What we’re doing to keep you safe

At Edgbaston, the safety of our guests and staff is our top priority.

During these unprecedented times, we have been working hard to ensure we can re-open our venue safely and that you and your guests have the confidence to be able to attend events at Edgbaston.

In order to comply with government guidelines and to allow us to host events safely, we have established Safe Meetings & Events: Our Promise which outlines the steps we are taking to ensure the health and safety of you, your guests and our staff.

We recently held our first socially distanced face-to-face meeting at Edgbaston Stadium and we were incredibly impressed with the systems and procedures that have been put in place to safeguard visitors and staff.

Can I postpone my event?

Yes, as long as you book your event with us before 30 September 2021, except in exceptional circumstances. Any cancellation fees for the future event date will be based on the original event date.

Can I reduce my minimum numbers?

Unfortunately, you are not able to drop your numbers to below the original contracted numbers when postponing.

We can offer hybrid event options if you do feel that you will have less guests travelling to your event. However, you will still be liable for the value of the original signed contract, except in exceptional circumstances.

Can I cancel my event?

After exhausting options regarding hybrid events or a postponement, you will be able to cancel your event and we will return to you your full deposit, less any costs that we have directly incurred in association with your event.

What about the size of the room, will this incorporate the social distancing measures?

All of our rooms will be running with lower than usual capacities. We are exploring options with regards to different social distancing measures and will follow procedures as laid out by the government. The health and safety of our guests and staff are at the forefront of any decisions made.

We have put together capacities based on 2 metre social distancing (UK Government guidelines).

Do I need to re-sign my contract when postponing my event?

No, you will be issued with a letter of variation for the new event which will change the date of your event only, all other clauses of your event will stay intact and cancellation of your event will be as per the original date.

How are Edgbaston ensuring safety procedures are up-to-date?

All COVID-secure procedures are reviewed on a fortnightly basis to ensure that they hold the most up-to-date information and are in keeping with all current guidelines. These procedures will be in place for the foreseeable future and are subject to change.

We hope that both society and the events industry will be able to return to a new normal as soon as possible. However, in the meantime, we will continue to strive and innovate to ensure the safety of all our guest and staff at Edgbaston.
