Helping to keep you safe when you visit The Forum

When visiting the Forum you'll notice that some things have changed. 

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

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 and aid social distancing.  

Our teams are working hard to keep you safe with hand sanitiser stations, enhanced cleaning regimes for high-touch points like door handles, railings, lift buttons, and new contactless payments for The Forum car park.  

We’d like to thank everyone for their patience and support as we work to ensure everyone's safety. 

Please do not visit The Forum if you are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms.
