The Granta Centre can host your event for up to a practical limit of 30 people at 2m distancing, as the Granta Centre can demonstrate it is following COVID 19 secure guidance – we hold the “We’re good to go” certificate, see our COVID 19 Information for more details.
When can I have a meeting under less restrictions?
Current guidance is indicating that the original target date of 21 June is looking more definite for the lifting of restrictions – we wait to see.
