Chris Le Gryst, UK Vinyl Vault

“We needed to feel confident as we returned to hosting our regular Canterbury Record Fair, but we knew that Westgate Hall would step up to the mark and they’ve done just that. They’ve worked closely with us to adapt the space, maximising capacity whilst keeping to the new restrictions. Clare and the team have thought of everything, right down to the nitty-gritty detail. I can’t tell you how helpful, comforting and confidence-building it’s been. You’re in very safe hands with Westgate Hall”

Cathy and Katie, Wellness Markets

“We've struck gold with Westgate Hall. It has everything we look for in a venue - it's in a town/city, it has parking, lots of space and more including toilets, disabled access, is Covid safe and secure. Plus they have two very friendly managers. They communicate well and often. We're so pleased.”
