Hands must be sanitised on entry, and you are required to scan the QR code for NHS track and trace.

Until the government guidelines change, the number of people in the building has been restricted to 6 people max (guests) for your safety.

Please still respect social distancing rules.

Cross keys building

The building itself is a 14th century building with internal oak beams. Some are low and you will have to mind your heads. The staircases are steep to all floors and uneven so please take extra care when going up and down stairs.

There is a kitchen on the second floor where there are very low pipes, some of which are hard to see, so torches are to be used when entering this part of the building.

Please respect the building as it is very old and Spire Spooks and Live Escape Salisbury would like to carry on with the ghost hunts.

On all floors you must be aware of steps and uneven floor surfaces. Spire Spooks will point out all areas where you need to take special care.

Fire escapes

There are two fire escapes in the building. One at the back of the building on the ground floor and one on the third floor leading to the delivery point of the Cross Keys. In the event of a fire leave the building by one of these exits and the assembly point will be outside The Guildhall in the market place.

If anyone needs to leave the event before the end please ensure you Spire Spooks know so they can mark you as left.

We will be having several breaks during the event. If you are a smoker you have to smoke out on the main path out of the Cross Keys centre. This is because smoking is banned in the shopping centre. Hands must be re-sanitised.

All equipment used will be sanitised after every use and if you borrow any equipment please take care of it.

Please be considerate to each other’s beliefs feelings and experiences. As people feel and experience different things.

The evening is for you to come and investigate the building. The more you put into it the more you get out of it.
