COVID Advice for Reminisce Festival Goers
We’re as excited as you are for live events to be back on the table – and we can’t wait to see you at Reminisce Festival on Saturday 11th September. We’re working together with St Helen’s Borough Council, Public Health England and all necessary agencies to ensure that the event is held safely.
With cases of COVID-19 still increasing in St Helens and the surrounding areas, Reminisce Festival is encouraging everyone attending the concert at Sherdley Park, St Helens on Saturday 11th September to take some simple precautions to keep themselves and others safe:
Get a test: We are encouraging everyone who is attending to take a test at home within 36hrs prior to the event and again on day two and day five after the event even if you have had both doses of the COVID-19 vaccination. Rapid home testing kits (LFT) are available from gov.uk or can be collected from here. If you test positive you should isolate and a PCR test should be taken.
If you test positive and can no longer attend, please contact your ticket provider who will discuss refund and roll over enquiries.
Get your vaccine: Although we recognize getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a personal choice, we encourage you to get vaccinated, as it is thanks to the success of the vaccination programme that we are able to get back to doing the things we love.
Do not attend: If you have tested positive for coronavirus within the 10 days before the event, if you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 or if you have been in contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus within the last 10 days and you have not had both vaccinations.
Stay at home: and book a PCR test if you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 such as a high temperature, a new continuous cough or loss or change to your sense of smell/taste.
Be aware of other associated symptoms: If you’re feeling generally unwell with a headache, a stuffed or runny nose, tiredness or weakness, aches and pains, sore throat, or diarrhoea, take an LFT (lateral flow test) and follow up with a PCR test if the LFT is positive.
Wear a face covering: It is not mandatory to wear a face covering at Reminisce Festival. However, in line with the latest Government guidance, festival-goers are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in areas where you will come into close contact with lots of other people, such as bars and toilets or if you are travelling to the site on public transport, especially if it is crowded.
Be kind and considerate: Some people may feel a bit more nervous about being back in a crowded situation after so long, so please be respectful if someone chooses to wear a face covering or prefers to keep a distance.
For those that use the NHS COVID-19 Track & Trace app, there will be QR codes available to check-in to the event, if you wish to.
Reminisce Festival is not utilising COVID Certification as a condition of entry, however you can take advantage of our ‘Fast Track’ entry (limited tickets available - subject to availability, must be applied for in advance, terms & conditions apply), if you can provide proof of double vaccination via the NHS App.
