We will work with both venues in line with Scottish Government guidance and to ensure everyone's safety including:

  • Trace and protect QR codes in place on the day
  • Face masks to be used when moving around venue – can be removed for photographs and when seated/eating/drinking
  • Sanitizer station available on arrival
  • Safe distancing
  • negative lateral flow test (LFT) 48 hours prior to event with follow up negative PCR if positive LFT is initially positive
