COVID-19 UPDATE

10th March 2021

We are excited to be able to start making plans to re-open our doors to the public once again.

We are keen to invite bands back to rehearse, to re-start our creative workshops, to be able to hire out our space, to host exhibitions and of course to be able to invite our community back through our doors, it’s been so quite without you!

Of course as with all organisations our plans are tied in with the governments roadmap and we will continue to keep a close eye on any developments, therefore all plans will be subject to change.

 

May 17th

Re-open for band rehearsals and room bookings for small groups of no more than 6.

June & beyond

We will be re-starting our Westbury workshops including a summer schedule of children's workshops.

 

We ask that all visitors:

  • Use the hand sanitiser on arrival

  • Social distance at all times indoors

  • Wear masks in communal areas (unless you are exempt)  

  • Please note that the kitchen will not be available for shared use 

  • Test and Trace QR code or forms required to be completed for all visitors

We already have some events and exhibitions scheduled for June and beyond, please visit https://www.westburyartscentre.org.uk/events-workshops for a full listing of what’s going on at Westbury.

  • High frequency touch points such as door handles and light switches will be cleaned daily

  • We ask all visitors to sign in with their own pen

30th June

We are currently making plans to re-open to small groups at the end of July.  Please keep a look at for more information which will be posted as and when we have it.  Thank you for your patience.

17th March

In line with government and Public Health England guidelines, Westbury Arts Centre have made the difficult decision to temporarily close to the public as of today.

The well being of our artists, volunteers, visitors and of course staff are our priority.  We will be cancelling all bookings & events until the end of March, this of course may well be extended into April. 

  

In these challenging and unprecedented times we hope you understand this difficult but necessary decision and hope that you will continue to support us in the future when more than ever we will need your support.    

We will continue to assess the situation daily and intend to align ourselves with the latest government advice and guidance.

If you have any questions, please contact admin@westburyartscentre.co.uk

We would like to thank you for your understanding and support during this time.
