Packed with music, comedy and fun

It’s never too early for a Liverpool Royal Court Selection Box which this year will be a mix of comedy and music featuring a host of familiar faces.

Although a scaled-back, 'socially distanced' affair, it will have live music, loud comedy and plenty of fun. The cast will change throughout the run with half a dozen appearing every night. Already confirmed: Roy Brandon, Eithne Browne, Jamie Clarke, Michael Fletcher, Stephen Fletcher, Lindzi Germain, Cath Rice, Andrew Schofield, Hayley Sheen, Michael Starke, Keddy Sutton and Liam Tobin, with more being added day by day.

The venue has put in a wide range of safety plans, including 'socially distanced' cast and audience, temperature checks, new cleaning procedures, enhanced table service and one way systems. There will be paperless tickets, lots of hand sanitiser and antibacterial door handles and menus.

The Royal Court guarantees to refund or exchange tickets for anybody affected by COVID or if any performances are cancelled.

The staff will all be wearing facecoverings and audiences will be asked to do the same while moving around the building.
