Enjoy the summer. Enjoy Crystal Palace.
Though, we'll have to wait a little longer for full-capacity venues and easing of social distancing guidelines; we hope that you are enjoying an increased range of options as you shop, eat and treat local in Crystal Palace (inside and out).
Check with venues for arrangements in place for your safety. The basic rules for hospitality are: rule of six indoors or two households, seated with table service; groups of up to 30 outside.
All our local businesses are so happy to welcome you back. Please do what you can to support them, #shopkind and help them as they adjust to yet another version of new normal.
For hospitality: Let's say No to No Shows. Every service will count for keeping these businesses running. Let's show our appreciation to all those working hard and making a comeback.
We all play an important part in making this work for everyone.
Thank you to local artist and illustrator David Vallade for creating our summer look on the 2021 reopening artwork. Look out for posters in the windows of high street shops and venues.
