  • Reconfigured layouts, one-way entrance and exit systems with clear, visual-led signage
  • Enhanced deep cleans
  • Covid-compliant risk assessments
  • Full staff training undertaken
  • Obligatory face masks for staff, event hosts and visitors throughout a visit or event – disposable masks available at all times
  • Track and trace in place according to the latest government guidelines
  • Gloves and hand sanitisers are available at every stall at markets and fairs
  • A very warm, friendly welcome and event management from our staff

We’ve covered it all, proven by our We’re Good to Go’ accreditation from VisitBritain – the industry standard.

We’re Covid secure, we’re trusted, we’re flexible
Our amazingly spacious venue (360 square metres!) is ideal for social distancing, and our friendly, highly trained and knowledgeable staff are here to help you plan and deliver your events, training, meetings, community get-togethers, celebrations of life, indoor filming and extra activity space for schools and educational groups, when guidelines allow.

Plus, we’re right in the heart of Canterbury city centre and have an adjacent car park, making access easy.

Even when we’re closed, we’re open!
If government guidelines mean we temporarily can’t hold public events, we’re still open for you to call or email us to discuss your event needs. We know that 2021 is proving to be unpredictable, but we can adapt plans as and when you need, working with you to find the best solutions.
