Showing your NHS COVID Pass is required for admission.

This is consistent with Government recommendations, and is one of our mitigation measures helping to reduce the risk to our customers and crew.

The wellbeing of our customers and crew is our priority, so please remember why we're doing this and do not turn up if you don't have a pass. Sorry but we are unable to make any exceptions.


HOW TO OBTAIN THE NHS COVID PASS

You can get a digital NHS COVID Pass on an app from your mobile phone, or a printed paper NHS COVID Pass letter. Alternatively, you can ask for an NHS COVID Pass letter by calling 119.


Taken from the NHS website (Oct 2021):

To get a digital NHS COVID Pass for domestic events and venues, you need one of the following.

To be fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine used in the UK
The NHS COVID Pass is usually available 2 weeks after you're fully vaccinated.

A positive PCR test within the past 6 months (not available in the Isle of Man)
The NHS COVID Pass is available after you've finished self-isolating and up to 180 days after taking the test.

A negative PCR test or negative lateral flow test within the past 48 hours (not available in the Isle of Man)
The NHS COVID Pass is available as soon as you get your result. If you did a rapid lateral flow test at home, you need to report the result first. Find out how to report a rapid lateral flow test result

To be part of an official COVID-19 vaccine trial in England or Wales
The NHS COVID Pass is now available to you. Contact your clinical trial site if you cannot get your domestic NHS COVID Pass.

A confirmed medical exemption from COVID-19 vaccination or testing
The NHS COVID Pass is available once a doctor, clinician or midwife has approved your exemption application. COVID-19 medical exemptions: proving you are unable to get vaccinated (GOV.UK).

What you need to get a pass When you can get a pass
2 doses of the Moderna, AstraZeneca or Pfizer vaccine, or 1 dose of the Janssen vaccine 2 weeks after your 2nd dose (Moderna, AstraZeneca and Pfizer), or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine (Janssen)
Negative PCR test or rapid lateral flow test within the past 48 hours As soon as you get your result

If you did a rapid lateral flow test at home, report your rapid lateral flow test result on GOV.UK first
Positive PCR test within the past 6 months After you've finished self-isolating and up to 180 days after taking the test

Please note: your NHS COVID Pass can be found on the NHS App - not the NHS Covid-19 App!

Here's a video showing how to do it:


We recommend that you prepare for this now, or in good time, long before you arrive. Please have your pass ready to be viewed on arrival - thank you.

Please do NOT attend if you:
  • are feeling unwell
  • have symptoms, such as a high temperature, continuous cough, or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste;
  • should be self-isolating;
  • know that you have come into contact with someone who has, or may have, COVID-19.

Remember that we reserve the right to refuse admission or ask you to leave.

Keep your hands clean

We all need to do our bit. Please wash your hands after each trip to the loo (obviously!), and regularly use the provided hand sanitisers throughout the session.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes please. This is because:

  1. We do not store your COVID status, which is classed as 'special category data', as it is private health information;
  2. We're not robots 🤖🤖 - so we can't be expected to reliably remember everyone's status (double jab / lateral flow test), every time you visit - particularly as we may use various door persons.
Therefore please have your COVID Pass ready on each visit. Sure, it's a minor inconvenience - but once it’s done you can feel good knowing that the other dancers in the room are a similarly low risk as you. Remember, we’re just doing our best to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Please be considerate to your door person. Any abuse will not be tolerated. Thank you for your understanding.

It's no longer mandatory, so you don't have to, but you may if you wish. We recommend masks on arrival or trips to the bar or loo etc but do not expect this. Dancing is a form of physical exercise so be aware that mask-wearing may affect your breathing.

Yes, if you wish, until we're back to 'normal'. Others may choose to follow our usual format of rotating partners.

No. We endeavour to keep numbers to sensible levels in our venues but we rarely need to turn anyone away.

Yes. You may also wish to bring your own. We strongly recommend frequent hand sanitising or washing throughout the session.

Updated: 19 July 2021

We are so excited to be able return to the dance floor after such a long time. We will do what we can ensure our events are as safe and accessible as they can be for our customers and crew. However, there is now an unavoidable element of risk when it comes to attending a dance night, much like other social engagements where humans are in close proximity, like a pub, nightclub or restaurant. We will continue to follow Government guidance to help minimise this risk. The wellbeing of our customers and crew is at the forefront of all our decisions.

The choice is yours. Step 4 of the roadmap includes enabling the public to make informed decisions through guidance, rather than laws. Information on Coronavirus (COVID-19) is available.

As individuals we all have different personal circumstances and therefore different views about returning to normal. Some of us will want to return immediately, while some may wish to wait a bit longer. Some will be raring to go, others will be more anxious. Some will prefer to dance only with friends, some will want to rotate partners. Some may wish to wear masks (this is a personal choice and no longer mandatory), others may not since dance is a physical exercise. Please be understanding of other peoples choices. Please be polite.
