We are sad to announce that Felicity of Flutes and Halloween House have had to be cancelled. Please check back for news on the Strictly Sherlock event.
For Felicity of Flutes on 26th September and Strictly Sherlock on 21st October we have made a few adjustments to our normal procedure to allow for Covid restrictions. Tickets will be limited to 50 to allow social distancing of the audience. Booking will be essential and no tickets will be available on the door. Groups will be sat at tables. The bar will be open for refreshments and to reduce queuing issues there will be table service. Masks will need to be worn when entering or moving around the Chapel but can be removed at the table. Hand sanitiser will be available at the admissions desk and at various other points. There will be a one way route to the toilets and these will be monitored and sanitized throughout the event. We will also require that each attendee fill in a trace card giving their contact details. These will be kept secure for two weeks after the events and destroyed if we are not notified of any positive covid results.
The Talk and Tour on 11th Oct is limited to 10 tickets. The guide will wear a face shield rather than a mask to making following his words easier. The tour will be planned to ensure social distancing is possible. As for the above events attendees will be asked to fill in their contact details on trace cards.
The Halloween House event will have a slightly different structure to normal which we are still discussing. There may be timed entrance times and the number of visitors in the house at one time in the house will be limited. Family groups will need to stick together and stick to the one way system. Masks will need to be worn in the house – the more imaginative the better.
For the rest of 2020 we have cancelled the Wild about Wool event and Christmas Fair as the limitations of the House would make social distancing as people browse the stalls impossible.
We have started putting together the calendar for 2021 so please keep checking back to see what is coming up.
