Brand X considers the health and safety of its artists, staff, hirers and their guests our highest priority. In response to COVID-19, we require all users of this space to:

  • Stay at home if you feel unwell (no cancellation fees will apply if you feel sick).
  • To recommend face masks be worn by staff and guests in all indoor areas except when engaging in exercise and dance classes.
  • Maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres where possible. No distance limits apply for exercise or recreation.
  • If possible, work with the windows open to ensure clean and fresh airflow.
  • Sanitize your hands and all surfaces you touch using the sterilizing products supplied.

Users need to be aware that NSW Health is operating a COVID-19 Testing Clinic in the lower hall and therefore Brand X have separated our rehearsal space in the upper hall from their operation downstairs. Access to the lower hall toilets is not permitted during clinic operating hours, but users are welcome to use the accessible toilet next to the upper hall entrance.

All users are required to read the revised COVID-19 terms and conditions before using the space:
