Vaccine or PCR Test Concert policy | 1st August - 31st October
After a long year, we are delighted to be opening our doors again for indoor concerts and cannot wait to see you all again from this August!
Most of you who are familiar with our venue will understand that a good deal of the charm and atmosphere experienced at Trading Boundaries is in the main due to the intimacy of this special place.
As the safety of all guests and staff is paramount to us, in these uncertain times and given the recent Government announcement, we have decided for a trial period of 3 months from August 2021 to the end of October 2021, that all concerts during this time will be only available to ticket holders who have been double vaccinated, and can prove their vaccination through the NHS app (or paper equivalent, together with ID).
For those of you who are unable to take the vaccine for medical purposes or choose not to, we will also accept evidence of a negative PCR test through the NHS app (or equivalent) - taken within 48 hours of attending. If this is not possible, we are very sorry that you will not be able to join us during this three month period, and will offer a full refund against your ticket.
In addition, we politely request that all those attending also take a Lateral Flow Test within 12 hours of joining us, just to bring additional peace of mind to everyone at the venue.
Masks - For dining guests we would ask that you wear a mask while being shown to your table and when you are moving around the premises. Standing guests can remove their masks while watching the concert, but please wear when moving around the venue.
We have been working hard to make sure every element of your experience has been thought through; from a major refurbishment program during the past year to a COVID-19 vaccine policy including enhanced cleaning protocols, giving you a chance to enjoy amazing live music again and most importantly feel safe. All bands and staff members are also committed to adhering to our safety policy.
By attending an event you will be declaring that neither you nor anyone in your household has tested positive for Covid 19 within the previous 14 days and that you do not currently have any Covid symptoms or are feeling unwell.
In the unfortunate event of you displaying symptoms, testing positive or needing to self isolate, and therefore cannot attend the concert, you will be eligible for a credit for your ticket, to be used against a future concert booking.
We have spent the past few weeks discussing becoming 'vaccine only' with both concert-goers and bands and have had overwhelming support for our approach, so we hope you will find our announcement a relief, and for those of you who do not agree with our policy we hope you understand that our decision has been made in the spirit of safety.
We very much look forward to the time when things can return to normal and that we can welcome everybody back without these precautions!
Live Music & Events
Please note that many of our live music events have been postponed to future dates. We continue to monitor the situation and have been in touch with all guests who have purchased tickets to any postponed events. We will announce revised dates as soon as possible in each case so please bear with us during these extraordinary times and please be assured that any postponed concert will be rescheduled.
Support Independent Shops
We’d like to make a special request. If you decide to purchase any goods this summer, we urge you to consider supporting independent businesses such as ours. Large well known brands will be able to weather this storm more easily than local, family run shops who may need your support now more than ever. So regardless of what it is you need, or where you live, please spend a few extra minutes searching for a company who really needs your support.
Thank you so much in advance!
Best Wishes & Love
