21st June 2021
6.30 - 9pm
La Galleria, Pall Mall, London, SW1Y 4UY
- Will the event still go ahead with Covid restrictions still in place?
Yes! Measures will be in place to ensure my guests feel comfortable in the gallery space and are able to socially distance from other guests. By law we will still be able to operate at 50% capacity (80 guests) within the gallery at any one time.
Door staff will be controlling the numbers inside the gallery and guests will be required to register their attendance with the NHS Track and Trace system at the door.
Drinks will be flowing, served by my wonderful team, and guests will be requested to enjoy their drinks whilst seated in order to comply with current regulations.
The queue and overflow area will be in the Royal Opera Arcade, with catalogues on hand for guests to peruse whilst they wait.
Guests are encouraged to carry out a Lateral Flow Test within 36 hours of attending the event. Though not a legal requirement, we all want to keep each other safe and must recognise that we can still transmit the virus even if we have had two vaccine doses. The tests are free and can be ordered via the government website, linked here.
- Will I need to wear a face mask?
Yes! Masks will be required inside the gallery space when you are not seated, unless you are exempt.
- Will I have to queue to get in?
In order to comply with government restrictions the door staff may limit entry if it gets particularly busy. However the wait will not last long and catalogues will be on hand for queuing guests to peruse whilst they wait.
- Can I attend if I have not RSVP'd?
Yes, but RSVP as soon as possible. If your name is not on the confirmed guest list you may be asked wait a while if the gallery is busy.
- Can I buy a painting on the night?
Yes! Card payments and BACS transfers can be made at the gallery on the night.
