Covid-19

A Statement from the Coventry Central Hall lettings team
These last weeks have been, without doubt, the worst in the Coventry Central Hall’s lettings business history. Covid-19 has absolutely decimated us. The cafe and church with which we share this building have closed until further notice. Our letting groups, community groups and events have, quite rightly, cancelled or ceased to meet for the foreseeable future. We are a non for profit enterprise that solely exist to financially support the fantastic work of the Methodist church. As far as we can work out we are entitled to absolutely no financial support from the government.

 

We have not charged a penny in cancellation fees in an effort to keep the many small business afloat who use this place.

 

Following the latest government guidelines our building is now only being used by the Blood donation services. Stringent measures are being put in place by ourselves and the nurses to ensure that anyone coming to give blood is safe. We have provided extra space to the nurses at no extra cost so that social distancing can be carefully enforced. Extra cleaning will take place before and after every session. These sessions are by appointment only at www.blood.co.uk

 

So what next….? Jayne and myself, under the amazing guidance of our staff management team, are now working from home. This will, of course, be met with its own challenges as we are both affected by the school closures, so please bear with us if there is a delay in getting back to you. We were unable to set up phone lines in the time that we had, so please do contact us by email on bookings@coventrycentralhall.info.

 

We will use this time and space to work on the things we never have time to do, to plan for the future and for City of Culture 2021. It will be different, it will be challenging, it is very scary, but we fight on. Incidentally, if you have any ideas of what you think we should be doing with regard to City of Culture please talk with us. This will be something positive to look forward to which we all need right now.

 

Over the coming weeks and months we will be posting updates on social media and via a newsletter. Some of these may be funny, some of these may well be difficult as we both struggle to deal with the enormity of this situation. But as our physical contact distances we feel it is SO important to keep our “virtual” contact close as we offer all that we can to support our groups.

 

We ask that you spare a thought for Marcus, our caretaker, as he soldiers on, keeping our building clean and safe and for Michael who has entered self-isolation for many months.

 

As soon as it is safe we will begin to lift these restrictions and we hope our users return.

 

Stay safe ❤

 

Amanda & Jayne

Let's make your event amazing.

We’ve been a meeting place in the heart of Coventry since 1932, and we’d love to help you make your next meeting, concert, or event of any size a fantastic experience for you and your guests.

Built as a worshipping space, community centre and performance venue for over 800 guests, Central Hall is an amazing place to host your next meeting, training day, community group, award ceremony, wedding and much, much more.

It’s still the proud home of the Methodist Church at Central Hall as well as Wesley’s Community Cafe and every booking helps to support the work of these two great community organisations – not to mention all our non-profit groups who hire great-value meeting rooms on a regular basis.

We love our space, and we think you will too.

We’ll find you the perfect space

From individual tuition sessions to performances for hundreds, we’ll help you get the room that’s right for you.

We work with your budget

While we can’t change our room rates, we’ll never suggest a room that’s too big for your needs, and when your preferred room’s booked, we can usually offer you a better space for the same price. There are also discounts for 4+ hour bookings as well as a special rate for community/non-profit groups.

We have everything you need for a great event

Need a projector and screen? Tea and coffee for 10? Lunch for 100? We’ve got you covered.

We’re more than a conference centre

Run by a small, friendly staff team, the conference centre at Central Hall runs on a non-profit basis and supports the work of the on-site church and community cafe.
