We will have a limited number of tests on site for emergencies but if we run out and you haven’t any other proof you may be asked to leave the event.
- Will I be able to register for this event on the day?
As we will need to collect all table guest details in advance of the award ceremony this year, you will not be able to buy a table on the day. This year, we will need to be more strict when it comes to collecting information from every guest attending on your table and we will need it in advance. Information about this will be sent to you nearer the time of the event.
- What happens if I am travelling from elsewhere in the UK? (Scotland, Wales etc)
You should check the restrictions in place where you intend to travel from before making arrangements to travel. If you do travel to England, you must follow the restrictions on what you can and cannot do until you arrive in England. Find out more about safe travel here
