Welcome back!

Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with our booking and attendance guidelines in the 'Visiting our Venues' section below. These have been shaped so that everyone can have the best possible experience, whilst also protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of all of our guests, artists and staff.   

       

Booking your tickets 

For best availability, please book your tickets in advance online.  

You can also contact us via email at ticketing@horsecross.co.uk or give us a call on 01738 621031 (Mon - Fri 10am - 4pm) to speak to a member of our Ticketing Services team who will be happy to help.  

In town? Pop by the Box Office at Perth Theatre, Mon – Fri, 10am - 4pm, to book in-person.   

If you’re booking for more than one person, please make sure you have details for the whole group so we can make sure you’re seated together under one booking.    

Things to know before your visit  

The health and safety of our guests, artists and staff remains a top priority.   

Please continue to follow Scottish Government Covid-19 guidelines. Do not visit us if you have tested positive within the last 10 days or are required to isolate.    

Where possible we recommend and encourage that face coverings are still worn by those who are able to do so.   

If you have specific accessibility or health needs and require support during your visit, please let us know in advance so that we can assist when you’re here.   

Your arrival 

Doors to our venues open 60 minutes prior to the event start time.   

If you are attending in a group, arrive together so you can make the most of the pre-event buzz and enjoy some drinks and snacks.   

Your tickets will be checked on arrival. If you purchased online, please make sure you have a copy of your ticket on your phone or printed off… we can’t let you in without it! Alternatively, if you purchased a physical ticket, or have chosen to collect your ticket from Box Office, please have the ticket or booking confirmation available. A member of the Ticketing Services team will be available to help with any ticketing issues.  

Entry time to the auditorium will vary by show. 

While you're here

We want everyone to have the most enjoyable time with us, so please relax and make the most of your visit, whilst being respectful of your fellow guests and our staff.   

Please continue to make frequent use of our hand sanitiser stations. We keep our venues well ventilated (running our air handling systems at 10l of fresh air per person per second or more) in line with CIBSE and Scottish Government guidance for a healthy breathing environment. It can get a touch chilly, so you might want to bring a light layer. You’ll be able to purchase drinks and snacks at the bar using contact-less payment, which will be open before the performance and at the interval (when applicable).  

Our friendly staff are always on hand if you have any questions or problems while you’re here.  

After the show

We hope you get to see a favourite act or two, but unfortunately we need to maintain a strict divide between Front and Back of House and we can’t accept any gifts for performers.   

If you or any member of your party develop COVID-19 symptoms after visiting us, you must contact NHS Scotland without delay to arrange a test. They will advise you who you should contact and tell you how to send an alert via the Protect Scotland App.  

We want your feedback

We’d love to know how your visit went so we may send a follow up e-mail after your event. Please take a few minutes to let us know what we did well, and what we could do better.   

Enjoy your visit!

There are regular trains from Scotland's major cities. Perth railway station is located approximately 0.7 miles (1.1km) from the centre of Perth. A map showing the best route to walk can be found here. There is also a taxi rank located outside the station.

Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre are both well served by good bus connections. The venues are approximately 800m from Perth Bus Station on Leonard Street, and there are several bus stops nearby.   

There are a number of Stagecoach East services which link the centre of Perth and the surrounding area.

There is bicycle parking available at both Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre.

At Perth Theatre this can be found outside the Mill Street entrance.

There is both on-street and off-street parking on Mill Street where charges apply from 8am - 6pm Monday to Saturday. There are three disabled public car parking spaces directly opposite the main entrance to the concert hall but these tend to fill very quickly.

There is also a car park on Kinnoull Street which is operated by Smart Parking Car Parks (01738 440 933).

This 550-space multi-storey car park is open from 7am – midnight Monday to Saturday and 10am – midnight on Sundays. It is a pay-and-display car park meaning that the charge must be paid on arrival.

We have gone high-tech with a new system at both Perth Concert Hall & Perth Theatre for patrons who need a little extra help hearing our productions. You can now use your own headphones to access our audio streams or to Bluetooth directly to your hearing aid. This system is available in the Perth Theatre Main House and Joan Knight Studio, as well as in the Gannochy Trust Auditorium at Perth Concert Hall.

For more information on how the system works, check out our accessibility webpage or chat with one of our ticketing services or Visitor Experience team members.

All guide, hearing and assistance dogs are welcome in both our buildings.

We have booster seats for the little ones (available for Stalls-only seating in both venues) and the Perth Theatre Café provides highchairs and bottle warming. We’re breast feeding friendly and there are baby changing facilities for men and women to use throughout.

For further information, contact the Ticketing Services team on 01738 621031. You can also send us an email at ticketing@horsecross.co.uk

Who are they for?

The backpacks are designed for anyone living with autism, down syndrome, sensory processing disorder, anxiety & dementia. However, anyone who feels they would benefit from extra support in our buildings can borrow them.

How do people borrow them?

They ask for a sensory backpack at box office- these can be borrowed anytime; it doesn’t need to be for a performance.

Are they free?

Yes! The backpacks are completely free to borrow.

What is in the bags?

60 drawstring bags each containing:

  • fidget toy
  • stress reliever ball
  • reusable water bottle
  • ear plugs
  • venue pack
  • lanyard help card and strap 
  • cuddly toy

Additional Items

We do provide limited items that are more expensive to buy and therefore must be signed out and returned (weighted lap pads, ear defenders, sand timers and liquid timers).

Are they cleaned?

Yes! Every time a bag is used it will be cleaned before it goes back out.
