Coming out of lockdown – what can happen at the hall?

As we come out of lockdown, what is possible at the hall is changing (and increasing!) This table tells you what events can happen at each stage of the ‘roadmap’. We’ve compiled this from the information and guidance we have received from ACRE (Action for communities in rural England). They also provide detailed guidance for many of these activities.

Please remember that everything is subject to change; this is the situation as at 28th April 2021. (We will update as needed) Dates are currently May 17th for step 3 and June 21st for step 4. The capacity limit for the hall remains at 30 people until restrictions are lifted.

Here’s our bookings page with all you need to know about running your event at the hall. Read all about the hall on this page.
