COVID-19

We are lucky at Drapers’ Hall to be able to remain agile due to our flexible space arrangements. Therefore, as a matter of caution and care, we have made the decision to reduce our capacity for upcoming shows by 50%. We will review this when the time is right, but for now, we want all who visit the hall – audience, staff, volunteers and artists, to feel comfortable and safe whilst attending events in our new venue. Additional provision for our current COVID-19 measures can be found on our COVID-19 policy page.

Venue Hire

Drapers’ Hall is available for corporate hire. Rooms can be booked for daytime and/or evening events, as individual spaces or a full venue hire – including weekends.
