Show scheduled for Trafford Centre

 On May 13th BeyondTheatre will create an incredible live event that will see Europe’s largest marquee,68,000sq. ft, erected to create a theatre experience the UK hasn’t seen before. It will provide a once in a life-time family entertainment experience for all to enjoy, with the opportunity to preview two London musicals.

With 30 live shows, entertaining 20,000 people over four weeks, The DriveINSIDE Theatre has a socially distanced capacity of 800, with the potential to grow to 5,600 as social distance restrictions are relaxed. Undercover, but with a part open surround, this model is COVID safe even in areas that require Level 3 C19 compliances.

The venue has been verified as Covid-secure up to and including Tier 3 because:

–          Social distancing is maintained.

–          Plenty of fresh air is circulating due to the exposed sides of the giant marquee (Protects performers and audience from the weather)

–          Audience must leave their vehicle from the driver’s side, creating a barrier between each socially distanced area  

–          A waiter to bonnet service is available for food and drinks.

Paul Levin, the leader of Beyond Theatre’s creative team, had this to say: “The success of conventional theatre venues is often determined by a number of factors outside of an operator’s control, such as a change in the surrounding area’s demographic, the arrival of new competition, maintenance costs, and more recently a need to be able to comply with Coronavirus restrictions. The DriveINSIDE Theatre provides a solution. We can evaluate a demand in a specific area, negotiate land rental and bring entertainment experiences to where we feel that there is a demand. Bricks and mortar theatres have been around since the 6th century BC, now is the time for something new!”

The demand for immersive entertainment is growing and Beyond Theatre is already recognised as a producer of unique entertainment experiences that begin the moment you enter the venue. As The DriveINSIDE Theatre moves around the country, more and more people will be able to experience and enjoy an immersive entertainment experience made for the new world we find ourselves living in.
