COVID-19 - How we are keeping you safe?

The health and safety of staff at our events is a key priority. We have planned all of our events to be covid safe in line with government guidelines and continue to review these as advice changes. All staff working at events will be given training on covid safety precautions and how they can keep themselves and others safe.
