UKGE 2021 Intention to run 30th July to 1st August

15th June 2021

The government announced yesterday that it has delayed the easing of lockdown by 4 weeks. The new date for moving into Stage Four on the roadmap is now Monday 19th July.

While this is frustrating for everyone it does not effect our ability to run the show at the end of July and we are going ahead with our plans for a show as scheduled.

Lateral Flow Tests
The Event Research Group have now shown that a flow test at a test centre is no longer required for major events and a simple, free, home lateral flow test will suffice. This will involve you taking the test, uploading the result to the government website and you will receive a text which can be shown on entry. However it is highly likely that even this will not be required if full unlocking is enacted on the 19th July. We would still recommend you take a test before attending the show to keep you and everyone else safe.

We will continue to update you as we have more information.
