Covid Safety Measures

We are delighted to have been deemed a ‘Good to Go’ venue by Visit England and we have been working hard behind the scenes to plan our Shows within current government guidelines. To ensure the safety of our members, visitors, exhibitors, volunteers and staff we have the following safety measures in place for our Shows:

  • IF YOU FEEL UNWELL, HAVE ANY COVID-19 SYMPTOMS OR ARE SELF-ISOLATING PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND.
  • Please come and enjoy the Show in groups in line with any government restrictions valid at the time.
  • We strongly recommend visitors purchase their tickets online in advance of the Show to ensure entry since numbers on site are currently limited for everyone’s safety.
  • By purchasing online tickets to the Show visitors are agreeing to share their details and their party’s details to NHS Test & Trace within a 21 day period of their attendance should this be necessary. You must know the contact details of all your party. Tickets are not transferable.
