Planning an event is a tricky task at the best of times, and the coronavirus pandemic has only amplified the difficulties event managers face when trying to pull together a successful conference, trade show or exhibition.

Restrictions around the UK have meant that many events have had to be cancelled or rescheduled for a time when the virus is better under control. With the roll-out of the vaccines underway, the end is finally in sight and a successful curb of the spread is imminent, and that means many companies and event managers will be looking to get back on track in the near future.

Whilst this is good news, it’s inevitable that the pandemic will still have a role to play in gatherings and events for the foreseeable and it will still need to be heavily considered by those planning, attending and hosting events. Here at Goosedale, we have years of experience in hosting a wide spectrum of events and we were able to successfully adapt our services in line with the pandemic and the restrictions imposed by it.

After months of meticulously reading government guidelines and taking in scientific/medical advice, along with our years of experience in hosting events of all descriptions that run without a hitch, we are confident that we can help you plan and manage an event during the pandemic that is both successful and safe for all those involved.

Events at Goosedale

Over the years, we’ve played host to a large number of Nottingham bespoke events, including:

We routinely work alongside event managers and have curated packages for every type of event to encompass everything you will need. We want to make the process as easy and hassle-free as possible for those planning business events in Nottingham, as well as those looking for general hospitality for weddings and functions. With this in mind, we have several package options.

For our corporate clients, you can expect to pay a fixed price that will cover:

Wedding and private hire guests will also be able to book one of our packages which can be customised to include room hire of your choice, food and reception entertainment hire.

Whilst we offer a number of predetermined packages for both corporate and private events, we recognise that some of our clients require a completely bespoke package which is why we are openly flexible and able to create a package that is specifically designed with your event in mind.

Adapting to the Pandemic

Although the coronavirus pandemic has uprooted much of normal life, for us at Goosedale, it’s business as usual. Our commitment to providing you with everything you need to run a successful event is unchanged and our team remain on-hand to assist and advise you in any way you need.

That being said, we have implemented a number of processes to ensure we’re Covid-secure, including:

This means we’ve adapted our rooms and services in line with government guidelines, but we’re still able to provide the same level of exceptional service we always have. We have taken care of being Covid-secure so you don’t have to.

If you’re concerned about the reduced capacity, please contact our team and we will talk you through your options. If you want more guests than the room you’re looking to hire is safe to accommodate during the pandemic, we can look at other rooms and suites that are larger and can host more people whilst still being Covid-secure. There are always options and nothing is too much trouble, so please speak to us so we can find a solution that works for you.
