The safety of our visitors, staff and students is our priority. Here's what we're doing to help keep everyone safe, and what you can do to help.
In line with government guidelines, all staff and visitors must wear a face covering when inside our buildings. Read our list of exemptions. Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. If no tissue is available, use your elbow.
The number of visitors permitted in our spaces has been reduced. Although it is no longer mandatory, we ask that visitors give people space where it is sensible or requested.
Please do not visit Lakeside if you or anyone you live with is feeling unwell or have a loss of smell, temperature, consistent cough or loss of taste.
Hand sanitiser is available at regular intervals throughout our venues. We recommend you make use of these upon arriving and leaving our venue.
The frequency of our cleaning throughout our venues has been increased, including toilets and other facilities.
We are currently only accepting contactless payments. Cash will not be accepted. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
