LISTON HALL PERMITTED USE - Update 17th December 2020


Marlow Community Association established Liston Hall as a Covid-secure venue earlier in the year and continues to work hard to maintain that status. In addition to our normal Booking Conditions, we have a set of conditions and guidelines relating to Covid-19. These are mandatory for all hirers and for every event, and will remain in force for the foreseeable future.


We also have this statement of permitted use. The statement, which follows guidance from Community Impact Bucks, is updated from time to time as the situation changes and takes precedence over other conditions if contradictions occur.

The following statement applies until further notice:


Liston Hall reopened on Wednesday 2nd December


MCA's Covid-related booking conditions and the additional responsibilities for hirers they describe will apply.


Capacity limits are defined – a maximum of 30 people in the Main Hall, 10 in the Thames Room and 10 in the Garden Room at any one time.


 Anyone visiting Liston Hall may do so only with members of their own household/support bubble or by themselves. Multiple households may attend the same event but must not mingle - interactions with anyone not in the same household/support bubble must be minimised.


Social distancing of at least 2 metres (1 metre if all involved are wearing face coverings) must be maintained between household groups.


Unless the individual has a valid official exemption, anyone visiting Liston Hall for any reason must wear a face covering which must be kept on at all times, except when participating in an exempt event type.


The face covering must cover the nose and mouth; a visor alone is not sufficient.

Each booking, both existing and future, will be assessed to ensure that it will be conducted in a way that complies with the law and current guidelines.  The Association reserves the right to refuse or cancel any booking that is or might be in contravention of the conditions.


Specific guidance is given throughout the site in red, describing the changes that Covid has made to our normal way of working, as well as necessary behaviour and precautions to protect all hirers and staff and to ensure the building can remain Covid-safe.

Liston Hall’s cancellation penalties as stated in the normal Booking Conditions have been suspended since reopening in July and it has been previously announced that they would be reintroduced from January 2021. In light of the continuing uncertainty, penalties will continue to be waived until the end of March 2021.
