Our Covid-19 Policy

COVID 19 – HOW WE ARE KEEPING YOU SAFE AT THE NEC

Although the Government has advised that it’s fine to attend a Christmas party, we understand COVID-19 is ever present and that cases have risen slightly in recent days. We wanted to let you know what extra steps we’ve taken this year to make our Christmas party venue at the NEC as safe as possible. 

A COVID SECURE VENUE

On entry, all our guests are already being asked to prove their Covid status using the NHS Covid App or an official NHS letter. So every guest in our venue is either double jabbed, has presented a negative test within 72 hours, or has natural immunity. 

FRESH AIR VENTILATION SYSTEM 

The NEC benefits from a mechanical fresh air ventilation system, which circulates clean, safe air continuously through the evening. The air filtration system has also been upgraded. The venue features a 10 metre high ceiling, further helping fresh air circulation.

A SPACIOUS VENUE

Unlike a smaller pub or restaurant, Christmas Party World is set within 10,000 sqm of event space, allowing more personal space to keep our guests comfortable and safe. There is plenty of space to move around through the evening or to stay at your table should you prefer. 

ENHANCED VENUE CLEANING

Enhanced cleaning measures have been introduced with an additional focus on high-frequency touch points, such as counters, toilets, doors and handrails. Our cleaning teams have completed additional training, with many already compliant with NHS standards. Hand sanitiser is located at every till point.

FRIENDLY, SAFE STAFF

All our serving staff and Management have passed our COVID-19 check every 48 hours. And all staff will be wearing a face covering.
