Keeping you safe at Wolsingham Show 2021

We will  stringently adhere to guidelines laid out by the Government Roadmap and recommendations for staging outdoor events, as well as working closely with Public Protection / Health England and DCC.

This year, more so than every before, the Show is going to be a real partnership event with all parties involved working together to ensure the Show is not only fantastic but also a safe CV-19 secure event.

Space for Social Distancing

Steps are being taken to remove obstructions from potentially high-volume areas. There will be no main arena attraction, increasing space in the main area for public viewing (show jumping/horses).

Admission Tickets

All entering the Showground over the Show period will be issued with an e-ticket to enable scanning on entry.  This will provide real time data and ensure the numbers of people on site always stay within safe levels. All tickets will be purchased in advance through our website to enable track and trace. (excluding Membership & Council, Stewards, Judges and exhibitors where wrist bands/ tickets will be provided)

Track & Trace

Visitors purchasing tickets will be required to provide contact details. All other attendees must register their details prior to receiving an admission ticket to ensure Track and Trace compliance.

Socially Distanced Gates

A revised entrance queueing system will be in place to ensure all gate locations provide suitable social distancing for both entry and queueing. ​​

Reduction in Indoor Spaces

The large marquees will be regulated with 1 way system in place. Traders will be given more space between stands in all marquees or enclosed areas (The Barn) Outdoor opportunities will be increased in areas such as the Members’ Bar.

Sanitising Stations

Hand sanitising stations will be based at all entry gates and in anticipated high-volume areas, with touch free handwash units spread throughout the site and outside toilet blocks. The number of toilet blocks will be significantly increased.

Mask Wearing

Mask wearing will be strongly advised in all inside spaces. Some areas will be designated “MASK ZONES” either at all times or at certain times of the day.

Widening of Avenues

Avenues will be widened to at least 6m to provide increased space for visitors to socially distance.

Crowd Density monitoring

High volume areas of the Showground will be constantly monitored and Stewards will be in position to encourage visitors to make the use of the whole site whilst maintaining social distancing.

One-way Systems

One-way systems will be introduced in high volume areas. Temporary one-way systems will be activated quickly in other areas if monitoring deems it necessary.
