Public Notice: Coronavirus


In line with Government guidance, we are pleased to re-open the wider shopping centre from 12th April and welcome our shoppers back.
Our top priority is to provide a safe and secure shopping environment for our shoppers and retailers, and we are continually working alongside our retailers on-site to deliver this.
Please note that when our retailers re-open, some may initially operate with reduced opening hours.

Some of our health and safety measures at The Forum Centre include:
– Implementing social distancing measures to ensure your safety with signage throughout the centre.
– One way system- Please follow our one-way system around the centre
– Providing hand sanitising– Hand sanitisation stations are located around the centre; regular hand washing is essential to stop the spread.
– Compulsory face covering – It is important that we all respect one another and remember that the reasons for not wearing a face covering may not always be visible.

Individual stores will manage their own trading hours, phased entry process and socially distanced in-store experience.
Please check the social media channels and websites of our retailers for further details.

If you require any additional help whilst visiting please speak to a member of The Forum Centre team. Alternatively, you can contact us in advance of your visit on 0191 2628230

We would like to thank our retailers who are all working extremely hard in very challenging and unprecedented circumstances to ensure visitors are able to access goods and services. We would appreciate your support in respecting Government’s advice to adhere to social distancing.
If you have any feedback or questions, please get in touch with the centre management team or fill in our online survey.

We look forward to welcoming you and your families back on the 12th April.
