PRIOR COVID TESTS WILL BE COMPULSORY IN ORDER TO ATTEND MIDLANDS AIR FESTIVAL
The organisers work closely with various organisations to assure your safety, including the Police, Environmental Health and Health and Safety. After seeking their advice, it has been decided to ask that all attendees take a Covid Lateral Flow Test within the prior 24 hours of travelling to the Festival.
Covid Lateral Flow Tests may be available at your place of work. If not, they are available, free of charge, here: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests as well as at your local pharmacy.
The tests are very simple to take, with instructions provided.
Once taken you can register a negative result with the NHS following the instructions in the pack. You will then get a text and email confirmation. When you arrive at the Festival you will need to show either a print out of this confirmation or the electronic original on a phone or tablet.
This applies to all ticket holders of 12 years age or more.
You must not attend the Festival if you have symptoms of Covid.
We hope you will understand our efforts to keep you all safe and are looking forward to welcoming you to a fantastic event.
With best regards
Trevor Graham & James McDonald
Midlands Air Festival Organisers”
