COVID-19
The safety of our festival-goers, speakers, staff and volunteers is a high priority to us. We will always follow government guidelines on safety and hygiene.
Our hotel venue – The Innside, Manchester – is now operating at full capacity in line with government guidance. Masks are no longer compulsory, but we understand that people may wish to continue to wear one, and we will respect all such decisions.
We may leave doors open to maximise air flow and we will space seating for each event – please note, layouts will change as numbers are different for each event.
Our staff and volunteers are asked to take regular lateral flow tests to ensure they have not tested positive for Covid-19.
Hand sanitiser stations will be provided for your convenience by the hotel.

Please do not attend events in person if you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms or have tested positive for Covid-19. We will exchange your ticket for an online option – please just email: jilladam@louderthanwordsfest.com.
