What are the Current Rules Regarding Meeting, Training and Conference Venues Being Open?

Meeting, training and conference venues are allowed to be open, providing they can adhere to the safety measures imposed by the government and sector best practice.

The government's announcement of a second lockdown, which is due to run until 2nd December 2020 does not affect business events. After receiving permission from the government, we reopened our venues on 1st August 2020 and have been authorised to run events for up to 30 attendees. Therefore, as long as your meeting, training event or conference is for 30 people or fewer, you can go ahead and start organising it. Enquire with us now for availability.

We have implemented an extensive array of safety measures and precautions to keep all visitors safe. As a result, we have achieved various industry-leading accreditations for Covid safety. We have produced this walkthrough video to give you an idea of what it will be like when you next visit us and to give you peace of mind that we have every aspect taken care of.



For more information about the measures we have put in place, read our comprehensive Safety First Handbook.

What Business Events are Currently Allowed?

There has been some confusion surrounding this over the past few weeks, but at the time of writing this article, the below explains what is and is not allowed:

  • Any type of business event that cannot be conducted from home, up to 30 attendees are currently permitted, providing social distancing rules can be adhered to. This includes meetings, training, conferences, receptions and hybrid events.
  • Any type of events with more than 30 attendees are currently banned.
  • The government were aiming to permit the reopening of exhibition centres and events of more than 30 people from 1st October 2020, but this has now been put on pause, pending regular review.
