Westgate Hall – a Covid secure, trusted, flexbile venue for everyone
It’s a place where village meets city in a distinctive, adaptable community space full of heritage and heart, located in Canterbury’s vibrant centre. From Market and Fairs, to training, meetings, celebrations and community get-togethers, additional space for schools and educational groups, health service events and indoor filming, the space can be shaped for your plans, budget and enjoyment.
Your safety is our priority. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, your experience will be a little different than it was before, but the feel of our amazingly spacious Hall and welcoming knowledgeable staff remain the same. We tailor every event to suit the experience you have, but overall you can expect:
- Sanitising stations throughout the venue
- Social distancing measures in place throughout the venue and at all times – two-metre distancing is in place for routes, walkways and one metre plus distancing in-between seats
- Reconfigured layouts, one-way entrance and exit systems with clear, visual-led signage
- Enhanced deep cleans
- Covid-compliant risk assessments
- Full staff training undertaken
- Obligatory face masks for staff, event hosts and visitors throughout a visit or event – disposable masks available at all times
- Track and trace in place according to the latest government guidelines
- Gloves and hand sanitisers are available at every stall at markets and fairs
- A very warm, friendly welcome and event management from our staff
We are adapting the Hall to the latest social distancing measures and can discuss a safe, tailored approach and capacity for your event upon enquiry. As a result of these efforts, VisitBritain has awarded the Hall the ‘We’re Good to Go’ Covid-safe mark, the new tourist industry standard.
We aim to get back to you within 48 hours on weekdays, but please bear with us as we work hard to reopen the Hall.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Westgate Hall community.
