At Manchester Central, our priority is to provide a welcoming, safe environment where outstanding events take place and memorable experiences are created.
We want every visitor to have a safe and enjoyable time at the venue. To facilitate this, we have highly skilled teams in place as well as certain measures designed to provide comfort and reassurance for all, allowing you to focus on enjoying your time with us.
We work with every event organiser to help plan and implement safety measures based on the specific needs of each event.
Please check your event website directly for details on any specific entry requirements that may be in place during your visit.
We encourage everyone to play their part in keeping our visitors and colleagues safe. If you are experiencing any symptoms or feel unwell, we ask that you don’t attend the venue.
In addition, we have a range of safety features in place at the venue including:
- Hand sanitiser stations located around the venue
- Frequent cleaning and sanitising of spaces and touchpoints
- Wearing of face masks welcomed
- A cashless and contactless venue where possible
- Clear signage on venue safety measures, reminding everyone of the importance of hygiene
- Onsite event safety team for first aid support
- Venue stewards on hand to provide information and assistance
All our spaces benefit from ventilation that exchanges internal air with fresh air from outside. Our systems and air flow rates are compliant with the latest CIBSE & HSE recommended guidance for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.
Every visitor who comes to Manchester Central may have their bags searched.
We therefore ask you to consider keeping bags and possessions to a minimum. Please also consider the size of your bag - we recommend just one small bag or handbag - to minimise the time it takes to search and gain access to the event. When planning your arrival to the venue, we suggest you allow some extra time for security checks.
If you have any queries please get in touch with our team who will be happy to help.
