ORGANISERS of a music festival taking place on August 28 have revealed the Covid-19 safety measures in place on the day.

The My Dad’s Bigger than Your Dad Festival will be staged at Town Gardens Bowl from midday until 10pm, with proceeds from the festival going towards Prospect Hospice.

Organiser Ed Dyer said: “While the easing of restrictions means that some safety measures will no longer be a legal requirement, we understand that there are still risks, especially to vulnerable people, and this can cause anxiety. 

"To reduce the risk and anxiety to you and others around you, we are asking everyone working, performing or attending to prove their Covid-19 Status to gain access to the site.”

“Understandably lots of people are anxious about attending events after the past 18 months so we’ve decided to do all that we can to make them feel safer so that everyone can enjoy what will be a fantastic event."

People wishing to enter the all-day festival must provide either proof of full vaccination, a negative lateral flow test or proof of natural immunity, based upon a positive PCR test within 180 days of the festival, including 10 days self-isolation following the result.

NHS Test and Trace check-in will be available on arrival and hand sanitiser stations will be provided at all key areas of the festival.
