Visiting the LBC in person

We are very pleased to be opening our doors again, albeit to fewer events and more limited numbers than in normal times. We are re-introducing in-person activities gradually, both to ensure we do this responsibly, and to give ourselves time to make any necessary adjustments.

Our reception and bookshop is now open again from 12-3pm Monday to Friday and 10am-4pm on Saturday. Do come and visit us - you can speak to our volunteer receptionists and make use of our well-stocked shop.

We have had to make some changes to how we use the centre – do read on if you’d like to know more. We hope you understand that we need to operate a booking system for the time being in order to maintain physical distancing. So do book below for the next available class, and we really look forward to seeing you. Keep an eye on our regular mailouts for more events becoming available in this way.

What is the LBC doing to minimise the risk of Covid infection? 

We are following the Government’s Covid-19 Secure Guidelines. Here are the changes we’re asking you to bear in mind if you come:

Feeling unwell Please do not visit the LBC if you are feeling unwell or experiencing Covid-19 symptoms. We hope you understand this measure is to keep all of us safe and to prevent the transmission of the virus. If you have booked and are subsequently unable to attend, please email bookings@lbc.org.uk so that someone else can use your place.

Limited numbers and booking – To ensure that everyone can keep 2 metres apart, we are running a booking system for our classes. The classes will still be live-streamed to YouTube, so if you are unable to book, you can still join us online. 

Physical distancing – We ask all participants to maintain a 2-metre distance from other people.  

Face coverings – We ask all participants and visitors to wear a face covering upon entering the centre building. 

Hand washing and hand sanitiser – We ask all participants to wash their hands upon entering or leaving the building. There are also hand sanitiser stations around the building.

One-way system – There will be a one-way system in operation and access to the main areas of the building will be through the small shrine room. The class team will be on hand to guide you.  

Cleaning – Our team and volunteers are regularly cleaning the centre to keep it clean and safe for all of us. All frequently touched areas will be cleaned before and after each class; mats and cushions are there for your use, but only team members will handle them before and after the class.

Refreshments We won’t be serving tea or biscuits at this time, so if you would like these, please do bring your own. Some of our first in-person classes will be short enough that there won’t be a tea break. 

Travelling to and from the LBC We are encouraging all participants and team to walk or cycle to the LBC where possible. If using public transport to visit the LBC, please be aware that current regulation states that face coverings must be worn when using public transport in England, including Transport for London services. 

A summary of the risks and mitigating actions we’re taking around Covid-19 is available here. 

We intend to resume more classes and reopen the LBC for longer periods at a safe and appropriate time. 

Details will be made available on our website and through our mailing list. If you would like to be kept up to date, please sign up at the bottom of this page.
