What Covid precautions are you taking?

Although there is no longer a legal requirement to wear masks (unless you are medically exempt) at our event we would ask all attendees to still consider wearing a mask when and where possible as many of our vendors, Team, attendees, and loved ones remain clinically vulnerable.  Security will be temperature checking everyone on arrival and hand sanitiser will be provided throughout our event area.  Most vendors will accept contactless payments.  Vendors at our events have always been well spaced out and we are known for our wide accessible aisles.
