Covid-19 venue hire updates

Hold a safe and successful event at The Forum

The Forum has put a series of measures in place to ensure the safety of our visitors and customers holding events. 

We're delighted to have been awarded the Visit Britain "We’re Good To Go” mark that confirms we are following Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and have robust processes in place to maintain cleanliness, minimise risks and ensure social distancing is in place.

Revised venue capacities

To ensure social distancing can be maintained during events we've made changes to the capacities of our venue hire spaces. 

Our events team are on hand to work with you and design the best layout for your event.

The Forum: Covid-19 revised capacities

The View - perfect for Zoom meetings

The use of Zoom, Microsoft Teams and other online conferencing applications has been essential over the last few months. However, managing large meetings on a small screen can be frustrating and time consuming. 

The View is perfect for virtual or small in-person meetings with a massive 65" Avocor smart screen. Featuring a built-in microphone and multi-webcam capability you can host meetings or events in comfort. 

The View's intimate size also makes it ideal for small socially-distanced meetings when a video call isn't a suitable option. 

Best of all, it is bookable by the hour for just £40+VAT. 

Holding your event safely

We have put numerous measures into place across our sites to ensure the safety of our guests, suppliers and staff and clear procedures and processes have been developed to plan and deliver your event safely. 

Your safety is our top priority and we have introduced a series of measures for your and our staff's safety:

  • Clear signage designating one way routes and entrances in and out of the building
  • The Forum building and our tenants are participating in the NHS Track & Trace system with barcodes at entrances 
  • Clear Covid-19 signage and social distancing throughout the building
  • Hand sanitiser stations throughout the building
  • Enhanced cleaning regimes for high-touch points like door handles, railings, lift buttons
  • Contactless payments within The Forum car park.  
  • Revised capacities for our hire spaces 

We've also updated our venue hire terms and conditions to include additional Covid-19 specific information.
