  • Spread your teachers out amongst the children.
  • Locate the emergency exit closest to your block.
  • No eating in the theatre.
  • Exiting
    • Exit promptly - as another group is coming in straight away.

    • You will only be able to stop to organise yourselves properly once you are well clear of the theatre. ie - downstairs in the courtyard.
