While the easing of restrictions means that some safety measures will no longer be a legal requirement, and we know a lot of people remain cautious. In line with the government advice to act carefully, we feel it is important to continue with certain measures to be on the safe side.
Here is what we are doing to make sure everyone feels as safe as possible at our Event.
Temperature checks on entry to the park
NHS track and trace on arrival
Contactless payments at our bars (preferred payment method)
Hand sanitiser stations
Covid risk assessment
Although the legal requirement to wear a face covering in England ended on 19 July, the government expects and recommends that people continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces.
