Advice for visiting us
Keep a 2M distance at all times
To help maintain social distancing we have introduced a number of measures to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit for all.
Here is how we are keeping you safe, along with some of the new measures in place at Selby Centre:
You must wear a face covering when at the Selby Centre unless you meet the exemption
criteria set by the government.
There are one way systems in operation around various locations at the Selby Centre. Please adhere to these routes at all times.
Whilst with us, please follow current social distancing guidelines. We have floor markings to remind you to keep a 2m distance from other users, visitors & staff.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and place the tissue into the bin straight away.
Please wash your hands before and after you visit the Selby Centre. We have hand sanitiser stations across the centre for your use.
We advise users and visitors to regularly check this page and our social media for regular updates as the Covid-19 situation constantly is evolving.
We are now cashless - for all venue hire enquiries, we have now moved online. Please check our sub-section on venue hire for more info.
If you are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19, we kindly ask that you do not visit us, & that you seek medical advice, following government guidance.
Barriers have been added in select places around the Centre where it is more difficult to maintain social distancing, e.g. at reception.
We have temporarily had to limit the capacity per lift at Selby Centre. Please adhere to capacity limits. The next lift will be along shortly.
2m markings, posters and signage have been put up across the Centre for your safety, identifying potential pinch spots, and safer routes of walking around site.
Enhanced cleaning now taking place, with additional substances that kill viruses and bacteria on contact in order to reduce the risk of coronavirus spreading.
Changes to venue hire & capacity
Due to new government guidance in place regarding current capacities in indoor and outdoor venues, and in regards to social bubbles, we have had to make quick changes to our room booking capacity numbers. This is in compliance with current social distancing guidelines.

Video statement from MP's regarding the Vaccine
Here is a collection video statements made by MP's of the BAME background explaining why it is essential for our communities to take the vaccine and help fight against the virus.
With the vast amount of disinformation circulating, it is crucial communities receive the correct information about the vaccine. The BBC has produced excellent translated videos which explain the COVID-19 vaccine and answer frequently asked questions about it in Gujarati, Punjabi, Sylheti, Tamil, Urdu and English. These explain that it is safe to take and very effective. It is important that when the time comes for people to take the vaccine, they do that.
Please help save lives by sharing these resources and the supporting text below within your community networks and WhatsApp/social media groups as soon as possible.
Our fight against COVID-19 is far from over. Share these resources with your friends and family so that they are aware of the latest lockdown rules, and so they can learn about the COVID-19 vaccine and why it is so important. #LondonTogether
