In light of the HM Government’s intention to return to a locked down status across England from Thursday we are seeking clarification on the precise effect this will have on the operation of the venue, we will be communicating how the East of England Arena and Events Centre intends to respond to this situation during the week once we have clarity.

Above all else, we will be guided by the advice and instructions being issued by HM Government and Public Health England. We are also in close contact with the Association of Event Venues (our trade association) for more detailed, venue-specific information. We have an excellent working relationship with our local authority and public health teams and we will continue to work with them in the coming weeks.

We have already taken significant precautions to protect everyone coming onto site – our personnel, organisers and visitors – as the guidance required to date. We will continue to implement and follow any guidance and we will be adopting all processes necessary to reduce the speed of community transmission.
