The Twyford is committed to keeping our volunteers, staff, contractors and visitors safe.

At present the Hall is closed to the public until 30 March 2021 and we will be monitoring the current advice from NSW Health and reopening with appropriate measures in place.

  • Electronic check-in is now mandatory for everyone (including staff) entering the venue

  • NSW Health strongly encourages people to wear face masks indoors.

All hirers must read and adhere to The Twyford’s current COVID-Safe plan, as well as any additional NSW Health requirements for your particular kind of event.

We recommend you develop a COVID-Safe plan for your particular event if there are additional requirements. Please try to avoid ambiguity between our venue plan and your event plan. If there is a conflict, the stricter restriction in force will apply.

For example, events involving music, singing, dance, weddings, funerals and events involving the serving of food or drinks have particular requirements:

Please allow extra time in your booking period for cleaning and sanitising, staggered venue entry, and COVID checkin and hand sanitising by everyone attending.

Seating plans, furniture layouts and planned flow of people outside entrances and through the venue must be approved by Twyford Operations prior to your event.

As NSW Health rules may change at any time at short notice, please confirm details prior to your event.

Your staff, volunteers, visitors and contractors must be informed about their obligations in adhering to COVID-safety in your promotional material.

Failure to monitor and adhere to safety rules may result in your booking being cancelled.

Inspections may be taken out by NSW Health at any time and failure to comply with COVID-19 restrictions can result in harsh financial penalties.


Equipment available for hirers includes:

  • sneeze barriers
  • crowd control barriers (2 x 2.1m)
  • Twyford QR code checkin signs
  • COVID-safety signage including floor decals
  • contactless forehead thermometer
  • sanitising fluid in the correct dilution for cleaning tables, chairs, doorhandles and other frequently used surfaces
  • 2 x contactless hand sanitising stations

Hirers must provide their own gloves, masks, cleaning cloths and any other items they need for their staff or performers to meet the COVID-safe plan requirements.

We strongly recommend you implement contactless payment methods – either using online bookings or hiring a contactless EFTPOS machine from your bank – to avoid cash handling.

If you have any questions about your obligations, please contact us.
