Important building information

The Sheldonian Theatre is a Grade I listed building constructed nearly 350 years ago long before the introduction of modern day building regulations. Therefore by its nature it does not meet these regulations and standards. For this important reason, visitors and hirer must consider these risks carefully when planning a visit.

Schools or Groups bringing children or young people into the building are required to complete a full risk assessment prior to their visit, ensuring all reasonable risks which could arise during their visit have been considered.  Those Group Leaders who are not familiar with the building are asked to visit the Theatre in advance of the visit to assist with the completion of the Risk Assessment.

Further safety information for Group Leaders, Hirers and groups can be found to the right hand side of this page.  If you have any further questions about the venue please contact the Events team.
