The safety and comfort of our visitors and team is our top priority. We continue to follow Government guidance and will review as the roadmap out of lockdown progresses. To help us to do this we will implement the following: 

  • Increased cleaning and reduced visitor numbers. Hand sanitiser stations located throughout the centre.
  • Social distancing from other visitors and staff. (Parents and guardians are responsible to make sure the children in their care follow this, too.)
  • Capacity in our show spaces has been reduced to ensure social distancing between households, and all seats are sanitised between every show. 
  • Face coverings are mandatory for all visitors and our team unless there is a valid reason not to wear one (such as a medical exemption or other permitted reason. Children under the age of 11 are also exempt).
  • We are recording the contact details of every visitor (over the age of 16) including arrival time. We will only share this information with NHS Test and Trace when asked, if our venue is linked to 2 or more COVID-19 cases.
  • We have the NHS QR code poster displayed by the entrance for visitors to scan when they arrive by using the NHS COVID-19 app on their smartphone.
  • We are asking visitors not to come onsite if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or if they or someone in their household has tested positive for the virus within the past 10 days.



Really enjoyed the day, fab measures in place for social distancing and a lovely exhibit. Definitely coming back.
