Covid-19 Guidance

Tier 3 update – as of 2nd December Charnwood is in Tier 3 which means we have to remain closed for the time being. You can read more about that here.

Read our Tier 2 guidance update here.

We realise that there is much uncertainty about what you can and can’t do surrounding the Government Covid-19 guidelines but you can be sure that we’re all working hard to make the Hall as safe as possible. We can confirm that we are open and are working with all groups that use the Hall to ensure that they run in a Covid compliant way.

We have test and trace QR codes for signing in for each group along with paper copies for those who do not have access to the app. We also have temperature checks on entry and sanitising stations throughout the building.

We have a robust cleaning schedule and we review our practices and protocols weekly. We are consulting with relevant statutory agencies to ensure we are fully compliant.

To help with your visit we’ve put together a quick reference guide below about using the Hall. If you have any questions or are uncertain about anything then more detailed information is available on request so please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can also download the guide as a pdf here.
