    • Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs):  If you have not been vaccinated (or your last vaccine was given less than 2 weeks before the event), we will require evidence of a negative LFT test, taken not more than 2 days before the event.  You can order free tests from the government website.  The result must be logged via the NHS AppWe will also require a photo of the test strip including the result window and test code number.
    • Positive Tests or Symptoms:  If you have been in close contact with someone with covid-19 or have tested positive by LFT or PCR tests in the week preceding, please do not come to the event.  Many of our members are clinically extremely vulnerable and we need to keep everyone as safe as possible.  For more information on signs and symptoms of covid-19, please visit our webpage.
