Your Health and Safety

Our team has put in place a variety of measures to make your visit to the exhibition The Stars are Bright as safe and healthy as possible.  They include:

In general

You will be required to wear a face mask during your visit.

Please do not visit the exhibition if you are demonstrating or believe you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have potentially been exposed to the virus.

All guests are requested to book a time slot in advance on our website and to provide their name and contact details as well as those of their guests.  We discourage walk-up on the day without pre-booking a time slot.

We limit the number of guests per time slot to comply with maximum venue capacity. Your group may consist of a maximum of six people and everyone in the group must be from the same household or support bubble.  We keep a log of all guests who check in.

There will be one dedicated entrance and one dedicated exit.

No items will be available for purchase at the venue.

The venue will be cleaned on a daily basis, with particular attention to surfaces that guests may touch.

The queue

All queuing will take place outdoors.

Markings on the floor will help you respect the preferable social distance of 2m between guests from different households.

A space will be allotted outdoors for umbrella and buggy storage (at the owner’s risk).

When checking in

You will be required to wear a face mask during your visit beginning on 8 August.

A hand sanitizer dispenser is available when checking in at the entrance.

The ideal time to use the toilet is in the middle of your visit, between the first and second exhibition space.

During your visit

We will limit the number of guests during each time slot and actively manage the number of guests at the venue at any given time. Your group may consist of a maximum of six people and everyone in the group must be from the same household or support bubble.

A one-way path will be clearly indicated on the floor to avoid having visitors intersect.

The backs of tees worn by members of staff will remind guests to respect the preferable social distance of 2m between guests from different households.
