    King Edward Hall

    Update 9th March 2021

    COVID-19 Guidance

    King Edward Hall is looking forward to reopening soon following the Government’s announcement that was made in February 2021 in which a 4 step Road Map to easing lockdown restrictions was provided.

    We are delighted that village halls will be permitted to reopen commencing 12 April 2021, however this will only be for those activities that are currently permitted under lockdown plus a small list of additional permitted activities.

    The process of unlocking will apply in four steps across England, without reverting to Tiers, with a minimum five weeks between each step. Each step is dependent on all four of the following conditions being met. All dates are “no earlier than" and the Government will confirm a week beforehand.

    • The coronavirus vaccine programme continues to go to plan
    • Evidence shows vaccines are sufficiently reducing the number of people dying or needing hospital treatment
    • Infections rates do not risk a surge in hospital admissions
    • New variants of the virus do not fundamentally change the risk of lifting

    King Edward Hall will be pleased to consider taking bookings as follows, subject to Government guidance in place at the time:

    Step One: From 8 March and 29 March

    Only those activities already permitted under lockdown.

    Step Two: From 12 April

    1. All indoor supervised children’s activities including dance classes and musical activities.
    2. Parent and child groups with up to 15 attending plus under-fives eg parents and toddlers.
    3. Funerals with up to 30 people; wakes and weddings with up to 15 guests.

    Social contact rules will continue to apply in all settings – meaning social distancing must be maintained, no indoor mixing allowed between different households.

    Step Three: From 17 May

    1. Controlled indoor events.
    2. Hospitality settings including cafes, coffee mornings and social clubs.
    3. Film shows, plays and concerts subject to social distancing.
    4. Indoor sports activities including exercise classes.
    5. Up to 30 persons attending weddings, receptions, funerals and wakes, including christenings.

    The “rule of 6” continues to apply to indoor events. Social distancing measures will need to be observed, including the Hall’s special COVID conditions of hire.

    Step Four: From 21 June

    1. All legal limits on social contact are due to be removed.
    2. Dancing will hopefully be permitted.

    We regret that further guidance is currently awaited regarding booking conditions that will apply from this date.
