Shared experiences help venues re-launch facilities

Meet Cambridge has unveiled a support strategy to help venues re-launch their facilities following closure. The venue finding service is helping its members by providing advice on virtual showrounds, information from the latest guidelines, Covid-secure accreditations and in sharing experiences and knowledge between venues. With small business meetings of up to 30 people in Covid-secure settings now allowed, some venues have opened and are taking enquiries from event organisers looking to hold team meetings, training sessions and strategy days.

Judith Sloane, acting manager for Meet Cambridge, said: “Our venues experienced huge challenges during lockdown with the total ban on opening leading to many staff being furloughed. Now that guidance is allowing small business meetings, a number of our venues are gradually re-opening.”

Venues open for small business meetings include academic settings such as Jesus College, Murray Edwards College, Robinson College, Madingley Hall, The Møller Institute, The Pitt Building and Anglia Ruskin University. Other spaces open now or later in October include: IWM Duxford, Hilton Cambridge City Centre, Newmarket Racecourse, Storey’s Field, The Granta Centre and University Arms & Parker’s Tavern.
