The Albert Hall has REOPENED! It’s been a long 16 months, but finally the doors are open again!

The health and well-being of our patrons, volunteers, and performers is our top priority, and we will be doing our best to ensure everyone is kept safe. Therefore, there are several measures that will be in place until further notice.

The following measures are remaining in place:

  • NHS COVID Pass is required by all attendees, 18+
  • Hand Sanitizer points
  • Track and Trace contact details taken from all attendees
  • Masks to be worn by all attendees (Excluding those with an exemption), at all times unless eating, or drinking
  • Increased cleaning

An NHS COVID Pass is now required to attend events at The Albert Hall, and these will remain in place until further notice.


COVID Pass Information

All visitors to the venue will be required to provide either a valid COVID Pass or proof of a negative lateral flow test (LFT) within the 48 hours preceding the event. This applies to anyone over the age of 18.

A Covid Pass allows you to provide proof of any of following:

  • That you are double vaccinated against Covid 19
  • That you have received a negative Lateral Flow Test result within the past 48 hours
  • That you have natural immunity against Covid 19

A Covid Pass (or proof of your Covid status) can be done in any of the following ways:

  • Digital solution such as the NHS Covid Pass
  • A paper-based certification of vaccination (e.g NHS Covid Pass Letter)
  • Confirmation of a negative test result by text or email.
  • We cannot accept vaccine cards issued at vaccination centres as proof of vaccination.

The easiest way to to prove your Covid status would be to download the NHS Covid Pass. It can be accessed via a smartphone, tablet or computer, which will produce a 2D machine readable barcode that can be:

  • Opened and shown on a phone
  • Downloaded as a PDF download that can be shown on a smartphone, tablet screen or printed by a customer

Further information on how to download the Covid pass or prove your vaccination status can be found here: https://gov.wales/nhs-covid-pass-prove-your-vaccination…

If you have a smartphone and want to download the pass into your digital wallet then it will be quicker to do the whole process on your phone.

Make sure you follow through on the full verification process as this increases the amount of time the Pass remains valid.

Keep an eye on the expiry date. If it is nearly expired simply log into the link above again, and as long as your are double vaccinated it will automatically increase the validation period for your pass.

For those who are double vaccinated and have done the full verification process for the Pass you will only need to update the validation period once a month. it only takes a minute and is hassle free.
