- Negative test result taken in the last 24 hours (NHS app or text message confirmation)
- Or otherwise provide proof that you are exempt from vaccination on the basis of a medical exemption or you have taken part in a clinical trial for a COVID-19 vaccine
- If you are unable to provide any of these, you will be required to take a lateral flow test and entry will be permitted on sight of a negative result.
2. The venue has been fully risk assessed and attendee numbers have been limited to allow for a safe capacity.
3. All attendees are encouraged to take a Lateral Flow Test within 24 hours of when you are due to arrive at the Awards, and register the result with HM Govt.
