Our temporary COVID arrival procedures means check-in registration (to get your wristband and chalet key) will only be possible between these times:

FRIDAY from 3pm/4pm/5pm(*) until 2am Saturday morning

SATURDAY from 10am until 10pm

SUNDAY from 10am until 8pm

(* Friday 3pm/4pm/5pm depending on your chalet type i.e. Club can check-in from 3pm, but Budget is from 5pm)

if you arrive outside of these times, you will not be able to access the main building until the COVID check desk opens the following morning. This will mean no dancing until the following day!

Where to go when you arrive

Initial entry to the main building will only be granted after your photo ID and COVID check. You will be given a temporary hand stamp that will then permit you entry to the main building to receive your wristband and chalet key.

Friday before 10pm, go to the large marquee between the main building and club chalets (green arrow 1). Checks and the hand stamp will take place in there. Then go to the main building for your wristband and chalet key.

Friday after 10pm, use the left-hand doors at the main entrance (blue arrow 2)

The right-hand door (orange arrow 3) and other entrances are ONLY if you have been checked and have your initial handstamp or wristband.

Arrivals on Saturday or Sunday should also use the left-hand entrance (blue arrow 2) and attract the attention of the internal wristband checker to have someone come to you.

Further information to answer frequently asked questions

Rapid self-test ‘Lateral Flow Testing’ (LFT) is currently free from the NHS and even if vaccinated we are all being asked to self-test before meeting others in crowded indoor places or meeting others at a higher risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

There are several kits available from the NHS. The original involves a sample from the throat and nose. It takes a few minutes to prepare and then 30 minutes for the result to process. Pharmacies are most likely to be giving out this type of kit but might also begin to have the new kits.

Newer kits are now nose only. They also take a few minutes to prepare and then a waiting time of 15 minutes for the result. These are very likely to be supplied when ordering online to be posted to you.

For all rapid tests, the control line should appear very quickly. See the instructions with your specific test kit for the waiting time but this is between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the kit.

You must wait the specified waiting time as stated in the instructions that come with your LFTs

If the test does not test anything (negative result) then expect to see a strong control (C) line and the rest of the paper a very clean white.

If the test detects you are infectious (positive result) then the T line may be faint or strong. It may appear quickly or slowly.

Therefore it generally takes at least 20 minutes per person to conduct the test and get a result.

As per the instructions, the results are void after 20-30 minutes (depending on the kit). This is one reason why you need to report the result, dispose of the device and not bring the device to the actual event.

Tested positive within the previous 90 days?

The government and NHS advice changed just before Christmas 2021. LFT and PCR tests work in different ways. Further PCR tests may detect fragments of inactive virus but report this is a positive result unless it’s a more specialist lab giving a more detailed report. LFT tests work differently and are significantly less likely to return a repeat positive result within these 90 days.

This means every person attending must use an LFT test.


You can still report the result even if not registered with the NHS. You can most likely make arrangements to get the kits from someone before the event and doing this like everyone else will give you the best experience.
