The safety of all our visitors, staff and those working for our programme partners is of paramount importance.
We have continued to work with our programme partners over the summer and in recent weeks to review their events and ensure they comply with current government advice and legislation.
Many partners, such as shops, museums and galleries, already have protocols in place covering hygiene, capacities and social distancing. We have asked all our partners to implement risk assessments to ensure they understand what is required and have appropriate measures in place.
A good proportion of our events already offer an intimate opportunity to engage with beautiful objects and their makers. Where necessary we have capped attendance to ensure social distancing; we have reduced the number of tickets for particular events, some events have become digital and a few have sadly been cancelled.
If the London Craft Week event you are attending has general access, you may be asked to wait a short while before you can enter if a venue is already at capacity. Please follow the instructions of staff and queue with consideration for fellow visitors and avoid blocking entrances and exits.
Please wear a mask, sanitise your hands and maintain social distancing. At certain venues you may be asked to leave your contact details.
We do not expect our programme to change significantly at this stage but do check on the London Craft Week website for any updates before travelling to an event.
We very much hope you enjoy this year’s festival.
