plus safety mitigations – for example mandatory face coverings – is in place between each customer bubble across The London Palladium.” Related Topics London Palladium, Coronavirus Twitter Icon Facebook Icon WhatsApp Icon Email Icon Comment speech bubble The Telegraph values your comments but kindly requests all posts are on topic, constructive and respectful.
