VENUE UPDATE as of 22 February 2021
Following a statement to the House of Commons today, the Prime Minister has unveiled how the UK will emerge from lockdown. As an industry, this means that we now have a roadmap, dates, and details of an Events Research Programme. We are excited to welcome back events – in all their glory, and get back to what we love so much. Our expert team is ready when you are to support and deliver inspiring event experiences.
The timeline below shows the key dates for resuming events in London:
- On 17 May, at the earliest – indoor events up to 50% of our venue’s capacity, and significant life events with up to 30 attending.
- On 21 June, at the earliest – larger events and no legal limit on life events.
As we navigate the next couple of months, we’re proud to offer event organisers a money-back guarantee, which means flexibility to change dates at no additional charge. With the help of our in-house audio-visual and production team, we also coordinate flexible event delivery to easily allow switching between virtual, hybrid, or in-person formats, if/when required.
Currently, we remain open for the purposes of film production and TV filming, as per the latest Government rules pertaining to the National lockdown. Venue hosting at this time also includes any essential worker training, specific education programmes, charitable and medical use, volunteering, nursery activities, mutual aid groups, elite sports training, film production, and outside broadcasts without an audience.
It is worthwhile to note that Church House Westminster is also currently a temporary asymptomatic Covid-testing site, which means that our staff and clients are able to make use of symptom-free testing when visiting the venue.
Our 19 flexible event spaces and versatile hybrid studios adhere to the current physical distancing capacities and restrictions and are all equipped with the latest in-house event technology – expertly managed by our in-house audio-visual and production team who manages a range of hybrid and virtual event experiences.
We’re here to help plan your future events with our bespoke virtual site visits and online demonstrations of our hybrid and virtual event platforms.
