Covid Safety

We have had our fingers crossed …and though we have had to move our dates to become a summer Trail for 2021, it seems that the world has turned in our favour and we are in the wonderful position of being able to visit each other, to celebrate and share our creativity.

Keeping You Safe

Our Safety Measures

Please come and revel in the art that has been made during this past extraordinary year. It may have emerged, hard won, from difficult times or from a creative spark that has been a life-line to its creator.

One thing is certain, we have all missed the opportunity to share everything we have made in isolation and so your visits to our workplaces this year, are all the more welcome!

When you are out and about on the Trail, you will find that each Venue has put measures in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for visitors and artists, in compliance with current government guidelines.

Keeping You Safe


Artists exhibiting at the Chichester Art Trail will observe a number of important rules when opening their Trail Venues to help keep visitors safe.

Artists will:

  • offer a warm welcome at a distance.
  • wear a face covering.
  • provide an NHS Test and Trace form, or ask you to use the QR poster, to record your visit to the Venue.
  • supply hand sanitiser for visitors.
  • restrict visitor numbers in a Venue.
  • manage social distancing.
  • sanitise touch points and ventilate the Venue.

Keeping You Safe


When visiting artists exhibiting at the Chichester Art Trail, please ensure that you follow the guidance to help keep you and others safe.

Visitors are required to:

  • upon entering the Venue, fill in the NHS Test & Trace form to record your visit or you can use the QR poster, if you have the NHS app.
  • please keep a record of Venues visited, for tracing purposes.
  • wear a face covering to enter each Venue.
  • use hand sanitiser on entry.
  • wait to be invited if the Venue is already at full visitor capacity.
  • maintain social distancing if queueing and inside the Venue.
  • not touch artworks unless intending to purchase.

NHS Test and Trace

NHS Test and Trace Logo

As lockdown restrictions are lifted, the Test & Trace system has become ever more important in identifying local outbreaks and rapidly responding to new variants of concern.

To support NHS Test and Trace, we have been mandated by law to collect and keep a record of visitors who come into our Art Trail Venues, for the purpose of contact tracing. To that end, each Venue will be registered with a QR (Quick Response) code which will create a unique tracing poster for that location.

As a visitor to the Art Trail, upon entering a Venue, you will be asked to fill in some basic information and contact details on a Test and Trace form:

  • The names of all visitors, or if it is a group of people, the name of one member of the group.
  • A contact phone number for each visitor, or for the lead member of a group of people.
  • Date of visit and arrival time and departure time.
  • Alternatively, if you have the NHS phone app, you can use the QR poster to register your details.

Recording visitor details: how we use your information

Privacy notice

The Venue, as the data controller for the collection of personal data, will be responsible for compliance with data protection legislation for the period of time it holds the information. If that information is requested by the NHS Test and Trace service, the service would be responsible for compliance with data protection legislation for that period of time.

The NHS Test and Trace service, as part of safeguarding your personal data, has in place technical, organisational and administrative security measures to protect your personal information that it receives from the Venue.

NHS Test and Trace have asked us to retain this information for 21 days from the date of your visit, to enable contact tracing to be carried out by NHS Test and Trace during that period.

We will only share information with NHS Test and Trace if it is specifically requested by them. For example, if another visitor at the Venue reported symptoms and subsequently tested positive, NHS Test and Trace can request the log of visitor details for a particular time period.

Under government guidance, the information we collect may include information which we would not ordinarily collect from you and which we therefore collect only for the purpose of contact tracing. Information of this type will NOT be used for other purposes (for example, we will not use data collected for NHS Test and Trace for marketing purposes) and NHS Test and Trace will not disclose this information to any third party.

Your information will always be stored and used in compliance with the relevant data protection legislation and will be securely disposed of after 21 days.

The use of your information is covered by the General Data Protection Regulations Article 6 (1) (c) – a legal obligation to which we as a Venue are subject; a set of new regulations from the government, to co-operate with the NHS Test and Trace service, in order to help maintain a safe operating environment and to help fight any local outbreak of corona virus.

By law, you have a number of rights as a data subject, such as the right to be informed, the right to access information held about you and the right to rectification of any inaccurate data that we hold about you. If you are unhappy about how your information is used, please contact, in the first instance, to resolve your issue.
