FAQs

What ‘essential business activity’ is still able to take place at Edgbaston?

Under the current guidelines, events at Edgbaston are able to go ahead that are considered essential work, education or training, where these events cannot reasonably be conducted from home or postponed.

The events team can be contacted from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, by calling 0121 369 1994 (option 3) or via email at events@edgbaston.com.

What happens if my event is unable to go ahead due to Government restrictions?

With our COVID Booking Protection, if due to Government restrictions you are unable to hold your event, our flexible options will allow you to work closely with our team to establish how you would like to move forward with your event.

No. Our team will issue you 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.

Do Edgbaston Events offer a flexible cancellation policy?

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.

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

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.
