COVID-19 Info

Updated: 02 March 2022


We know that you will have many different questions and feelings as restrictions change and venues become busier. We our reviewing the measures we take on a monthly basis, and will update this page with any changes that you need to be aware of before your visit to our buildings.


Whilst we are ready to welcome you back to our workshops, activities and events, please do not come to our venue if you:

      • have registered a positive test for COVID-19;
      • believe you may be infected with COVID-19 (e.g. you have symptoms and are awaiting a test result);
      • have been instructed to self-isolate for any reason.

We’d really appreciate it if you could take a Covid-19 lateral flow test before coming to the venue. You can order rapid test kits online or from your doctor or local pharmacy. The tests are free and give a result in less than 30 minutes.

If you haven’t already, please consider getting your COVID vaccination. Vaccinations are free and offer the best protection against coronavirus. You can book your vaccine online or there are walk-in clinics throughout the city.


We politely ask that you continue to wear a face covering while visiting our venues unless under 12, medically exempt or while eating and drinking. 

We also ask you to please respect others’ personal space.

Other safety measures that will remain in place include:

  • Ensuring there is enhanced fresh air supply into our spaces, this may mean it feels a little cooler so we encourage you to wear or bring an extra layer.
  • Ask that only people who are from the same group use the lift at any one time.
  • Sanitiser points throughout our spaces.
  • If you are using equipment and tools at KWMC: The Factory could you please clean and sanitise the equipment after use. Any questions? Please get in touch by e-mail ( or phone (0117 903 0444). We thank you all for your ongoing co-operation
