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.
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.

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.
  What happens if the event is rescheduled due to an outbreak of coronavirus or a change of government guidance?
We’re confident that our festival will go ahead as planned, but in the unfortunate event of rescheduling or if the current government guidance changes, all affected ticket purchases will be rolled over to the new festival date. Should Government guidelines change and/or restrictions on travel from specific areas or postcodes be reintroduced, affected tickets would be rolled over to the new festival date.
  What should I do if I feel ill?
If you fall ill on the festival day, please put on your face covering and approach the nearest steward, remaining at a safe distance and informing them of your symptoms. A qualified First Aider will then be called to attend to you and appropriate care will be provided. We will have a dedicated First Aid area and Covid-19 Isolation tent available.

The same regulations apply at Reminisce as in the rest of the country: you can smoke in the open air but not inside big tops and tents. look out for the ‘No Smoking’ signs.
No smoking allowed in enclosed spaces, but what about vaping? The same rules apply. As long as you’re not in an enclosed space, such as a tent, you are fine to vape.
One of Reminisce's strictest rules is its restriction of glass bottles and containers. No matter what's in the bottle, you cannot bring it in. Thus, your e-liquid will have to be in a plastic bottle.
There is a limit on the amount of e-liquid or batteries you can take: 2 refills and one spare set of batteries per vape and only for personal use. You should not attempt to sell or distribute your vaping products at Reminisce.
