COVID-19: Advice for our clients

In line with government guidance, the Pump Room and Roman Baths, Assembly Rooms, Guildhall and Victoria Art Gallery have re-opened their doors and are now available for small wedding ceremonies for up to 30 people. 

At present parties, live performance events and business events are still not permitted but this is under constant review by Government. We are hopeful that we'll be able to host these events again soon. 

We have implemented a number of changes to maintain the safety of our guests and staff. 

  • Enhanced cleaning regime before, during and after events with sanitiser stations available for everyone.
  • Physical measures to ensure 2m physical distancing (or 1m+ where this is not possible) with particular attention to identified pinch points such as toilets.
  • Staff issued with appropriate PPE and trained to be vigilant in maintaining necessary physical distancing.
  • Other measures such as increased ventilation, staff checks and encouraging contactless payments.

We appreciate that circumstances are different for each customer and so, for any of our customers who have event bookings about which they are concerned we are happy to transfer any deposit paid to a comparable future date. We are not currently offering refunds for any event taking place beyond August but if Government advice confirms we are unable to accommodate bookings full refunds for venue hire will be offered if an alternative date is not practicable.

As options for events become clearer, we will keep you informed on our website and social media channels with any information and updates.  Please do stay in touch by following us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
