Book with confidence:
We want you to feel confident about booking in advance for the events at the Corn Exchange. It is very important that people displaying symptoms of COVID-19 do not come to the theatre so, if you are unwell with coronavirus symptoms or having to self-isolate, please phone the Box Office and we will arrange for the value of your tickets to be credited to your account or refunded, as long as you tell us in advance of the performance time.

Booking tickets:
Tickets must be booked in advance and we are asking customers to select an e-ticket if possible.
This means that your ticket can be scanned on arrival, reducing the need for contact with our staff when they check tickets. If you are unable to book an e-ticket, please speak to our Box Office team.

Bookings must be for no more than 6 individuals (or two households). Online bookings are limited to a maximum of 6 tickets. If you are making a booking for two households and require more than 6 tickets please contact the Box Office and they will assist with your booking.

In accordance with Government regulations, sectors including leisure, entertainment and hospitality are legally obliged to have a system in place to request and record contact details of their customers, visitors and staff. Anyone in your party aged 16 or over will be asked to scan the Test and Trace QR code or to record their contact details with us.

Social distancing:
We have limited the number of people admitted to each event. Last autumn we rebuilt our auditorium seating in order to maximise capacity whilst adhering to social distancing measures. This seating layout has more space between rows, the seats have individual arm rests, and each booking is separated using dividing Perspex screens. We have put our summer season on sale using this layout in order to ensure the events can take place under all circumstances. Should the government regulations change and social distancing is no longer a requirement we will contact all customers to discuss their booking with them and to inform them of any updated procedures.

Please remember to bring your face covering with you as visitors over the age of 11 are required to wear them in the building, unless you are exempt from wearing one, or if you are eating or drinking.

Social distancing:
Please ensure you leave a safe distance between yourself and other customers, staff members or volunteers when joining queues or moving around the building. 

Hand sanitiser:
Please use hand sanitiser on arrival and then regularly re-apply or wash your hands during your visit.


Visitors must wear a face mask while inside the building, including while watching a film. 

Tickets must be booked in advance and we ask customers to select an e-ticket if possible.
 This ticket will be scanned at a contactless scanning point on entry. You do not need to show a ticket for activities in the Learning Centre or The Base as they will have a list of those who have booked.

Making payments:
We will be asking customers to make contactless card payments where possible. Card machines will be wiped down after use if they have been used for chip and PIN.

We have increased and enhanced cleaning regimes in place. Common touch points will be cleaned regularly throughout the day. 

Using the lift:
If you need to use the lift, please only travel in it with members of your own household or social bubble. 

Using the toilet facilities:
Please wash your hands before and after you use the facilities. Please keep your distance and allow others sufficient space to pass, especially when entering or leaving. 

Leaving the building:
Please follow instructions from our team who will guide you on which exit to use. 

If you feel unwell:
If you feel unwell whilst visiting, please leave the building and return to your home. If you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms, please contact 119 to arrange a test.

    Priority booking opens to Members on Thursday 6 May. Tickets are available for general sale on Tuesday 11 May at 10am.

    We're excited to welcome young people and families to Victoria Park this summer for a class, course or workshop, as part of the Out of Doors Festival. You can find some important information below about what to expect from your visit.

    When you arrive at the park for your class, please look out for the Corn Exchange trike and banner. An area for the class will be designated with bunting. We ask that during the class, participants remain within this designated area. We cannot be held responsible for anything that happens outside of our designated class area.

    You do not need to show a physical ticket when you arrive at your class but the practitioner leading the class will be doing a register so you will need to know the surname you booked under.

    Since these are outdoor classes we ask that you dress for all weathers and provide your own sun-hats, sun cream, coats, jackets, scarves and umbrellas (it is an English summer after all!).

    If it is raining heavily on the day of your class, we will follow our Wet Weather plan. We may cancel class and will contact you to let you know either the evening before for a morning class, or during that morning if you have an afternoon class. Please make sure your contact details are up to date when you book. In the event that we have to cancel your class due to adverse weather, we will offer you a full refund. 

    Unfortunately, we are not able to provide toilets for this event.

    There are public toilets in Parkway shopping centre that you can use before your event starts, but please be aware that we are unable to let children and young people leave our sessions unattended.

    If you are bringing your child to a drop-off class and you think your child may need the bathroom during their class, please stay close by so you can take them yourself.

    First Aid
    Should you or your child require first aid during your class, please visit the Corn Exchange trike or speak to your practitioner. A Corn Exchange First Aider will be on hand either in the park or on call in the main Corn Exchange building.

    Other things to bring:
    Please bring a water bottle. 

    Our classes will be taking place on grass so please bring a picnic blanket/something waterproof to sit on.

    Unfortunately, we are unable to provide chairs. If you or a member of your household attending the class has mobility issues, we suggest you bring your own camping chair to sit on.

    We hope you enjoy our Out of Doors Festival!

    GG Wildlife Walks

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do

    This is a 2 - 2.5 hour wildlife walk experience in Streatley, along a route that was well populated last year with both Little and Tawny Owls.
    To hear the call of the different owls around us as we walk is really magical, and often we are lucky enough to see the Little Owls as they hunt the fields along a section of the walk.
    Steve, your guide, will share his knowledge about these beautiful birds - and Owls won't be all you see! There's also an array of other birds and wildlife on this route that we may be lucky enough to spot; sometimes Peregrines hunting, sometimes Sparrowhawks, plenty of Buzzards and Red Kites.... as well as the smaller British birds.
    Why not book on and join us?
