To ensure the event is safe and secure for everyone involved, we’ll be closely following government advice and implementing the following covid measures.
Everyone over 11 will need to demonstrate their COVID-19 Status before entering The National Wedding Show Olympia by providing one of the below:
• Proof of full vaccination – both doses received (with the second at least 14 days prior to the event).
• Proof of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test taken prior to travel on the day of arrival at the event.
• Proof of natural immunity based upon a positive PCR test within 180 days of the event (including 10 days self-isolation following the result).
You can show your status easily via the NHS COVID Pass on the NHS App. For more information on how to do this, please click here.
If you don’t have access to a smartphone or computer, then you can call 119 to request a letter to demonstrate your vaccination status or online here. Please note that the letter can take up to 5 working days to reach you. This letter will be sent to the address registered with your GP.
Downloading the NHS App can take up to 24hrs to validate, so make sure you do it early!
Not able to access the NHS COVID Pass?
If you cannot access your NHS COVID Pass or if you do not receive a vaccination status letter in time you will need to provide evidence of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test, by reporting the result here and presenting your NHS email or text notification at the entrance. Please note this will only be valid for 48 hours after a negative result.
If you are demonstrating your COVID-19 Status using an NHS Lateral Flow Test this should be taken prior to travel on the day of arrival at National Wedding Show Olympia. You can order NHS Lateral Flow Tests here or pick them up from any pharmacy or test site.
Once you have taken your test, you will need to report your result on the NHS website here. You will receive a text or email notification confirming your negative test result, to present on entry. Please note this will only be valid for 48 hours after a negative result.
A positive result from an NHS Lateral Flow Test means it’s likely you had coronavirus when the test was done. You and anyone you live with must not attend National Wedding Show Olympia and self-isolate immediately. You are then advised to get a PCR test to confirm your result as soon as possible.
If you are using an NHS Lateral Flow Test to demonstrate your COVID Status, this will remain valid for 48 hours from the time you took the test. You will then need to re-test on the expiry of the initial 48-hour period.
Unfortunately failure to adhere to the covid entry requirements will result in visitors being unable to enter the event, and tickets will be non-refundable.
We look forward to welcoming you to show!
