Government guidance and rules for use of public buildings change with effect from Monday 17 May.

The hall can then be used for a wider range of events, including:

  • Indoor sporting activities and exercise classes
  • Film shows, plays, concerts – 50% capacity
  • Social clubs, group events
  • Organised indoor gatherings
  • Coffee mornings or similar
  • Supervised activities for children, parent & child groups up to 15 plus the under five’s
  • Wakes & weddings and other significant life events for up to 30 people

We expect the rules to change again with effect from 21 June (“Step 4”), with an announcement a week before that. There is a separate announcement expected around 24 May about detailed rules for weddings and wedding receptions.
