The health, safety and well-being of our visitors remains our number one priority. We have reviewed all of our procedures across our events to ensure that we keep everyone safe, and we will continue to review our approach based upon UK Government guidelines and Public Health England.
For each event we have carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment and addressed the specific adjustments needed, in line with the industry standard guidelines.
