Welcome back to A Play, a Pie and A Pint at Òran Mór!

Thank you for supporting us last Autumn, our first season back presenting brand new work and brilliant new plays as we all navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here’s what to expect when visiting us during the Spring ’22 Season. Below you will find the latest guidance from the Scottish Government regarding COVID-19 measures, and how we are complying with them.

Covid Guidance

In line with the latest guidance from the Scottish Government, A Play, A Pie and A Pint’s Spring ’22 Season will commence on 14th February 2022 with a maximum seated capacity of 200. Please note that unlike last season, there is no longer a requirement for seated social distancing within theatres.

What safety measures are in place?

  • Signage posted around the space reminding audience of COVID precautions
  • Audiences are asked to keep masks on while moving around AND for the duration of each performance, unless eating, drinking, or medically exempt
