Important message re Covid-19 and implications for screenings from Bemerton Film Society

We are back! As we slowly emerge from the Coronavirus lockdown, the Bemerton Community Trustees and the BFS Committee have agreed that it is now safe to cautiously re-start activities in St John’s Place.
There will be a number of changes and precautions to reduce the infection risk. These will include:
- To ensure social distancing of at least 1.5m between seats, numbers attending will be restricted. Couples will be able to sit together.
- To avoid having to turn people away, everyone will have to book their place in advance. Please send an email to with the name, address and phone number of all attendees.
- Everyone will be asked to wear face masks throughout the screening. Please bring your own.
- Entrance will be through the main South Door, and people will be asked to maintain 2m distancing while entering and leaving.
- Contactless card payment preferred.
- Everyone attending will be asked to provide contact details to enable contact-tracing in the unlikely event of a Covid-positive case in the audience.
- Wine and cold drinks will be available, but no hot drinks.
- There will be a toilet available.
- The screening may be called off at short notice if regulations change, or if there is a local outbreak.
It will be very different to what we have become used to at our screenings, but as everyone will have appreciated by now, the world has changed. We hope you enjoy the film, even without close socialisation. As regulations ease, we hope we can be less restrictive for future screenings.
