COVID-19 Secure Events at the Design Museum

As we navigate through the challenges Coronavirus (COVID-19) has presented, the Design Museum is carefully following government guidelines to deliver its activities.

With current restrictions the Design Museum is able to assist you with planning professional filming and business meetings for up to 30 people, as well as any future events that you are planning.

So what can businesses do?

  • Business meetings and events may take place with up to a total of 30 people if reasonably necessary - for example for the purposes of work that cannot be done at home - if social distancing can be maintained and the venue can demonstrate it has followed the COVID-19 guidance. Event spaces, including in conference centres and exhibition halls, can be used for reasons permitted by law, including for business events of up to 30 where reasonably necessary, for education and training purposes where reasonably necessary.

  • Professional film and TV filming is allowed at permitted venues. Please click below for further guidance.
