We are primarily looking for large indoor spaces – church halls are perfect – anywhere in London. It doesn’t need to be super close to Zone 1, but I think we do need spaces that are suitable for indoor camping.
The ideal we’re looking for is spaces we’d be able to use 24/7 , but use of halls during the night or day would still be very useful (for example, a group might be out all night, so could usefully camp in a certain hall the following day). Night access-only would be brilliant too.
2) What XR would offer: We would make sure members of our well being and stewarding team are on shift at all times to ensure the safety of members and also to look after the space.
These spaces won’t be ‘free-for-alls’ but allocated to specific local groups from around the country – people who already know and trust each other. This is also a way of making sure maximum capacity isn’t exceeded.
We don’t really have much budget but I’d be very happy to talk about deposits/contracts etc.”

As I say, I do realise this will be Holy Week, and as such is not good timing from a church point of view. But if there is a possibility your parish or community could help, we would all be very grateful. And please do feel free to get in touch if you have any question etc.
