Dress code

Black tie

COVID-19 safety measures agreed with the venue:

  • All catering and event staff are tested regularly using Rapid Lateral Flow tests.

  • The number of tables in the ballroom will be reduced to allow more space between each table.

  • With fewer guests, this also means more space at our reception to allow guests to move around more freely in these areas.

  • The hotel has an excellent ventilation system to ensure clean air is circulated into each room.

  • All hotel and catering service staff are requested to wear face masks.

  • There will be hand sanitising stations at the entrances to the hotel and around the venue for guests to use.

At the time of writing, mask wearing at large events is not mandatory and guests will be able to choose to wear masks in the reception areas and remove them once seated at their tables. We continue to monitor the situation with regard to masks.

What we are asking of you!

By attending the Awards ceremony, you acknowledge that:

  • you are free of all COVID symptoms

  • you are not awaiting the result of a COVID test

  • you are not currently required to self-isolate or quarantine

  • you will respect any specific COVID precautions put in place by either the organisers and/or the venue whilst in or around the venue during the event.

While you are not required to do so, we recommend that all guests take a Rapid Lateral Flow test 24 hours prior to attending the Awards dinner for their own peace of mind. You can get these tests free from pharmacies or online here.

We thank all our guests in advance for their cooperation and continued support to ensure a safe and comfortable evening.
