Covid update Monday 3 August

The Art House is continuing to offer online events, including live music streamed from our House to yours in August, food deliveries and kerbside collections and a community pantry with pay-as-you-feel groceries and chilled meals.

We will be pausing food deliveries and collections and our pantry for the first week of August to allow us to rearrange the downstairs space into a multi-purpose, accessible, socially distanced, well ventilated venue area for small performances, workshops and community café events.

Our first live streamed gig from the venue itself will happen on 8 August (without an in-person audience, of course) – see links below for details.

The plan is to run community cafés on Saturdays with bookable indoor and outdoor seating with maximum social distancing and staggered arrival times to minimise risk. We will update on this next week!

We will continue to operate strict 2m social distancing and no contact kerbside deliveries and collections, too.

The Art House is a mask-positive space and we invite our community to state their boundaries, concerns and requirements clearly so that we can all keep safe and learn how to navigate this pandemic together.

As always, we acknowledge and respect the diversity of our community and how this impacts on differing needs and levels of lockdown for each of us. Our aim is to support people to stay at home as much as possible, but gradually, as far as it is safe, to provide somewhere trusted and well managed to spend time with each other.
