    You must observe social distancing rules and avoid close contact with others not inside your bubble. Our stewards and security teams will be helping to keep you safe by reminding people to keep a safe distance. If you have any concerns about areas of crowding, please inform one of our stewards. We recommend the use of the NHS Covid-19 App to help keep you and others safe if someone later develops symptoms or tests positive for Covid-19.

If there are issues with sanitiser points or hand washing facilities, please inform a member of stewarding staff.

    Please remember to maintain safe social distances to other visitors not in your bubble and be respectful and mindful to those around you whose individual circumstances may differ from your own.

    Please be patient when entering and leaving the Showground and listen to the advice from stewards. It may take longer than normal to enter and due to the procedures in place to allow visitors to exit safely and efficiently.
