Are you open during the current lockdown that started in January 2021?
Stanley Arts is closed to the general public for public events at the moment. The Social Cafe and the Yard Bar are both closed.
The government guidance states that you should travel to work only if necessary and otherwise work from home. The building therefore continues to be open for studio residents who cannot work from home; and is also available for hire for professional rehearsals, film and photoshoots and other appropriate work activity.
When will the Social Cafe reopen from the January 2021 lockdown?
We will not be reopening Stanley Social Cafe until 21st Feb 2021 at the very earliest. If the Jan-Feb 2021 lockdown is extended further we will also stay closed. It is unlikely we will be reopening much before March 2021.
What mitigations are you putting in place around the building to combat the spread of viral infections?
Since the first lockdown in March 2020 we have instigated a range of mitigation strategies to prevent the spread of Covid-19. These include; hand sanitiser dispensers at entrances and in public places, mask wearing in communal spaces, QR codes at entrances, regular cleaning, one-way systems, increased ventilation, staff working from home where appropriate and, during summer 2020 when we were open for socially distanced events, an outdoor bar offering.
