A joyous & careful return...

After many long, difficult months we’ve finally reopened our doors & are once again putting out the music & culture we & all our community love. In order for us to keep our staff safe & customers safe, we hope you’ll join us in being thoughtful & careful as we return to the dance floor. Please clock the the following steps we have in place...

Staff & security will sanitise regularly & wear masks at their discretion.

Air flow will be maximised in both rooms with our powerful air ventilation units.

High contact surfaces, including door handles & tills will be cleaned regularly by staff.

Contactless card payments are encouraged to limit unnecessary contact.

You can help by…

Not attending if you have any COVID symptoms. Refunds will be provided if you can no longer attend due to this.

Taking regular lateral flow tests & not asymptomatically transmitting.

Sanitising your hands regularly whilst in the Club.

Moving round both floors of the venue to ensure extra room on the dance floor.

Getting double vaccinated as soon as you’re able to.

Considering wearing a mask whilst in WHQ.

Whilst we don't currently require COVID passports/proof of vaccination, it's the personal responsibility of every individual one of us to limit the spread & ensure nightclubs remain open.

Devil Bat

A novel combo of two staples here… Proving the theory that sticking to one costume can sometimes prove more effective, as we’re just left feeling a little confused…
