Now just over a week away from the beginning of the festive break and things, as it stands, are looking positive with regards to events still going ahead, with a few stipulations of course. One of those is COVID Vaccine passports…
If you happened to read our last update, you’ll have seen the most recent briefing on the matter from the UK government. As of Wednesday 15th December 2021 (yesterday), all event attendees in England will have to prove they’re either fully vaccinated or COVID free, by producing a negative lateral flow test, before being granted entry to a nightclub or venue. These measures are applicable to unseated indoor venues with more than 500 people, unseated outdoor venues with more than 4000 people and any venue with more than 10,000 people.
Wales, Scotland and Ireland have all issued their own guidance on COVID Vaccine Passports, with the majority already using the passport scheme in cinemas, theatres and other venues of entertainment.
Should everyone’s worst fears materialise and large events become deemed unsafe, you might want to think about postponing your event(s) until a later date. Find out more about how to do this in our Event Postponement article.
Obligatory COVID chatter out of the way, we’ve got some more information to share with you regarding this year’s remittance schedule and tips around ticket close times on NYE 2021. Keep reading to learn more…
