Visiting the Rondo – Current Information

Although Covid restrictions are going away, things aren’t quite back to normal: so please have a quick read, and see what you need to know.

We believe that we have a responsibility to make the Rondo as safe as possible for our staff, our performers and above all our lovely audiences. So, we’ve made a few changes to the way we do things.

We are fully open – but rest assured, we’ll still be mindful of operating as safely as possible.

The box office will be selling tickets on the door, but payment will be by card only – you can also book tickets via our website before the show starts, and we encourage you to do this to avoid prolonged contact with box office staff.

Please, please, please wear a face mask if you can to protect those around you – we are a very small organisation, and if any of our staff were to contract Covid, we would find it nearly impossible to stay open. This goes double for the cast – a positive Covid test in the cast could mean the show having to close, causing massive financial difficulty for all.

All cast and staff are self-testing on a regular basis to keep everybody as safe as possible.

The bar will be open, but payment will be by card only. We won’t be accepting cash for the foreseeable future.

Please note that we cannot give refunds for any reason other than the cancellation of a performance. We strongly suggest that you purchase the Refund Protection insurance offered at the checkout when you buy your tickets. You can find more information here, including instructions on how to claim.

Thank you for bearing with us, and supporting the Rondo during what has been a frustrating, difficult and worrying time.

In the meantime, stay safe, be well – and check out our website for full details of what we’ve got coming up.

Above all, look after yourselves!


The Rondo Team

Getting here

Our full address is: Rondo Theatre, St. Saviours Rd, Bath BA1 6RT

From Bath City Centre, take the A4 London Road towards Chippenham, passing Morrisons on your right, you will then pass through a pedestrian crossing. Take the left turn into St Saviour’s Road. Go past the church and The Rondo is a few hundred metres on the left next to the newsagents.

From A46 (Batheaston By-pass) and from Chippenham: at the roundabout at the end of the A46 take the A4 (London Road) towards Bath. On joining the London Road, go through the first set of traffic lights. Then pass through the pelican crossing and take the first turning on the right (Beaufort Place at Rondo sign). Go to the end of this road and turn right at the junction and The Rondo is on the left.

Bus Services: First Bus Number 7 is a regular service from the bus station to Larkhall. Also the number 3 stops 5 minutes walk away on the London Road, as do the Chippenham and Devizes buses.


Unfortunately the Rondo does not have its own car park. There is on-street parking which is free after 7pm, but we recommend that you allow plenty of time for finding a space.


Here at the Rondo we aim to be as welcoming and accommodating as possible. If you have any questions or concerns which are not addressed by the following information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us directly.

The theatre is equipped with an accessible toilet and there are no steps to access the foyer, auditorium or bar area.

The front row (Row A) is on the flat, but each subsequent row is accessible by a shallow step. We also have a staircase at the back of the seats if you require an easy way to leave during the show, but please note that these steps are steep.

Our seats have a central aisle, so seat numbers 5 and 6 in each row are aisle seats. Please note that seat numbers 1 and 11 are located against the wall. Our seats are approximately 44cm wide, with leg room of around 25cm from the front edge of the seat to the back of the seat in front. Seats have fixed armrests, which cannot be removed. Row E gives slightly more leg room, and Row A has no seats directly in front, so has the best space for leg room (although for high selling comedy shows, we may place a row of plastic chairs in front of the front row of fixed seating).

If you would like to book a wheelchair space, just click on ‘Book Tickets’ as normal and you will be directed to the right seats to select for wheelchair users. Seats A9 – A11 are usually reserved for one wheelchair user and one free companion – just select seat A11 & all 3 seats will be held for your use.

If you have any questions about accessibility, feel free to email us:
